If You Want Planned Parenthood Defunded, Vote for These Pro-Life Candidates

While most of the media attention during the midterm election campaign has been focused on races for the United States Senate, there is a monumental race for control of the House of Representatives.

Whichever party controls the House of Representatives has a decisive impact on whether or not pro-life advocates will have another chance to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business. Under Republican control, the House of Representatives has passed measures to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business on several occasions. The problem has been a lack of votes in the Senate to overcome opposition from pro-abortion Democrats. Ironically, while pro-life candidate appear poised to give the pro-life movement the additional votes it needs to pass a measure under reconciliation in the Senate to defund Planned Parenthood, there is a realistic chance that pro-life lawmakers could lose control of the House and any chance to cut funding.

If Democrats win control of the House and pro-abortion Nancy Pelosi becomes Speaker of the House, you can kiss any chance of defunding Planned Parenthood over the next two years goodbye. Then the pro-life movement would have to pin its defunding hopes on re-electing President Trump, winning back the House and keeping its margin in the Senate during the 202 presidential election campaign. That’s a tall order.

The last time the House voted to defund Planned Parenthood, the House voted 217-212 for the bill — with Republicans voting 217-20 for it and Democrats voting 192-0 against it. The bill would close the largest pipeline for federal funding of Planned Parenthood, Medicaid, and it applies as well to the CHIP and the Title V and Title XX block grant programs.

Here is the list of lawmakers who voted yes to support the bill to defund Planned Parenthood. If you want the nation’s biggest abortion business defunded and your tax dollars protected from going to it, these are the candidates you need to support next Tuesday:
