Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced a motion to defund Planned Parent Hood. This motion is being wrapped up into an Amendment which means if passed will be almost impossible to ever remove as law.
Rand Paul is a Pro-Life warrior who on Friday said the Republican party needs to halt taxpayer funded abortions, and the GOP needs to stick needs to stick to its pro-life values.
“One of the top priorities for a Republican Congress that professes pro-life values on the campaign trail should be to stop taxpayer funding for abortion providers,” said Paul. “This is our chance to turn our words into action, stand up for the sanctity of life, and speak out for the most innocent among us that have no voice.”
Planned Parenthood receives over half a billion dollars in taxpayer dollars. They perform roughly 321,384 abortions a year, according to LifeNews.
The amendment will go nowhere because even if it is voted on Democrats will Filibuster it. For now, the amendment is not being voted on, which the GOP should be ashamed of itself for not at least attempting to vote on the amendment.
