Late last night, the House debated the continuing resolution and more 500 proposed amendments. But, the agenda turned to Republican Mike Pense’s proposed amendment to cut federal funding for Planned Parenthood to zero.
One of the many Republicans who supported the amendment was Representative Chris Smith of New Jersey. And to make his argument, Smith read a passage from a book written by a former abortion provider who described in graphic detail what a dilation and evacuation procedure looks like on an ultrasound. Again, warning to users – it’s graphic.
Democratic Congresswoman from California Jackie Speier, was the next person to speak. In a dramatic floor speech, she revealed her own sad experience with ending a pregnancy that brought the House floor to a stand still.
The House voted today to support the amendment from Congressman Mike Pence that strips Planned Parenthood of funding.
