Republican Senate leader McConnell saves Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood, whose leaders were recently exposed on video selling aborted baby parts, will continue to be Federally-funded by millions of Christians in the South thanks to US Senate leader Mitch McConnell.

HARD QUESTIONS

The Republican leader’s betrayal of the party’s White Southern Christian base raises some serious questions. Is it moral for the party to campaign on opposition to abortion and then save Planned Parenthood to let off a couple of GOP senators from liberal, non-Southern States? How can it be right to force Christians to pay for the clinical murder of unborn children? And to what degree is McConnell a foe of basic Christian principles and the Southern people?

ANTI-SOUTHERN SENATOR

Despite his Southern roots, McConnell, who is married to an Asian woman, recently called for the removal of Confederate President Jefferson Davis’ statue from the Kentucky capital. The deracinated senator echoed the call of Black Leftists in removing the statue of the Southern conservative icon.

Note: The GOP has a lot of experience stabbing its voters in the back.

  1. The GOP, like the Democrats, and the Federal Government, is merely an instrument of the Northern People’s will. And like the other two, it pretends to universal appeal outside the traditional North.

    Defunding Planned Parenthood
    Last week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he will “fast track” legislation to eliminate federal funding of Planned Parenthood. As Senator McConnell explained:

    “As Senate Majority Leader, I asked a group of Republican senators, including Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst and Kentucky’s own Rand Paul, to draft legislation to protect women’s health services by redirecting Planned Parenthood’s federal funds to other women’s health organizations that we know are focused exclusively on helping women.”
    Prohibiting federal funding of Planned Parenthood (S 1881)
    Sponsor: Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) “In addition to defunding Planned Parenthood, this legislation ensures the preservation of Federal funding for women’s health services including relevant diagnostic laboratory and radiology services, well-child care, prenatal and postpartum care, immunization, family planning services including contraception, sexually transmitted disease testing, cervical and breast cancer screenings, and referrals,” according to the bill sponsors. “Funds no longer available to Planned Parenthood will continue to be offered to other eligible entities to provide such women’s health care services.”
    From our Hill Sources: Under the Hyde Amendment, Planned Parenthood is banned from using federal funding for abortion services.
    Members of Congress are feeling a sense of urgency to vote on a bill prohibiting federal funding of Planned Parenthood after video released by the Center for Medical Progress that reportedly described Planned Parenthood’s role in the harvesting of fetal tissue. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is making inquiries to Planned Parenthood and the US Attorney General. (Read the letters.)
    18 House Republicans are pledging to oppose any measure to fund the government if it continues to fund Planned Parenthood.
    In a letter to House leadership, 18 Republican Representatives pledged that they “cannot and will not support any funding resolution—an appropriations bill, an omnibus package, a continuing resolution, or otherwise—that contains any funding for Planned Parenthood, including mandatory funding streams.” Their pledge has raised concerns about a possible government shutdown as the fiscal year ends on September 31.

    The letter was signed by Reps. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC), Jim Jordan (R-OH), John Fleming (R-LA), Raul Labrador (R-ID), Matt Salmon (R-AZ) Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), Jeff Duncan (R-SC) Thomas Massie (R-KY), Trey Gowdy (R-SC), Walter Jones (R-NC), Curt Clawson (R-FL), Jim Bridenstine (R-OK), Keith Rothfus (R-PA), Randy Weber (R-TX), Scott Perry (R-NJ), Steven Pearce (R-NM), Trent Franks (R-AZ) and Louie Gohmert (R-TX).

    A bill prohibiting federal funding of Planned Parenthood has been introduced in the House, but has yet to receive a vote:

    Defund Planned Parenthood Act (HR 3134)
    Sponsor: Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) “Would place an immediate moratorium on all federal funding of Planned Parenthood for the span of one year while Congress conducts a full investigation into the organization’s activities,” according to the bill sponsor. (Read bill text)
    Last week, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced a bill prohibiting federal funding of Planned Parenthood, but it did not redirect those funds to other women’s health programs:

    Prohibiting federal funding of Planned Parenthood (S 1861)
    Sponsor: Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) “Would eliminate nearly $500 million of taxpayer funding each year to Planned Parenthood,” according to the bill sponsor. (Read bill text)

    • Yes, but this was offered because he knew it wouldn’t pass. It needs 60 votes, which isn’t there. As an amendment it just needed 50 votes and would have passed. McConnell is a slick enemy.

  3. Don’t worry I’m sure the GOP will still get the “Christian Conservatives” support on election day. People with no common sense or since of survival. Thank God for Christian Southerners who support Secession!

  4. Im amendments are voted on, those slots are opened up and the potential for more amendments exists,” he wrote in an email. He declined to say whether McConnell supported bringing the Planned Parenthood amendments to a vote.
