How Republicans Will Hurt America – ‘GOP renews funding fight against Planned Parenthood’

‘More than 80 House Republicans are again seeking to block federal funding for abortion providers like Planned Parenthood, saying they want to defund “the big abortion industry.”

“Planned Parenthood and organizations like it that profit off the destruction of innocent life do not deserve one more dime from American taxpayers,” Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) wrote in a release Thursday after reintroducing the bill’.

‘Black, who spent 40 years as a nurse, said her legislation would “clarify the original intent and spirit of the law” that prevents federal dollars from being used in abortions’.

‘The bill targets a funding program called Title X family planning grants, which give money for services ranging from infertility counseling to STD testing. Planned Parenthood is the country’s largest recipient of the grants’.

  • Providers are already prohibited from using federal money to fund abortions, but the GOP lawmakers argue that the rules should be more strict’.

‘Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.), co-chairman of the Pro-Life Caucus, said the federal government should not be supporting Planned Parenthood at all, describing the nonprofit as “Child Abuse, Incorporated.”

“The federal government should not be subsidizing the largest abortion chain in America, Planned Parenthood,” Smith said’.

‘Abortions make up about 3 percent of all Planned Parenthood’s services, according to the group’s 2013 yearly report. About 40 percent of its funding comes from government sources, which also includes Medicaid’.
