The House of Representatives Friday passed a measure to end federal funding for abortion provider Planned Parenthood a day after Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., brought the chamber to stunned silence after describing her own personal experience with abortion.
Friday afternoon, the House passed the amendment by a vote of 240-185. The vote was generally along party lines, with all but seven Republicans voting for the cut, and 10 Democrats voting in favor. One Republican voted present.
The House must still vote for final passage on the underlying spending bill before the cuts head to the Senate for a possible vote later this month.
Here is the video of Jackie Speier discussing her own abortion:
Eliminating funding for Planned Parenthood is WRONG. However, it's also wrong to assume that all PP does is abortions.
