Senate Introduces Bill to Defund Planned Parenthood

As I live & breathe I didn’t think we’d see this, and certainly not so fast, so I’m holding my breath to see what the catch is. It’s a given that there’s pork in it somewhere. Senator Cornyn posted this on his Facebook page from Life News. His statement:

“The blatant disregard for precious, human life depicted in these videos is shocking, and we must stand up to protect our most vulnerable. This bill will ensure taxpayer dollars are used to fund women’s health, not to subsidize a political organization that perpetuates these kinds of abhorrent practices.”

After negotiations between pro-life members of the Senate, a new bill has been introduced that will totally de-fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business. The legislation follows three shocking videos that have caught Planned Parenthood doctors discussing and arranging the sale of body parts of aborted babies.

Not only does the bill de-fund Planned Parenthood, it takes the taxpayer dollars that had been slated for the abortion business and sends them to legitimate women’s health care. The bills transfers funding from Planned Parenthood and sends it to agencies that provides for women’s health services including relevant diagnostic laboratory and radiology services, well-child care, prenatal and postpartum care, immunization, family planning services including contraception, sexually transmitted disease testing, cervical and breast cancer screenings, and referrals.

“As a mother and grandmother, I find this footage of Planned Parenthood’s role in the harvesting of the organs of unborn babies morally reprehensible and vile,” said Senator Ernst. “If Planned Parenthood sold unique human organs to research labs, by definition they had to be unique human lives in the womb when they were aborted. It is time for federal taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood to end and let community health centers use that funding to provide health care services for those in greatest need.”

Cosponsors of the bill include Senators John Barrasso (WY), Roy Blunt (MO), John Boozman (AR), Richard Burr (NC) Dan Coats (IN), Tom Cotton (AR) John Cornyn (TX), Ted Cruz (TX), Steve Daines (MT), Mike Enzi (WY), Deb Fischer (NE), James Inhofe (OK), Johnny Isakson (GA), Ron Johnson (WI), James Lankford (OK), John McCain (AZ) Mitch McConnell (KY), Jerry Moran (KS), Rand Paul (KY), David Perdue (GA), Pat Roberts (KS), Ben Sasse (NE), Tim Scott (SC), and John Thune (SD).

A total of 10 states have already launched an investigation including Tennessee, Massachusetts, KansasMissouri, Arizona, Indiana, Ohio, Georgia, Texas and Louisiana and members of Congress have launched an investigation as well.

O will have to approve this or look like the worst monster in the world, so there’s hope this may actually come to pass.

There are plenty of other clinics and facilities where women can receive the other services offered by PP, so there’s no need to keep their doors open.

I doubt the heads of PP will take this lying down, so get ready for the fur to fly.

    And then some Kathy. This was touched on in Cruz’s rant in Senate. Hopefully it touched a nerve.

  2. Crawfish says:

    But McConnell made sure it was not attached to the highway bill, so the left could generate support from the media that has ignored the story

  3. JenZ says:

    O was against banning partial birth abortion, so I don’t think he’d feel any pressure to sign this. He only cares about his own agenda and himself.

    • Kathy says:

      Jen, I’m not so sure about that – how does he rationalize this to a nation of people outraged by it? Maybe he gives in on this one and takes his battle to the next issue?

  4. Grouchy says:

    The one problem I foresee on this, and I could be in error, but don’t all financial bills LEGALLY (Except Obablacare) have to originate in the House? Or, what am I missing here??
    Still, I’m glad our congress critters are getting off their heinies and doing something about this murderous abomination.

  5. Hardnox says:

    Well, pinch me! Wow, who knew anyone in DC moves this fast. The switchboard must have been lit up. Good!

    I wonder if this is just kabuki theater?

  6. vonmesser says:

    If it even passes, O will veto it.
    However, that could be a good thing in the long run – we can tie disdain for human life on him.

  7. 219rad says:

    I called DC on Sunday and the switchboard said they were in session, so I left a message for Corey Gardner R-CO to get his butt in gear on this one.

  8. Blessed B. says:

    I think all human lives are unique… but that’s just my two cents worth!

    I don’t think PP is the only organization that are selling human baby parts for a profit….but this is a good first step in the right direction.
