(Worthy News) - The Senate is poised to vote Monday on a bill to defund Planned Parenthood brought by pro-life Republicans even as pro-choice groups take to federal court to stop the release of more graphic undercover videos on the fetal tissue business, the Washington Times reported.
The bill would strip Planned Parenthood of its half-billion dollars in annual federal funding, a vote that puts swing state Democrats in a political bind even if the measure fails to meet the 60-vote threshold needed to overcome a filibuster.
Also on Monday, a federal judge in San Francisco will weigh whether to impose a long-term ban on the center’s release of undercover footage from the National Abortion Federation’s closed meetings. [ Source ]
