Historic Amendment to Defund Planned Parenthood Passes Overwhelmingly in U.S House

Breaking News!

The House Republicans are on a roll.  Not only did they also vote to defund Obamacare today, but they also voted to defund Planned Parenthood 240-185.  The bill sponsored by Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) was amended to the 2011 Federal Spending Bill.

After the bill was passed, Pence stated “This afternoon’s vote is a victory for taxpayers and a victory for life. By banning federal funding to Planned Parenthood, Congress has taken a stand for millions of Americans who believe their tax dollars should not be used to subsidize the largest abortion provider in America.  I commend my colleagues in both parties for taking a stand for taxpayers and a stand for life.”

The bill now heads to the U.S. Senate, where it may face a tougher time to pass.  Let's hope the conscience of those U.S. Senators remains intact for the sake of the unborn.
