Hallelujah! House Votes to Defund Planned Parenthood

In a momentous vote today, the House of Representatives voted to cut off federal funds to Planned Parenthood.  Lifesite News reports that the vote was 248-185 in favor of Congressman Mike Pence's amendment to the 2011 Federal Spending bill.  

One of the great defenders of life in Congress, Rep. Chris Smith said:

"Despite the best and slickest market branding money can buy, the stubborn fact remains that Planned Parenthood clinics are among the most dangerous places on earth for a child.  Not only does Planned Parenthood vigorously lobby and litigate against parental notification and consent laws—thus enabling secret abortions for very, very young girls—but now we‘ve learned from recent undercover taped investigations at several of its clinics ... that Planned Parenthood employees were found to be more than eager to assist people posing as sex traffickers to procure abortions for underage girls.”

Of course the folks at Planned Parenthood and NARAL are foaming at the mouth over the impending cut off of funding.  What they seem to be missing is that the youth of the nation along with those who are suffering the effects of an abortion are rising up to insist on the protection of life.  It certainly seems that the tide is beginning to turn.  Of course, we need to keep up the prayers.  The evil one has his claws in this issue and he won't go down without a fight.
