John McCain Sabotages Senate Bill to Defund Planned Parenthood, No Vote Puts Bill in Jeopardy

John McCain will once again sabotage the Senate bill to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business. The Arizona senator and former presidential candidate angered pro-life Americans earlier this year when he was a no vote on the previous reconciliation Bill to defund the nation’s biggest abortion company.

Now he’s doing it again. McCain will vote no on the latest version of the Planned Parenthood defunding bill, that also reveals portions of Obamacare. . . .

McCain joined two probation Republicans to defeat the Senate bill that would defund Planned Parenthood. Called the skinny Bill to repeal portions of Obamacare, pro-life organizations and Senate Republican leaders hoped the bill would get enough votes to be able to land a repeal and defund measure on President Donald Trump’s desk.

But thanks to Senator John McCain the measure failed. Even though McCain frequently votes pro-life and has voted to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business in the past, he joined pro-abortion Republican Senators Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine along with 48 Democrats to kill the measure.

According to the Washington Examiner, pro-life vice president Mike Pence was working with Senator McCain and the final hours leading up to the vote to no avail.

Last month, the abortion chain Planned Parenthood finally released its annual report.

The report shows increases in abortion numbers and taxpayer funding in 2015, alongside decreases in contraception, breast exams and overall patient numbers.

Planned Parenthood continued to maintain its status as the largest abortion provider in the United States. The abortion group performed 328,348 abortions on unborn babies, 4,349 more than the previous year, according to the report.

At the same time, it saw 2.4 million patients, about 100,000 fewer than the previous year and about 500,000 fewer than five years ago. Contraception services, which the abortion chain touts as its primary service, also dropped from 2.94 million to 2.8 million during the past two years.

Meanwhile, the abortion chain received more taxpayer funding. The report shows Planned Parenthood receiving $554.6 million, up from $553.7 million the previous year. This increase occurred while pro-abortion President Barack Obama was in power. . . . . Read More

Senator McCain says he wants a bi-partisan bill passed- by an absolutely pro- abortion Planned Parenthood Democratic Party. Does not compute.
