Planned Parenthood launches national campaign to take on Trump, GOP


They've already laid the groundwork to repeal Obamacare with a single majority vote, and House Speaker Paul Ryan says Congress will also aim to defund Planned Parenthood in the same reconciliation bill.

The incoming administration, Pence said, is working right now on "a series of executive orders that will enable that orderly transition to take place even as the Congress appropriately debates alternatives to and replacement of Obamacare".

In a news conference Thursday afternoon, Ryan said "Planned Parenthood legislation would be in our reconciliation bill". And you did have to wonder if Donald Trump's own famous flip-flopping over Planned Parenthood was causing problems behind the scenes, leading to pressure on Ryan to show his cards.

House Speaker Paul Ryan takes a refreshing sip of water before announcing when and how he will be waging war on women.

The measure was only voted on by about a half-dozen state legislators and has already been sent to anti-legalization Gov.

Planned Parenthood denied it made a profit but refused to provide accounting documents to demonstrate its claim, the panel reported.

Republicans, of course, have been trying to strip federal funding for Planned Parenthood for years because the organization provides abortions, in addition to routine low-priced reproductive health services. Republicans, who control the Senate 52-48, plan to use reconciliation to repeal major aspects of Obamacare, just as Democrats used reconciliation to amend the law in 2010. In a January 2016 CBS News-New York Times poll, 57 percent of those surveyed said Planned Parenthood should continue to receive funding from the federal government. Democrats are gearing up to defend against GOP attempts to attack the group.

Almost 60 percent of respondents said they oppose taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood, with 47 percent saying they strongly oppose funding the group. The organization runs more than 650 health centers around the country, serving around 2.5 million patients a year. Likely targets include the law's tax penalties for people who don't obtain insurance, its requirement that many companies cover workers and tax increases on higher-earning individuals and many health care firms.

Planned Parenthood on Thursday launched a campaign to resist congressional efforts to target the organization, with marches, letter-writing campaigns and other activities planned in dozens of cities over the next three months to demand that lawmakers abandon efforts to undermine a source of health care for 2.5 million Americans.
