House Votes To Block Planned Parenthood Funding But There Is A Catch

The House of Representatives met on Friday and voted in favor of defunding Planned Parenthood.  While it is about time that elected officials stood for the dignity and sanctity of every unborn child, this vote comes with a catch.

According to Fox news, the bill only halts federal funding for Planned Parenthood for one year.  A second bill voted upon calls for criminal penalties to be imposed upon any doctor that does not try to save the life of baby born alive during an abortion.  That bill also passed.

While this is a step in the right direction, it is not nearly enough for the Republican controlled House to be asking for.  Republicans control the House and the Senate but have made a habit of deferring to the Democrats. 

These two meager bills still need to pass through the Senate and even if they pass through, Obama has made it clear that he plans to veto any bill that defunds Planned Parenthood.

Obama’s support for abortion and his blatant backing of Planned Parenthood is no surprise considering that he is the top recipient of campaign contributions from the abortion provider, according to the Blaze.

The voting was as split along party lines as expected with the Republicans standing for life and the Democrats standing for choice.  The only mild surprise is that the Democrats also overwhelmingly voted against the bill that criminalizes the act of not saving the life of a child who has been born alive. 

If we as a country can’t even unanimously stand up for the life of a child that is born alive, what does that say about us?
