New Budget Plan Keeps Funding for Planned Parenthood

A recent poll conducted Public Policy Polling on behalf of Planned Parenthood revealed that a majority of voters in Republican-held swing districts do not support defunding Planned Parenthood or dismantling Obamacare.

"Planned Parenthood was blocked from continuing to provide abortion services in Waco in 2013 following the enactment of Texas' controversial abortion restriction law, HB 2", the release said.

Liberty Counsel represents Sandra Merritt, the journalist whose courageous undercover work exposed Planned Parenthood's barbaric practices of harvesting organs from babies and selling them to StemExpress and other organ procurement organizations. "Killing is number one for this organization!"

Workers March Across the World for May Day
During the meetings, Singaravelar passed a resolution that the government should declare May Day or Labour Day a national holiday. Hostile trade unions poured water on labour ministry's plan to celebrate the International Labour Day together on Monday.

"The bill reaffirms the Hyde amendment and prohibits federal funding of abortions", Ryan's office asserts. And later, when congressional GOP members threatened to cut all federal funding to Planned Parenthood, Ivanka approached Richards to "start a broader dialogue". Around 79% of Planned Parenthood's patients are at or below 150% of the federal poverty level, so defunding the organization would have a disproportionate impact on poor women. (And, as most people know by now, that same language already has a track record of success, passing Congress in 2015.) What's more, adding that provision as a rider on discretionary spending bills like this one wouldn't affect the mandatory spending programs, which also finance Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood is funded by taxpayers through (discretionary) Title X family planning and health care grants and through (mandatory) Medicaid reimbursements. But the state does not have to renew contracts or sign new ones with the nation's largest abortion provider for "legitimate" reasons on the condition it notifies Planned Parenthood 30 days in advance.

As the bill stands, the abortion giant will receive full funding and continue to do over a third of the abortions committed in America. "If we make it tough enough on Planned Parenthood, perhaps Lubbock or Midland or College Station will be spared from the challenge ahead for our city", he wrote.
