Fight to Defund Planned Parenthood

Hosted by

Republicans lost a Senate vote to defund Planned Parenthood Monday, but the fight will probably resume next month when Congress comes back from its August recess. This comes after several undercover videos were released that show Planned Parenthood officials discussing providing fetal tissue from abortions to medical researchers. However, those videos were selectively edited, and fetal tissue research is not only legal, it’s funded by Congress.
