WASHINGTON, Feb. 2, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- U.S. Congressman Mike Pence released the following statement today regarding an undercover video that showed potential criminal activity at a Planned Parenthood clinic in New Jersey:
"The recent release of an undercover video exposing duplicity and potential criminality by an employee of Planned Parenthood is an outrage. "Every American should be shocked that an employee of the largest recipient of federal funds under Title X has been recorded aiding and abetting underage sex trafficking.
"The time to deny any and all funding to Planned Parenthood is now. In the wake of yet another scandal involving Planned Parenthood, I urge Congress to move the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act to the floor for immediate consideration."
Years overdue, but now - with a Republican-dominated House and the newest Planned Parenthood scandal - we may finally be able to stop taxpayer funding of baby-killing.
Go Pence. Get those b*st*rds.
There’s plenty of left wing organizations that will fund these abortuaries. Cut them off now. Get NPR next. You guys are becoming more awesome everyday.
He’s dead on. Even those who are not that strong on the Life issue are going to be on board with the cost savings here. It looks like a perfect storm to end all Gov’t funding for this. I will take what we can get. Good for Pence.
Actually the time to defund it was January 1995 when the Republicans had control of BOTH houses of Congress for the first time in many decades.
“...the time to defund it was January 1995 when the Republicans had control of BOTH houses of Congress...”
We may be slow but Rahm taught us well. Now that Obamacare has the democrats in hot water “crisis” with 26 states opposing implementation and 2 federal judges calling it unconstitutional, we wouldn’t want this issue crisis to go to waste. Yes, strike now against PP. They would.
I agree with Mike Pence. Let’s DO it!!!!
“Theres plenty of left wing organizations that will fund these abortuaries.”
I think abattoir might be a better term.
Fine and well.
But, I have to lament. Where were the Repubs while Bush was President? They lost me to the point of feeling that I did not have a party. And, Honorable Pence, do you REALLY think you can pull this off? Or is this bluster and confetti?
BTW :The PC term for abortions is 'reproductive options'. The term 'Abortion' is like the term 'illegal', a very divisive term :)
(sigh) Why will you not run for president, Pence?
Furthermore, even if one were pro-choice, the revelation that the group's employees attempted to aid and abet child sex trafficking should be enough to pull funding.
