The Pence Amendment ?

So Rep. Mike Pence R-IN Title X wants to completely defund Planned Parenthood . His defense is anti choice tax payers shouldn't have to pay for abortions. However, the reality is because of the restrictive Hyde Amendment Planned Parenthood can't use the funds for abortion procedures.

The title X funding is an amendment that will drastically affect millions of low & middle income women by eliminating their access to preventive health care services like including cancer screenings, breast exams, STI & HIV testing as well as family planning services.

Since Planned Parenthood is already prohibited from using taxpayer funding for abortions then it looks like the Pence amendment is intended so stop women from being healthy.....

Of course he is going to blame everything on abortion and to think this passed in the House. If we don't take a stand thing are going to get more restrictive. It's time for us to stand up and make our voices heard!
