The first major objective for the Republican Congress this year is passing a reconciliation bill that would repeal Obamacare and defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

To that end, pro-life Vice President elect Mike Pence will meet with House Republicans this week. Pence is planning to attend the Republican conference meeting tomorrow morning as Republicans make plans for repealing the pro-abortion government-run healthcare plan.

Leading pro-life organizations want de-funding the nation’s biggest abortion business included in the reconciliation bill. Planned Parenthood kills more than 300,000 unborn babies every single year in abortions and receives over half a billion in taxpayer funding on an annual basis.

Any Bill to defund the abortion company will redirect the money to legitimate healthcare providers that provide actual healthcare for women instead of abortions.

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately

The Hill has more than meeting with Pence and Republicans:

Republicans are reportedly considering delaying when parts of the repeal go into effect in order to buy more time to develop a replacement plan.

The meeting with Pence comes the same day President Obama is scheduled to meet with Democratic lawmakers to discuss their strategy for defending his signature domestic policy achievement.

Republicans are moving forward quickly with plans to repeal ObamaCare. They plan to vote on a budget resolution setting in motion a fast-track process to repeal much of the healthcare law in early January.

But Senate and House Republicans appear split over whether to tackle entitlement reform in an ObamaCare replacement.
