On Thursday, House Speaker Paul Ryan said that Republicans would defund Planned Parenthood as part of the Obamacare repeal bill currently being devised on Capitol Hill.

“The Planned Parenthood legislation would be in our reconciliation bill,” Ryan told reporters.

In an attempt to prevent Democrats from filibustering the Obamacare repeal bill in the Senate, Republicans are using budget reconciliation to strip the ACA of the funding it needs to continue. Ryan’s comments on Thursday were the first official sign that the GOP plans to use this process to simultaneously yank federal funds from the nation’s largest abortionist.

The push to defund Planned Parenthood became a top Republican priority last year when a series of undercover videos exposed the organization’s despicable and illegal practices. Ryan’s remarks came on the heels of a report from the House Select Panel on Infant Lives, which detailed how the abortion company bolstered its profits with some of these practices.

The report, which has been completely ignored by the mainstream media, condemned Planned Parenthood for allowing tissue-procurement organizations to harvest fetal tissue in their clinics. Meanwhile, these TPOs – StemExpress being one of them – would stand aside and let Planned Parenthood accept compensation for the work. In this way, the abortionists were able to skirt the law and profit illegally.

Furthermore, the report noted that Planned Parenthood altered its abortion procedures to make sure StemExpress and other TPOs got the high-quality stem-cell tissue they needed. These alternative procedures heightened the risk of a fetus being born alive. As for what happens to those babies…no one in the industry appears willing to say.

Despite these disgusting revelations – and despite the already-disgusting dirty work performed by this organization – at least two Republican senators are balking at the idea of defunding Planned Parenthood. Sen. Susan Collins of Maine and Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska have signaled that they may vote against any budget that takes money away from the abortion giant.

“I’m going to wait and see what happens,” Collins said. “Obviously, I’m not happy to hear the speaker wants to include defunding of Planned Parenthood, an extremely controversial issue in the package.”

A spokesperson for Murkowski said the senator “is concerned about defunding Planned Parenthood as she is a longtime support of Planned Parenthood and has opposed broadly defunding the organization.”

When you’re willing to stand against the repeal of Obamacare for the sake of preserving Planned Parenthood’s federal funding…what exactly separates you from the liberal Democrats?

Guess we’ll leave that question for the voters of Alaska and Maine.
