Pro-life leader defends GOP amid Zika fight

A two-month battle has ensued on Capitol Hill, where Democrats held up Zika funding to obtain funds for abortion giant Planned Parenthood.

Douglas Johnson of the National Right to Life Committee says the blames goes to the Democrats.

"Who were simply willing to let there be no mosquito control, no vaccine development funds," Johnson claims, "unless these funds were not constrained in the way that the Republicans wanted to constrain them."
