Republicans in Congress plan to defund Planned Parenthood as part of their bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday.
The move would deal a huge blow to the abortion giant, which estimates federal funds account for 40 percent of its total revenue each year. Another 10 percent comes from state and local governments, totaling a whopping sum of $500 million a year
Ryan told reporters:
“Planned Parenthood legislation would be in our reconciliation bill.”
The defunding measure would be included in the fast-track bill aimed at repealing Obamacare. Republicans are laying out an aggressive plan to get the changes through, and plan to use a budget tool called reconciliation to allow the laws to pass by a simple majority vote.
While Planned Parenthood claims abortion is only 3% of what they do and that their priority is “women’s health care.” But does their math add up? This Live Action video explains:
The truth of the matter is, Planned Parenthood is an abortion mill. It exists so that children don’t. And our taxpayer money is funding this evil. As already mentioned, government funding accounts for about 40 percent of Planned Parenthood’s budget. So, it’s encouraging to see that Paul Ryan and other Republicans want to ax that funding once and for all.
