GOP plans to defund Planned Parenthood along with Obamacare repeal

GOP plans to defund Planned Parenthood along with Obamacare repeal”

"That question we don't know the answer to, but the legislating on Obamacare will happen this year".

But Republicans will only need a simple majority of the House and Senate for the legislation to pass - which could easily transpire given the GOP holds both chambers of Congress.

President Obama vetoed a reconciliation bill in 2015 that included language to kill Planned Parenthood funding. Senate Democrats blocked the bill in August, preventing it from coming to a vote. The nonprofit devoted to providing reproductive health services estimated that it may lose up to 40 percent of its funding if such a bill becomes law, according to the Washington Post. In the meantime, donate to Planned Parenthood here.

Pro-life groups hailed Ryan's decision.

Nearly 5,000 migrants drowned in those seas in 2016, making it the deadliest year there since records have been kept. In early December more than 400 sub-Saharan African migrants managed to force their way over the Ceuta border fence.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, praised Ryan's remarks in a statement. Many community health centers have access to such machines.

When asked if he believed the GOP alternative would insure as many people as Obamacare, Ryan said he didn't want to get ahead of the committee process.

House Speaker Paul Ryan takes a refreshing sip of water before announcing when and how he will be waging war on women.

Ryan's announcement came as new polls were released showing that a majority of voters in 2018 battleground states oppose taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood. Democrats are gearing up to defend against GOP attempts to attack the group. "Our Republican colleagues will own that, especially since they don't have anything to replace it with", said Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Boca Raton, after the meeting with Obama.

Six-year-old JonBenet was found in the wine cellar of the Ramsey's Boulder, Colorado home on Christmas in 1996. She was found strangled with her wrists tied above her head and a garrote embedded in her neck.

Aware they have no chance of quickly agreeing on replacement legislation, Republicans plan to delay when their repeal would actually take effect.

Steven Aden, senior counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), said of the panel's findings on Planned Parenthood, "Congress should end taxpayer subsidies of an abortion business that has enjoyed almost a billion dollars in profits over the last decade while taking more than $4 billion from American taxpayers".

"So that could impact about 15 percent of our patients in ME", she says.

Planned Parenthood isn't allowed to use federal funds for abortions, but can use it to pay for other health services like birth control. The secretly recorded videos appeared to show various executives of the country's No. 1 abortion provider discussing their sale of fetal parts, as well as their willingness to manipulate the lethal procedure to preserve organs for sale and use.
