“This vote was a huge step toward ending taxpayer support for an abortion chain that takes the lives of over 320,000 preborn children every year. We’ve seen millions of Americans who are opposed to taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood speak out at town halls, march in cities across the nation, and call and write their members of Congress.
“We have a president who is prepared to sign this long-awaited bill into law, so I urge the Senate to move quickly to pass it. Every day they delay, taxpayers are forced to send another $1.5 million to Planned Parenthood, which allows this abortion corporation to keep its doors open and kill another 887 innocent children in the womb. This bill will end this funding for one year.
“Planned Parenthood was given the opportunity to end its abortion business in order to keep receiving taxpayer funding, but they chose abortion over helping women in need of health care. There is no reason for the Senate to hesitate in redirecting this money to the thousands of health clinics across America that actually provide authentic health care and are accessible to millions more women.”
