“We are so grateful that Vice President Mike Pence, who began the battle to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion corporation when he was a Congressman, traveled up Pennsylvania Avenue to cast the tie-breaking vote in defense of human dignity and babies lives.  This Senate vote to advance H.J.Res 43 is a victory for all Americans who don’t want to see their tax dollars subsidizing the abortion industry and its ghoulish trafficking in aborted baby’s organs.  In the wake of undercover videos revealing a heartbreaking and callous disregard for human life at Planned Parenthood centers, in which staff were caught trafficking in baby’s livers, eyeballs, and brains, many states moved to reallocate funding to women’s health centers that do not provide abortions. The Obama Administration issued regulations prohibiting states from doing so, and today’s action by Congress will repeal regulations so that states will be free again to fund non-abortion providing health clinics.  The videos were authenticated by forensic analysis and Planned Parenthood’s president, Cecile Richards, initially apologized for their content.” Senior Policy Advisor, Maureen Ferguson
