Senate Passes Budget Resolution That’s a Precursor to Defunding Planned Parenthood

. . . Yesterday, the U.S. Senate took the first step in paving the way for a vote on defunding the Planned Parenthood abortion corporation.

The Senate approved on a virtual party-line vote a budget resolution bill. This repeal resolution is the first step in the process to re-direct Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding to legitimate health care entities and repeal Obamacare using the budget reconciliation procedure.

The Senate voted for final passage 51-48 of the 2017 budget resolution (S. Con. Res. 3), which will guide the legislative process to repeal and replace Obamacare as well as defunding the nation’s biggest abortion company. . . .

After the final passage was announced, Sen. David Perdue (R.-Ga.) said he understood that there was more work to do to fix healthcare in America, but it was most important to start.

“Obamacare is collapsing under its own weight,” he said. . . .

Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser told LifeNews.com: “We urge Congress to swiftly pass the budget resolution so they can pass a reconciliation bill that re-directs abortion giant Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding to community health centers.

She added: “Community health centers provide the same services Planned Parenthood does, but do not perform abortions or harvest fetal body parts. They far outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities by a 20:1 ratio. Re-directing the abortion giant’s taxpayer funding will fulfill a major pro-life commitment made by the President-elect to end Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding as long as they continue to perform abortions.” . . .
