Pro-life Coalition Urges Use of Reconciliation to Defund Planned Parenthood

Susan B. Anthony List is spearheading a coalition letter signed by more than 35 national and state pro-life leaders urging Congress to defund Planned Parenthood through reconciliation. The letter, which was sent this morning, reads in part:

“…Over one million abortions are performed annually in the United States, with nearly 330,000 occurring in Planned Parenthood facilities, all the way up to 24 weeks of pregnancy, past the time when recent studies show that a substantial percentage of these children can be saved if treated with the best techniques of modern perinatal medicine. Regardless of whether Americans identify as pro-life or pro-choice, we should all be able to agree that taxpayer dollars should not be subsidizing an already cash-flush industry.

Top Abortion Lobby Officials Feared Backlash if Fetal Tissue Sale Became Public

Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) President Marjorie Dannenfelser responded, saying:

“This latest undercover footage is further evidence that Planned Parenthood profits from the illegal harvest and sale of the body parts of aborted children. Senior abortion industry officials feared the New York Times headlines if these facts were to be exposed, and now they have been. Taxpayer dollars should not be going to an organization whose abortionists strategically ‘crush,’ and use ‘less crunchy’ means to turn a profit from the broken bodies of aborted children.

Sanger’s Legacy is one of Hurt, Division, and Death

Sanger’s legacy is one of hurt, division, and death. An untold number of boys and girls have lost their lives at the hands of Planned Parenthood abortionists throughout the last half century. In the last three years alone, nearly one million American boys and girls have died brutal deaths in Planned Parenthood facilities and that many mothers wounded.
