Today, the U.S. Senate Budget Committee unveiled a budget resolution bill. This repeal resolution is the first step in the process to re-direct Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding and repeal Obamacare using the budget reconciliation procedure. The repeal resolution is expected to reach the Senate floor next week, followed by the U.S. House.
Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser offered the following comment:
“We urge Congress to swiftly pass the budget resolution introduced today so they can pass a reconciliation bill that re-directs abortion giant Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding to community health centers. Community health centers provide the same services Planned Parenthood does, but do not perform abortions or harvest fetal body parts. They far outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities by a 20:1 ratio. Re-directing the abortion giant’s taxpayer funding will fulfill a major pro-life commitment made by the President-elect to end Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding as long as they continue to perform abortions.”
