The U.S. House of Representatives voted today to scrap all federal funding for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, which was responsible for the deaths of over 320,000 unborn babies last year alone.
The final tally on the vote was a resounding 240-185, with 10 Democrats joining all but 7 Republicans in favor of defunding the Wal-Mart of the Abortion Industry.
League staffer Matt Yonke wrote earlier this week about how Planned Parenthood is against the ropes and is pulling out all the stops in a desperate attempt to save face — not to mention the one third of their annual budget that comes from your tax dollars.
Just minutes after the House vote, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards wasted no time in ramping up the breathless demagoguery, sending out an e-mail to their supporters, calling the vote “the most dangerous assault on women’s health in our history” — and, what’s more, “cruel,” “unconscionable,” and “unthinkable.”
This from the president of the organization whose employees have repeatedly shown a willingness to aid and abet child sex trafficking.
And this from the president of the organization that is responsible for ending the lives of over 320,000 children every year in a most “cruel, unconscionable, unthinkable” manner.
And she expects to be taken seriously?
