Pro-Life Group: If Rand Paul Doesn’t Vote to DeFund Planned Parenthood, He’s “on the Same Side”

A pro-life student organization is not happy that Senator Rand Paul has announced his opposition to the Graham-Cassidy Healthcare bill that would repeal portions of Obamacare and defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

The Kentucky senator says he opposes the legislation because it does not fully repeal Obamacare. However. leading pro-life groups are supporting the bill because it represents the only legitimate chance to pass a measure through Congress that would defund the nation’s biggest abortion company.

Today, Students for Life of America informed LifeNews that it will consider Rand Paul to be “on the same side” as Planned Parenthood if he does not vote for the legislation.

Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America told LifeNews: “We are calling on Senator Rand Paul to either support a pro-life health care reform bill, like Graham-Cassidy, or propose one that can pass now.

Hawkins continued, “The disastrous status quo that is Obamacare is harming families, using our taxpayer dollars to fund abortion, and line the pockets of Planned Parenthood’s billion dollar abortion industry. Voting against Graham-Cassidy would put Senator Paul on the same side as the abortion Goliath, Planned Parenthood.”

The pro-life student leader said, “Planned Parenthood has lied to the American public, committed fraud with taxpayer dollars, and has been proven to sell the body parts of babies they abort for profit. Yet, Congress continually fails to defund Planned Parenthood. The pro-life generation is sick of being told to wait until another election season has passed. We are expecting Congress to uphold their promises and stop subsidizing America’s largest abortion vendor.”

Hawkins says her group will be visiting Senator Rand Paul’s instate office and call on him to vote yes for Graham-Cassidy. Today, pro-life students visit Senator Rand Paul’s Kentucky office and call on him to vote for the bill as part of a national tour through the states of strategically chosen U.S. Senators and more than 90 college campuses. . . . .
