Over the past several weeks, videos released by The Center for Medical Progress have shown top doctors of Planned Parenthood Federation of America casually discussing the harvesting and trafficking of body parts from unborn children killed by abortion.
MRL shares in the feelings of outrage and horror that must be impacting every American who has any regard for decency, justice and a respect for life. Enough is enough. It’s time to end public funding of this abortion giant!
The U.S. Senate will vote as early as Monday, August 3, on a bill – strongly backed by National Right to Life – that would cut off all federal funds to the Planned Parenthood Federation of America and all of its affiliates.
MO Senator Roy Blunt is one of the many lawmakers involved in recent efforts to de-fund Planned Parenthood. Last week, he signed a letter to Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Burwell calling for her cooperation in a full investigation into the practices of the organization.
And this week he helped introduce Senate bill 1881 to fully de-fund Planned Parenthood.
Upon introduction of the legislation, Senator Blunt said, “The video footage of Planned Parenthood executives continues to raise deeply troubling questions, and, like most Americans, I am appalled by the disturbing actions these videos describe,” said Senator Blunt. “It is clear that Planned Parenthood is not the right place for any federal dollars. We will ensure every dollar taken away from Planned Parenthood will go toward women’s health care through our community health centers and other providers.”
