Late last week, in the wake of undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s active trafficking in fetal remains, the U.S. House voted to defund the abortion giant. By a vote of 241-187, the House passed H.R. 3134, which would eliminate $255M in federal funding for the organization for one year. The House also voted to approve H.R. 3504, which would increase criminal penalties for killing a child born alive after an attempted abortion, by a vote of 248-177.
Yesterday, however, the Senate rejected H.R. 3134, the Planned Parenthood defunding bill, by a vote of 47-52.
