Senate Rejects Bill Defunding Planned Parenthood
The democrats in the US Senate today rejected a bill that would have de-funded Planned Parenthood.
It’s not like there’s a fiscal crisis or anything.
Life Site News reported:
In a 44-56 vote, the U.S. Senate has voted against a budget bill crafted by House Republicans that would have eliminated federal funding of Planned Parenthood.
The Democrat-led Senate also failed to pass its own budget bill, which contained much fewer spending cuts and maintained the abortion giant’s funding.
The vote marks the first stage of what promises to be a drawn-out battle between two opposite visions for the 2011 fiscal year, as well as between pro-life and pro-abortion forces fiercely gunning for or against the amendment de-funding Planned Parenthood.
