Here is a terrific NRO piece from Marjorie Dannenfelser of the SBA List explaining the serious stakes before the U.S. Senate when it comes to defunding a significant portion of Planned Parenthood’s federal subsidies. Marjorie explains how this can be done on the budget “reconciliation” bill. This is a unique opportunity for Congress and for pro-life legislators. The House passed the bill overwhelmingly.
