    The Republican-controlled House of Representatives passed on Friday the Defund Planned Parenthood Act, 248-177. The bill strips the women’s health provider of its funding for contraception, pap smears, and testing for sexually-transmitted infections, unless it stops performing abortions.

    President Barack Obama has vowed to veto the bill, setting the stage for a possible government shutdown. Some congressional Republicans have vowed not to vote for any budget that includes funding for the organization.

    “Planned Parenthood can get their money back if they fully commit to what they talk about, women’s healthcare, and stop performing abortions for this year,” said Rep. Diane Black. Her fellow Republican of Tennessee, Rep. Marsha Blackburn, also a vocal supporter of the bill, declared, “If there is reason to investigate, there is reason to withhold taxpayer funding during that time.”

    “These false claims against Planned Parenthood have been widely discredited,” retorted Rep. Kathy Castor, Democrat of Florida. “They’ve edited content out, and they’ve edited false images in.”

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has also weighed in. “The House voting to defund Planned Parenthood is an attack on women’s health – nothing more, nothing less. Republicans should be ashamed,” she tweeted Friday.

    Several House committees are investigating Planned Parenthood after the release of secretly-recorded videos from an anti-abortion group, showing Planned Parenthood employees and current and former employees of a fetal tissue procurement firm. The group behind them says they show Planned Parenthood breaking laws regulating fetal tissue donation for the purpose of medical research – specifically, profiting off the tissue and altering procedures to obtain intact parts – which Planned Parenthood denies. None of the federal funding in question goes to abortion or to fetal tissue donation programs, although the National Institutes of Health does fund research on fetal tissue

    If the government shuts down, does that mean we don't have to pay taxes?

    What is to be expected from these fools? Denying women access to healthcare, contraception, counseling and mental health services, besides being immoral, can only lead to more costy interventions down the road.

    By pandering to the religious right, the Republicans are shooting themselves in the foot and guaranteeing they'll never win the presidential election. No matter how much I like any of their other policies I can't vote for anyone who supports this bullshit.

    So if a clinic performs legal abortions, some of which save a mother's life, the funding for all other woman's healthcare will be stopped?

    It may not be a war on women but it sure is treating them like shit.

    It isn't whether abortions should be legal. It's whether the government should pay for them.

    Why didn't the democrats put an abortion clause in the affordable care act and avoid all this?

    It isn't a coordinated GOP strategy. It is a collective bunch who are thinking only on the next election, and want to keep from getting primary-d out of their solid red district.

    They rather lose the "movement" over the long term than risking their cushy political career.

    Why are they having this fight 12 months before a Presidential election?

    They're going to alienate the moderate voters, and damage the chances for the ultimate GOP candidate.

    Being "right" isn't more important than being pragmatic.
