Republicans finally got to take a step to defund Planned Parenthood. VP Mike Pence cast the tie breaker.
"Republican legislation letting states deny federal family planning money to Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers squeezed narrowly through the Senate Thursday..."
I imagine that Pence and the Reps are proud of themselves for reducing abortions, but of course, exactly the opposite will happen - abortions will rise, as will disease and health issues amongst the women depending on family planning and health services.
Without family planning and contraceptive care and assistance there will be more pregnancies and thus more abortions of unwanted pregnancies.
Ideology is a strange thing, blocking out any information that contradicts the dogma. The Reps hurt poor women today. Not happy.
