Skip to comments.Bill to DeFund Planned Parenthood Re-Introduced in New Congress
Posted on 01/04/2013 5:27:46 PM PST by Kaslin
Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn has officially re-introduced legislation to de-fund abortion giant Planned Parenthood. With Mike Pence now in Indiana, Blackburn is heading up the effort on the Capitol Hill to protect the unborn.
Blackburn informed LifeNews today that she has introduced the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act (H.R. 61), which would stop the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) from providing federal family planning assistance under Title X to abortion businesses until they certify they won’t provide and refer for abortions.
The reintroduction of this legislation in the 113th Congress is similar to legislation Pence introduced in the 112th Congress (H.R. 217).
“Congressman Pence has been a champion in the fight to protect innocent human life and I hope to continue his leadership in the House,” Blackburn said. “As a woman, I believe America deserves better than abortion. America shouldn’t celebrate abortion and our taxpayers shouldn’t subsidize abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood, who profit from the destruction of human life with taxpayer money. It’s fiscally irresponsible and morally indefensible.”
Meanwhile, this photo of a baby being born via c-section and squeezing the doctor's finger is going viral.
BTW what a great name for the baby
I’m sure that COSTCO, the APPLE Corp, will all be glad to fund the Planned Parenthood group. I think it’s time has come and gone, and we need to start cutting spending, and this is a good place to begin... Slash it.
Perhaps Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn can introduce a companion piece of legislation to defund NPR.
Defunding NPR and Planned Parenthood would be a great start for 2013.
Mr. Speaker, Speaker Boehner, please pick up the white courtesy phone...
HOORAY Marsha Blackburn! DEFUND Planned Parenthood and EVERY other socialist collective, foreign and domestic. Move the parasites out of our pockets and out of politics. Let them live or die on their own.
