Historic Vote in US Senate to Defund Planned Parenthood, Obamacare
Yesterday, the U.S Senate successfully voted to strip Planned Parenthood's federal funding, sending it instead to comprehensive health care centers that serve low-income women and their families. Despite the rhetoric about attacks on women's health, this bill increases funding to community and federally qualified health centers, which in New Mexico outnumber Planned Parenthoods 6 to 165-- serving a far greater number of women in need.
Senator James Lankford (R-OK), who voted in favor of defunding Planned Parenthood stated:
As expected, NM's pro-abortion US Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich who are indebted to the abortion industry's campaign donations, voted against the measure, which also repeals Obamacare. Most likely, pro-abortion President Obama will undoubtedly veto the bill. Neither the House nor the Senate have enough pro-life votes to override a veto, but this is still a historic moment for our country.
"This is a tremendous and historic victory for the pro-life movement! Getting a defunding bill to the president's desk will keep the spotlight on Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry's butchery of the unborn and unscrupulous practice of trafficking their precious body parts like hearts, lungs, livers, and brains. This will also educate many Americans on the need to elect a pro-life president and leaders. We will continue to raise these issues over and over again until we see change, and NMAFL will make sure you stay informed on how our leaders respond.
