Defunding Planned Parenthood will have to wait until Obama's gone
An attempt was made to defund Planned Parenthood last year, but the United States Senate blocked it. National Right to Life Committee president Carol Tobias asserts that any future attempt to defund the abortion giant will have to wait until the Obama administration leave the White House in January.
“We have a pro-abortion, pro-Planned Parenthood ideologue in the White House, and until he leaves office, there's not going to be a whole lot we can do to keep that money from Planned Parenthood,” Tobias insists.
More than half a billion federal tax dollars currently goes to Planned Parenthood. This is in spite of its recent scandals involving the harvesting and sale of aborted baby body parts for a profit – not to mention over-billing the federal government. It is argued that stripping the world’s largest abortion provider of tax money will be difficult.
