  • "Before he left office, Obama pushed through an HHS regulation that essentially forces states to give Planned Parenthood Title X funding....Rep. Diane Black, R-TN, introduced H.J. Res. 43 to overturn what pro-life groups call the Obama administration's 'parting gift' to Planned Parenthood....'While this is merely taking back the small parting gift that President Obama left Planned Parenthood, the real prize is getting the Reconciliation bill passed by both Houses and signed by President Trump,' said Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America. "We are hopeful this bill is a step towards ultimately defunding the nation's abortion giant" (U.S. House votes to overturn Obama regulation forcing states to fund Planned Parenthood, Life SiteNews, 2/16/17).
    • From Pennsylvania, kudos to Barletta, Costello, Fitzpatrick, Kelly, Marino, Meehan, Murphy, Perry, Rothfus, Smucker, Shuster, and Thompson.  Shame on  Brady, Boyle, Cartwright, Dent, Doyle, and Evans (cf, http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2017/roll099.xml)
  • "Without question, Planned Parenthood provides some morally unobjectionable health services to women. However, this statement is not unlike saying that a man who beats his wife sometimes gives her flowers....When individuals, particularly those in political office, gloss over or ignore the core issue of whether or not taxpayers should be funding the world’s largest abortion business by citing Planned Parenthood’s other services, they are engaging in obfuscation that is, at best, confused and, at worst, dishonest.  And when such individuals publicly hold themselves out to be Catholic, their local bishop has a responsibility to offer correction, both for the well-being of the individuals’ souls and to avoid scandal among the Catholic faithful" (Most Rev. Edward Scharfenberger, 2/13/17).
