The bill that House Republicans passed yesterday, and which I commented about here, funds the government for six months into the new fiscal year, which begins on October 1. According to CNS News, the bill
will permit funding for Planned Parenthood and ObamaCare—including the regulation that took effect on Aug. 1 that will require virtually all health plans in the United States to cover, without fees or co-pay, sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives, including those that induce abortions.
According to its 2009–2010 annual report, Planned Parenthood received $487.4 million in government money; and according to its fact sheet, Planned Parenthood performed 329,445 abortions in 2010.
Why do “pro-life” Republicans continue to fund abortion? Yes, I know that Planned Parenthood provides other “services” besides abortion, but why should the organization (or any organization) receive any federal dollars in the first place?11:05 am on September 14, 2012 Email Laurence M. Vance
