With Planned Parenthood in the Crosshairs, Will GOP Fire?

Planned Parenthood Millions Served

The scandal over three salacious videos purportedly showing Planned Parenthood officials bartering over tissue from aborted fetuses is about to get real on Capitol Hill. The Senate is scheduled to vote on a bill to strip the organization of its federal funding – PP gets roughly $500 million and 40 percent of its revenue from government dollars, according to its most recent annual report – before lawmakers bolt out of town for their long summer break. The fiscal punishment is the latest front in the so-called culture wars, and Republicans see it as a much-needed victory against abortion, especially given an embarrassing face-plant they had back in the winter. Yet terminated pregnancies, nationally, make up only about 3 percent of services offered by Planned Parenthood’s affiliated medical centers, according to the report; most of what they do is provide health screenings, tests for breast and cervical cancer, treatment for sexually transmitted diseases and contraception – a service which kind of helps prevent the need for abortions in the first place.

  1. I question whether or not they are really Christians.
    If they were, there would be no question as to whether or not they would defund this organization.
    The scandal is not about Planned Parenthood alone.
    It is whether good Christians in churches everywhere in this country are electing a bunch of hypocrites or not.
    Trump has their number. He claims they are bought and paid for by wealthy people who contribute to their campaigns.
    And the devil obviously is watching them squirm.
    The real agenda here is whether they belong to the Christian Republican Party or what they actually belong to?
    Because certain things are over both parties and both parties vote in accordance to the way they are told to vote.
    Planned Parenthood may be one of those issues where they are instructed to vote for funding regardless.
    How else do we explain the Speaker of the House voting for funding Planned Parenthood?
    He is a Republican. I thought Republicans everywhere were against abortion until recently.
    You will know them by their fruits.
    IF the Democrat Party has shown itself to betray labor.
    IF the Republican Party has shown itself to betray the roots by which it stands — Christianity.
    Then both parties have betrayed the people they represent.
    With laws discouraging other parties from getting elected throughout the states, I really do not see a solution to the current problem of betrayal by both parties.
    There has to be a way to dump both parties and put new blood in that Congress. Right now I do not see it happening.
