Judiciary chairman won’t vote for Planned Parenthood funding

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) says he won't vote for federal funding of Planned Parenthood, even in the face of a possible shutdown

Asked to predict the odds that the government will shutdown over the issue, Goodlatte tells The Hill's Molly K. Hooper that he's "long been opposed" to funding Planned Parenthood and "will vote against funding Planned Parenthood again,” adding, “Where that leads, I do not know.”


Fresh off a hearing on the recent release of undercover videos showing officials at Planned Parenthood discussing its fetal tissue program, Goodlatte said that Congress will continue the probe into the alleged sale of "baby parts."
