Vice President Mike Pence was the tie breaking vote on moving against funding for Planned Parenthood.
This is HUGE!! For once, since Obama took office, we are finally taking steps towards saving the babies. No longer will our tax dollars be forcibly used to pay for the murders of unborn children, while we have no say.
Of course Democrats were angry that we will no longer fund women’s decision to murder their babies, and took to twitter to complain.

USA Today Reports:
The measure, which now goes to President Trump for his signature, dismisses an Obama-era rule banning states from denying federal funds to such organizations.
Republicans have said the Obama rule should be overturned to allow states the right to steer funds away from abortion providers, if they choose.
Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, said the measure reverses a rule that “attempted to empower federal bureaucrats in Washington and silence our states.”
Democrats condemned the measure throughout the day, with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, of New York, calling it “another example of the Republican war on women.”
“It would let states treat women as second class citizens who don’t deserve the same access to health care as men,” he said.
Thank the Lord that we now have people with sense in the office! We must stop the genocide of our current and future generations!
