Oink! Planned Parenthood gets more Pork

The following May 22 story from CitizenLink is probably old news for many of you:

Thanks to a Democrat maneuver, Planned Parenthood will receive a discount from drug manufacturers in a bill designed to fund our troops.

On Wednesday, the U.S. Senate voted on an amendment to the War Supplemental Appropriations Bill. Democrats, led by Sen. Barack Obama, had inserted language to help Planned Parenthood into the domestic-spending portion of this troop-funding bill. The Senate passed the amendment 75-22.

The provision allows for groups like Planned Parenthood and university health centers to receive discounted prices from drug manufacturers for drugs like the morning-after pill, which may cause an early abortion.

"Planned Parenthood should not be receiving any federal assistance, and certainly not in a bill that’s designed to help our troops," said Ashley Horne, federal policy analyst for Focus on the Family Action.

Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider, received $330 million in taxpayer money last year.

Think about that when you go to vote in November. First he exposed the grandmother who raised him to public ridicule just to save his political backside from the Reverend Wright issue. Now he has led other senators in using the troops to sneak in some additional support for the abortion industry.

Change we can believe in?
