Planned Parenthood in PA receives $9 million in state taxpayer dollars each year. In addition this is matched by a 3-1 federal matching grant! In mid-November draft language of the Fiscal Code in both the State House and State Senate contained Priorities language which would have restricted the flow of state tax dollars to Planned Parenthood. Governor Wolf said it was a “non-starter” and the language was stripped from both versions. On January 12, the State House passed the Fiscal Code without Priorities language. It now sits in the Senate Rules Committee.
As conscientious parents, the Ferrises wanted to know what treatments their daughter was receiving. But when the Ferrises continued to question whether certain treatments were actually necessary for their daughter, the hospital called social services.
The social services investigator refused to tell Jodi the allegations of the investigation but insisted that she sign a safety plan. When Jodi asked to wait until her husband returned from checking on the rest of their children before signing, the social worker called the police. Without a court order, the Ferrises’ daughter was taken into emergency custody, and the police and hospital security escorted the Ferrises out of the hospital. The next day a judge returned the newborn to her parents.
The US House will be voting on a Senate-passed bill that will repeal major portions of Obamacare as well as defund Planned Parenthood. This bill is stronger than the bill the House passed in the fall.
Americans are tired of funding Planned Parenthood and having to pay for health insurance policies that cover abortion and contraception. The Senate has an opportunity to end it.
Ninety-one Republicans joined all the Democrats in the House to pass a bill to fund the US government and Planned Parenthood until December 11th. How’d PA Congressmen do?
That measure would die in the Senate, which in the meantime would send the House a “clean CR.” The plan, as Cole understands it, would have the House pass that “clean” stopgap close to the government shutdown deadline.
So . . . is there a real effort to defund Planned Parenthood for one year as an investigation into the role the abortion provider has played in the sale of body parts from aborted babies or is this all just a game being played so our Reps and Senators can say, “Well, we tried to defund Planned Parenthood, but . . . . Oh, and make sure you vote for us because we tried. ”
The US Senate is poised to vote on HR 36 – the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The primary sponsor of the bill is Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ). It passed in the house on May 13 by a vote of 242-184.
Planned Parenthood receives half a billion dollars — 41% of its annual budget — from our federal tax dollars. Ten videos have helped expose its participation in the sale of body parts from aborted babies.
On Friday the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) reported they had found no evidence that Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in PA were involved in buying or selling fetal tissue – a euphemism for aborted babies’ hearts, brains, kidneys, livers, intact bodies, etc . The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide pro-life group, notes that this same department, along with the Department of State, repeatedly chose to do nothing despite being faced with evidence of wrongdoing at the Gosnell abortion clinic in Philadelphia.
The Center for Medical Progress has now released seven undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s sale of baby body parts. The mainstream media has tried very hard to ignore this story, but it hasn’t gone away. How much coverage did your local newspaper give to this story? Perhaps a letter to the editor would help expose the story!
