Senate Democrats show united support for Planned Parenthood

"If Congress can’t cut off taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood, a willing partner of the exploitation of women and young girls, how can it be serious about cutting spending anywhere else?" SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a statement this week. "The time to end taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood is not next week, or in three weeks, or in a month, it’s now. Ending taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood in both short-term and long-term Continuing Resolution bills is a non-negotiable."

A handful of individual lawmakers have committed to that position.

"We need to stop sending taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood, and we need to defund ObamaCare," Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said in a statement Monday.

And freshman Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kansas) recently told The Hill that the continuing resolution "omits many of the priorities the American people demanded we pass," including the elimination of some EPA regulations, repealing healthcare and defunding Planned Parenthood.
