Pro-Life Leader Calls for McConnell's Resignation Over Senate Inability to Defund Planned Parenthood
The withdrawal of the bill kills any hope of defunding Planned Parenthood of Federal tax money until next year.
"I am extremely disappointed in the Republican members of the U.S. Senate who could not band together to get this bill done. It angers me that we have to fund Planned Parenthood for another year. This means Planned Parenthood will have the resources it needs to continue its killing spree, and thousands of lives will be lost because of it," said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Co-Founder of the Center for Medical Progress, which exposed Planned Parenthood's participation in the illegal sale of organs and tissue obtained from aborted babies.
Defunding Planned Parenthood was a high priority for the Trump administration, which promised to redirect funds from the abortion giant to legitimate health care providers that do not participate in abortions.
