House Speaker Paul Ryan Promises Bill To Defund Planned Parenthood . . .

Newly re-elected House Speaker Paul Ryan says Republicans will put forth a bill defunding Planned Parenthood for President Trump to sign as it did for President Obama.

At Ryan’s press briefing Thursday, CNS News asked the Speaker if he would submit a bill “that prohibits any federal funds from going to any Planned Parenthood affiliate until Planned Parenthood stops doing abortions.”

Ryan answered: “We’ve already shown what we believe with respect to funding Planned Parenthood. We put a bill on President Obama’s desk in reconciliation. Our position has not changed."

That bill sent to Obama would have defunded Planned Parenthood for one year, rather than permanently. . . .

CNS News reports: “According to its 2014-2015 annual report, Planned Parenthood affiliates performed 323,999 abortions (10/01/13 - 09/30/14) and received $553.7 million in government health services grants and reimbursements for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2015.”

Meanwhile, the liberal Huffington Post reports that private donations to Planned Parenthood are surging as supporters fear a quick ending to federal taxpayer subsidies for the abortion provider. . . . Read More
