Fr. Pavone: 325,000 reasons to defund Planned Parenthood


Priests for Life



NEW YORK – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life,  hailed the Senate’s passage of legislation to transfer Medicaid money from Planned Parenthood to health care clinics that do not perform abortions.  The bill also would repeal key parts of Obamacare.
“It’s an understatement to say that Planned Parenthood has shown itself unworthy of taxpayer support,” said Fr. Pavone.  “The 325,000 lives it destroys every year are 325,000 reasons to redirect taxpayer funds to groups that provide health care without taking innocent lives.”

The Senate voted to approve a measure that would make Planned Parenthood ineligible to receive federal funding from the Medicaid program.  It would also repeal parts of the so-called Affordable Care Act, such as the individual and employer mandates.  Because the Senate amended the House-passed defunding bill, the House must approve it again before sending it to President Obama’s desk.

“When there are legitimate health care providers that actually help women and their babies, it’s a travesty to give one dime to Planned Parenthood,” added Fr. Pavone.  “The Senate is to be commended for standing up for women, their children, and taxpayers who object to subsidizing a billion-dollar abortion business.”
