Congressional Republicans are moving to pull millions in taxpayer funding from Planned Parenthood in the wake of investigative videos showing workers discussing the sale of baby organs.
Rep. Diane Black (R., Tenn.) introduced the Defund Planned Parenthood Act on Tuesday night just hours after a second undercover video was released showing a Planned Parenthood official pricing out baby organs. The bill would strip the nation’s largest abortionist of taxpayer dollars.
Planned Parenthood, which conducts about 300,000 abortions, has collected about $200 million from taxpayers since 2012, including about $30 million in grants in 2015.
“Over the last week, we’ve seen multiple videos showing its employees brazenly discussing the harvesting of aborted babies’ tissue and organs. But the truth is, Planned Parenthood’s culture of depravity runs much deeper than a couple of videos,” Black said. “The one-sided relationship between Planned Parenthood’s ever-growing bank account and American taxpayers must be severed.”
