Pence Casts Deciding Vote To Allow States To Defund Planned Parenthood

Vice President and pro-life advocate Mike Pence has cast the deciding vote to ensure a bill passes that will ensure individual states are allowed to freely defund abortion giant Planned Parenthood. Pence voted on a resolution reversing an Obama administration rule that prevented states from withholding family-planning dollars from Planned Parenthood and other clinics that provide abortions, reports The Washington Post. 

“It’s a simple statement of where we used to be,” said Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.). “States could choose to have Planned Parenthood as part of their Title X funding [but] states should not be compelled to.”
