Planned Parenthood on the ropes as Republicans move in for knockout punch

A unified Republican government is poised to slash hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars from Planned Parenthood’s annual budget — the culmination of a public relations nightmare 18 months in the making that has left the nation’s largest abortion provider more vulnerable than ever to pro-life advances.

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, said Thursday that the budget reconciliation legislation to repeal Obamacare will include a provision to remove Planned Parenthood from the taxpayer dole.

Mr. Ryan issued his statement one day after a House committee released a 418-page report detailing Planned Parenthood’s complicity in the illicit sale of body parts from abortions for profit.

Meanwhile, several Republican-led states are preparing to restrict abortions. Kentucky lawmakers last week passed legislation to ban abortions 20 weeks after conception, when the fetus is believed to be able to feel pain. Other states, including Virginia, plan to introduce similar bills this year, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican, signed such a bill into law last month.

Clarke Forsythe, acting president of Americans United for Life, said Planned Parenthood has never been in more danger of losing its taxpayer-funded status in the nearly half-century that it has performed abortions.

    Hope the ‘action’ will very quickly follow the ‘talk’. Cannot happen too soon.

    Any organization that has millions to use for political purposes in no way needs ANY of my tax money. They can pay their own electric bill, supplies and wages.

    IF I were to choose an organization to help it would be something like the VA, Neonatal units or St Jude.

    It’s time to cut Planned Parenthood out of the federal budget. We are approximately 20,000,000,000,000.00 in debt. Planned Parenthood turns a big profit every year. They will survive just fine without taxpayer funding.

    Fortunately Kentucky’s all Republican leadership is finally able to help our state stand for life. The Democrats in state government had blocked commonsense restrictions on abortions for many years. Life is breaking out in Kentucky thanks to a Republican house, senate and governor.

    PP is supposed to be a means to manage a family, not kill off the one’s you don’t want…I am tired of seeing tax money given to anti choice thinking favoring abortions, tired of handing out affordable birth control for those who simply don’t want to pay for it……PP can be a real help in mentoring and care, so why not just give responsible advice about furthering life and not taking it?

    I agree, next up for defunding of tax dollars, NPR. If they can’t pay for their own broadcasting, should not be in business.

  • Webb says:

    Planned Parenthood, along with NPR, Defund Entirely…
    Stop the murder of 2 to 3 hundred thousand unborns every year…
    May PPH like Obama in the future become just a Memory!
