Pence Drops Bill to De-Fund Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz
Washington, DC -- Congressman Mike Pence dropped a bill in the hopper today in the House of Representatives that would revoke federal taxpayer funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

Preparing for his presidential by conforming to the party’s positions...
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.
That’s exactly what I thought when i fist read the title.
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.
What an a and liar.
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.
Pence is not a fan of abortion.
Yea...Very clever writing...
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!
Please fix the headline. It’s ambiguous and misleading.
Life News is Pro-Life...and the editor who wrote the article is pro-life. He shouldn’t be writing.
