Senate Leader Mitch McConnell: Defunding Planned Parenthood Is “Exercise in Futility”

On September 1, 2015, the Center for Medical Progress released its latest video – the 9th in its series of videos catching the Planned Parenthood abortion business selling aborted baby body parts.

Their ninth video caught a Planned Parenthood medical director discussing how the abortion company sells fully intact aborted babies.

The liberal media has been working overtime to hide this gruesome story from the American public. They have to. It is so utterly grotesque and barbaric. When conservatives compare what Planned Parenthood is doing to Nazi laboratory experiments, they are not exaggerating. Planned Parenthood is butchering babies for body parts. It is like watching a horror movie in real life.


But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will not defund Planned Parenthood. The organization receives $500 million in taxpayer dollars. McConnell believes this is about right.

This week Mitch McConnell told reporters defunding Planned Parenthood is an “exercise in futility.”
NewsMax reported:

Linking the defunding of Planned Parenthood to a government funding bill is “an exercise in futility,” according to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The Kentucky Republican lawmaker, in an interview with Politico Friday, says he’ll support instead a plan to fund the government into December with no conditions.

“It’s an exercise in futility,” McConnell says of the Planned Parenthood defunding effort. “I’m anxious to defund Planned Parenthood” but “the honest answer of that is that’s not going to happen until you have a president who has a similar view.”

“It’s better to be honest with the American people and say, ‘That won’t get it done.'”

According to Politico, McConnell favors a strategy that will include a short-term funding bill to buy time to negotiate a longer-term spending measure – and separately, a vote this month to federally ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

GOP lawmakers have called for the defunding of Planned Parenthood in the wake of hidden-camera videos showing officials brokering the distribution of fetal tissue to medical research.
