What an awful headline. If you “drop” a bill, it means you’ve given up and are no longer seeking passage. Apparently, that is not what Pence is doing. He’s actually fighting for what is right.

This is a misleading title (by mistake, I’m sure) from Life News.

In reality (from my reading) it means the process on this bill got STARTED, not ended.

“It is morally wrong to end an unborn human life by abortion. It is also morally wrong to take the taxpayer dollars of millions of pro-life Americans and use them to promote abortion at home or abroad,” Pence said today on the House floor in introducing his bill.

Pence is trying to de-fund Planned Parnthood.

What a stupid headline! The headline reads like Pence decided to NOT defund, when he actually is sponsoring a bill, with over 100 co-sponsors, to DEFUND abortion in Title X.

Wow ... that’s one CRAP HEADLINE!!!

Had to read the article, believing that Pence would fight FOR such legislation.

Press has gone from Watchdog, to Lapdog to rear windshield stuffed dog with the turnsignal eyes.

Quotation marks might’ve at least indicated another meaning.

They shouldn’t just de-fund their abortion business, they should de-fund the whole thing. No tax money at all should go to Planned Parenthood. We’re bankrupt. This should be an easy decision.

Good grief, the headline is the opposite from the story. Dropping a bill means sh*tcanning it. That is not what Pence is doing.

Sorry, I thought he was not going to defund. Take it back if he does.

You should add something to the title to clarify.

Defunding PP is a great start to reducing the deficit. If their work is so “valuable”, they should easily be able to replace the funding with private donations.

Oh geez what a crappy haedline. My heart stopped when I saw it and I thought that if a guy like Pence was backing down we’re doomed!

Life News is Pro-Life...and the editor who wrote the article is pro-life. He shouldn’t be writing.

Washington, DC -- Congressman Mike Pence dropped a bill in the hopper

I assume this means he submitted the bill for consideration and that he is sponsoring it.

The headline says he "dropped the bill" ... which implies the opposite.

I detest the leftist secular media.

Take a look at the comments. Take a look at the headline. I know we do not alter headlines. Even if some idiot headline editor had his head up his ....

But maybe you can add (Actually Pence STILL SUPPORTS De-Funding)

Or something like that.

Go Mike Pence.

If genocidal women intend to kill their babies let them or whoever supplied the sperm pay for it. Not the taxpayer.

This is the first time I've seen any media outlet use 'drop' in this way. Pence submitted the bill. You would think 'Life News' would be a little more careful.

Headline is very misleading. He didn't "drop" it, he submitted it! WAY TO GO, PENCE!! Take all their freaking money away. The House (afaik) can defund anything it wants.

DEFUND IT ALL AND I MEAN ALL!!! Everything! Including the repeal of DADT! It will cost money to implement, take every thin dime away from it!

The headline has been changed at the LifeNews website. Somebody’s head probably rolled over the original.
