Important vote to defund Planned Parenthood this holiday season

Passage in the Senate of a reconciliation bill to defund Planned Parenthood could depend on input from voters.

Already passed in the House, the bill is to be considered in the Senate next. Dr. David O'Steen, executive director of the National Right to Life Committee, tells OneNewsNow that a crucial part of the bill is language that would lead to defunding the majority of Planned Parenthood's funds from the federal government.

“If passed and signed by President Obama, whom we know is very pro-abortion and pro-Planned Parenthood, it would defund about 89 percent of the money Planned Parenthood gets through the federal government,” he explains. “And it is the intention of Senator Mitch McConnell [R-Kentucky] to have the bill go to the floor with the defund Planned Parenthood language.”

There will be an effort to strip the language from the reconciliation bill, a measure that would require only 51 votes to pass, so O'Steen suggests that voters call their two senators with a strong message.
