After Pope Francis Speech, Obama Threatens Veto Of Planned Parenthood Defunding Bill

President Obama vowed to veto a bill that would defund Planned Parenthood soon after Pope Francis finished up his speech to Congress calling for respect for life in all of its stages.

The statement from the White House asserted that the Senate’s attempt to defund Planned Parenthood would “disproportionately impact low-income individuals,” and demanded a bill that would fund the government free of “ideological provisions that are intended to advance a narrow political agenda.”

Republicans have pushed for a budget that keeps Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion corporation in America, from having access to federal taxpayer funds. The renewed push comes after a series of videos exposed Planned Parenthood for profiting off of fetal tissue and body parts from abortions.

The Amendment to the budget defunding Planned Parenthood is likely to fail in the Senate, if Democrats predictably filibuster it.
