The Republican-led House approved an amendment Friday that would prohibit federal funding for Planned Parenthood.

The measure, which passed the House 240 to 185, blocks Planned Parenthood from receiving federal funds for any of its activities. The organization already is banned from using federal funds to perform most abortions.

Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest provider of abortions and a longtime target of abortion foes.
