Pro-Lifers on Congress' Planned Parenthood Funding: 'Incredibly Disappointing,' 'Beyond Frustrating,' 'Need to Defund'

Catholic News Service - Washington, DC


( -- Some pro-life advocates said they were disappointed with the short-term spending bill passed by Congress and signed by President Doanld Trump on Friday, which continues funding for Planned Parenthood. They also expressed frustration with the pending $1 trillion spending package expected to pass this week and keep the government funded through fiscal year 2017 and which also would maintain funding for the abortion provider.

However, the pro-life supporters were optimistic for the long-term and Alveda King, director of Civil Rights for the Unborn at Priests for Life, said she believes Trump and Congress are "committed to defunding any efforts to abort human beings in the womb here in America."

"In the big picture and the overall scheme of things, I tend not to dwell on disappointments but continue to push the positive truth and the positive agenda," King, the niece of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., told  "They need to defund Planned Parenthood, that’s the end of the story.”


Asked if she felt betrayed by the proposed budget package and its continued funding of Planned Parenthood,  Alveda King said, “I would not use the word betrayed. I’m not even surprised that political shenanigans continue. I’d be surprised if they did not [continue]."

"But I really just want to urge members of Congress and the president to continue with the promise to defund Planned Parenthood," said King.  "Planned Parenthood must be defunded.  They are America’s largest abortion provider."
