The head of the Planned Parenthood abortion business is taking it to pro-life Speaker Paul Ryan. She threatened the speaker about his pledge to defund the abortion company saying that it will put up a huge fight in response.

Last week, House Speaker Paul Ryan said upcoming legislation to repeal the Obamacare health care law would cut off taxpayer money to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s biggest abortion company.

“The Planned Parenthood legislation would be in our reconciliation bill,” Ryan said.

In a recent segment on Christiane Amanpour’s CNN show, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards responded and, as she always does, attempted to turn the abortion corporation into a place for legitimate health care:

“It’s really a problem when politicians put their politics ahead of women’s health care in America,” Richards said in the segment, later adding: “The access to not only to Planned Parenthood services but to women’s health care is very much at risk.”

“Women in this country are absolutely not going without a fight and the majority is with us,” she said.

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

Last week, the U.S. Senate took the first step in paving the way for a vote on defunding the Planned Parenthood abortion corporation.

The Senate approved on a virtual party-line vote a budget resolution bill. This repeal resolution is the first step in the process to re-direct Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding to legitimate health care entities and repeal Obamacare using the budget reconciliation procedure.

President-elect Donald Trump has promised to sign a bill that would defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

During the campaign, Trump said “I am committed to defunding Planned Parenthood as long as they continue to perform abortions and reallocating their funding to community health centers that provide comprehensive health care for women.”

Earlier in the campaign, Trump specifically promised he would sign a bill as president to de-fund Planned Parenthood. In an interview with David Brody of CBN, Trump made that promise:

David Brody: “As a President Trump, if a bill came to your desk that would defund Planned Parenthood you would support that, you would sign that?”

Donald Trump: “Yes, because as long as they do the abortion I am not for funding Planned Parenthood… As long as they’re involved with abortion, as far as I’m concerned forget it, I wouldn’t fund them regardless. I would defund Planned Parenthood because of their view and the fact of their work on abortion…. I am for defunding Planned Parenthood as long as they are involved with abortion.”
