Jeb Bush: Don’t Shut Down Government Over Planned Parenthood

The Attorney General’s Office interviewed workers at Planned Parenthood, the only licensed surgical abortion facility in Missouri, and reviewed documents from all 317 abortions during a 30-day audit, according to the statement. America’s largest abortion provider, which performs an abortion every 90 seconds, is now embroiled in a controversy stemming from a series of undercover videos.


Boehner can comfortably pass a clean bill now because he doesn’t have to worry about either losing his speakership or the damaging effects on party morale that a failed attempt to oust him would have. It’s time that Congress finally ends our tax dollars from going to such a sinister organization.

Many credit the climb to Fiorina’s strong stance against Planned Parenthood, which was an issue highlighted at today’s event.

“I think they should be investigated as to how they obtained those and doctored those and had them be accepted as something that was an indictment against Planned Parenthood“.

Congress can put the ball in Obama’s court. But I believe this is something we must stand up and fight for. By one estimate, one in five women in the USA has used Planned Parenthood’s services at some point during their lifetime. Carly Fiorina, the only woman seeking the Republican nomination, was confronted during an event in Iowa City on Saturday by more than 20 Planned Parenthood protesters. Is pressure from the Planned Parenthood debate to blame? The World Health Organization, plus other recognized organizations, define it to include “appropriate health care services that will enable women to go safely through pregnancy and childbirth … protect the health of a baby“.

That accounts for up to 650,000 women who would be cut off from access to health care under the Republican plan.

“There is a ripple effect, it would be that health centers would close and there would be a lack of reproductive health care services”, said PPGNW spokesperson Katie Rogers. For example, if you need a mammogram, don’t bother to call Planned Parenthood. Four Planned Parenthood clinics around the country were bombed or otherwise attacked in 1986. House leadership needs to follow the conservative principles that put it there – whether that means defunding Obamacare’s failures or Planned Parenthood’s callousness.

Arbor Healthcare for Women out of Richland sat down and talked with us. That suggests he soon would press ahead with a short-term measure free of the Planned Parenthood dispute.

“She is pushing the abortion agenda to get votes and she’s not telling the truth”.


After about 15 minutes of protesting, Shireman and the other Planned Parenthood supporters were blocked off from interacting with Fiorina by security guards, who confirmed to ThinkProgress that they were off-duty officers with the Johnson County Sheriff’s department.
