Congressman Takes On Planned Parenthood

In the past two years Planned Parenthood has received $350 million in taxpayer funding.

That taxpayer support goes to the nonprofit organization which reports a significant profit each year and annual revenues in excess of $1 Billion dollars.

Now a pro-life Congressman is attempting to de-fund Planned Parenthood.

Mike Pence, R-Indiana, has drafted an amendment to de-fund Planned Parenthood. He has attached it to a Department of Health and Human Services funding bill, that in part, throws federal tax dollars toward Planned Parenthood.

ONENEWSNOW reports that abortions are on the rise again and about 1 in 5 are preformed in Planned Parenthood clinics.

The "Susan B. Anthony List" organization is heading up an effort to contact members of the House of Representatives and urge them to vote for the Mike Pence amendment to de-fund Planned Parenthood. You may go the Anthony website or you may click on this website for contact information for communicating with your representative.
