Washington, D.C.: With just weeks left until Democrats take control of the House, Phyllis Schlafly Eagles encourages Congress to act quickly to fully defund Planned Parenthood. This is a campaign promise from many conservatives that should be fulfilled now more than ever. It has been three years since the Center for Medical Progress’s investigation publicly revealed Planned Parenthood’s disgusting sale of aborted baby parts. Just in August, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) attempted to strip Planned Parenthood of all federal funding but unfortunately that amendment failed.
“For too long, the federal government has funded the inhumane killing of unborn children with our taxpayer dollars,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “We reject the false notion that Planned Parenthood provides a host of women’s services, and recognize that, in reality, their largest source of income and services performed is abortion on demand. House Speaker Paul Ryan must take action nowthrough his Article I authority and put an end to this atrocity once and for all.”
Phyllis Schlafly Eagles works to defend the pro-life plank in the Republican platform and advance pro-life legislation such as the Heartbeat Bill. These efforts will continue until all life, born and pre-born, is protected.
