Rep. Pence Calls on Gov't to Defund Planned Parenthood in House Speech

Video

"a scandal to every American"

Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) has seen the recent undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood coaching a fake pimp on how to bypass abortion laws -- and they worry him. In a speech on the House floor Tuesday, Pence called on the government to "deny" all federal funding for the pro-abortion group, adding that the videos should be a "scandal to all Americans," and calling on members to vote for his bill that would do just that:

Transcript via Pence's website:

The time has come to deny all federal funding to Planned Parenthood of America. I've authored the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act, which would deny Title X funds to Planned Parenthood or any other abortion provider and Congress must act and act now to move this important legislation. Pro-life Americans and all Americans should not be forced to subsidize America's largest abortion provider or continue to provide federal taxpayer dollars to Title X clinics that engage in this abhorrent behavior.
