WASHINGTON The House has approved a Republican proposal to block federal aid for Planned Parenthood. The 240-185 vote on Friday is a victory for anti-abortion forces led by Indiana GOP Rep. Mike Pence. He says taxpayer money should not go to groups that provide or promote abortion. Democrats say Planned Parenthood provides contraception and other valuable family planning services, and that cutting off the money will make it hard for women to get such basic help.

The liberals on my Twitter feed are absolutely losing their mind over this. I’m enjoying it.
How hard can it be to walk into a drugstore and buy a rubber?
Pro-life entities get by on private donations, why can’t pro-abortion advocates?
Sound like something Douche Ron Paul would vote against.
Finally! Washington has heard the voice of the U.S. majority! The American people are going to absolutely love the Republican party for what it's doing. This is the first time they've ever tried to stand up, and the country is cheering them on because of it.
If they keep working for and supporting the tax payers like they are now, the democrat party is toast.
Dems say it is a Bill Of Attainder and will be overthroen by the courts.
Maybe, no such case has made it to the Supreme Court but in an Acorn case the 2nd appelate court ruled that banning funds to it was not a punishment because the funds were less than 10% of it’s funding.
Not sure how well reasoned the opinion was or how large a part of PP overall funding this bill ( I think 300 plus million) rescinds .
I could guess, but the main thing is do defund the murder of the innocent.
SWEET! I love it when the libturds get their panties twisted up.
I hope they defund NPR/CPB, the NEAs (both of them), the EPA and support for the UN next.
Why do we need the UN? I say send ‘em to Juarez to set up shop. New York is too good for all those weasels.
I’ll soon see the fun on facebook
If some bimbo down the road can’t keep her legs together, why should I have to bail her out????
Thank you, God, for Mike Pence! This is a great day in America!
Let us hope that they also vote NO MONEY for abortions for any reasons, no exceptions.
It should be the same for all Non-Government Organizations, cut them all off. This is how the left continues to thrive in this country, YOUR money.

There is absolutely nothing more entertaining that to see the sputtering, hair pulling, eye rolling, fist punding, name calling liberals get the smack down. Delicious. Pass the popcorn please;)
FRIDAY announcement - playing the liberals’ media game
Is this NOT breaking news??
It is hard to believe. heh
Maybe they're hiding out with the WI democrats somewhere. Coward is as coward does.
What is Mike Pence’s address? I want to send him a Thank-You card.
I’m betting they’re shouting about “women’s health issues”, etc, and all the “good” that PP does for women’s health.
I’d say - no problem, keep the “women’s health” programs going, stop doing abortions, and we’ll talk about re-funding them.
Yeah. Me too. A big Thank You would be nice.
