GOP Introduces Legislation to Defund Planned Parenthood

posted on July 29, 2015

POLITICO’s John Bresnahan and Anna Palmer report that Senate Republicans “have introduced legislation to cut off all federal funds to Planned Parenthood, the abortion rights group at the center of a political firestorm over alleged fetal tissue sales.” The bill, which should be voted on next week, would take approximately $540 million in funding from Planned Parenthood. According to a statement from Senate Republicans, “Funds no longer available to Planned Parenthood will continue to be offered to other eligible entities to provide such women’s health care services.”
