GOP Congress Funds Planned Parenthood

Washington Moments ago, the House passed a spending bill that will fund the government’s discretionary operations until December 11, 2015.  That bill will also continue taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood, an organization that will commit 65,000 abortions between now and December 11.  Heritage Action released the following statement from communications director Dan Holler:

“Republican Party leaders claim there is a moral obligation to stop sending taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood, but when given the opportunity to act, they wilted. If the new leadership team wants to gain the trust of conservatives outside Washington, they will need to put forward a plan to win in December.  Perpetuating the status quo is unacceptable.”
