On Roe Vs. Wade Anniversary Rep. Pence Introduces Legislation To Strip Planned Parenthood Of Funding


U.S. Congressman Mike Pence gave the following speech from the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives today, on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Congressman Pence also will speak to thousands of pro-life Americans at the March for Life later today.


Today millions of Americans�from the National Mall to prayer services in small town churches�will mark the sad 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the worst Supreme Court decision since Dred Scott.


�As most Americans know, it is simply morally wrong to end an unborn human life by abortion. But it is also morally wrong to take the taxpayer dollars of millions of pro-life Americans and use them to promote abortion at home or abroad.


�Many Americans fail to recognize the largest abortion provider in America is also the largest recipient of federal taxpayer dollars through Title X�this should not be.


�Yesterday, with more than 60 cosponsors, I re-introduced the �Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act,� a bill that would deny any federal funding to Planned Parenthood of America.


�On this dark anniversary, let us rededicate ourselves to protecting the unborn and to protecting taxpayers on matters of conscience.�



The arguments liberals always toss out in favor of public funding for Planned Parenthood is that the organization provides other female health services aside from abortions. And while thats true, abortions are the reason why the organization exists.


But perhaps the best argument against public funding for Planned Parenthood is that the organization doesnt seem to need it. According to the groups last annual report should the organization taking in approximately $1 billion in revenue, and turning a $112 million profit. Whether youre for abortion or against, simply from the standpoint of fiscal responsibility it seems like were giving money to an organization that doesnt need it.

2. Still pandering to the religious right
That is so out of vogue these days.

I really wish this guy wasn't from my state.

4. How did Pence vote on SCHIP?
On invading Iraq?

I am sick to death of these anti-choice assholes who are not 'pro-life' when it comes to taking care of people who are already born.

7. Dear Rep. Pence
Until and unless you feel strongly enough about abortion to become proactive in preventing it by cutting your dick off, I will not feel compelled to listen to a word of rubbish from you regarding my body.

And maybe not even then, but it will catch my attention.

8. If it makes it to Executive
we get to watch Obama veto his first bill. The first time is always special.

9. With both houses of Congress in our hands? Unlikely!
Then again, they could pass it just so President Obama could repudiate it with his veto pen.
