Here is Mike Pence's statement on the House floor before the House passed his amendment to defund Planned Parenthood (America's largest abortion provider). Update: Click here for vote tally. Maybe if Planned Parenthood would stop doing abortions than they could make an argument that they are not about abortions but I have a feeling that they would be willing to loose all tax payer funding of their organization than to give up abortions.

Here is Mike Pence's statement after passage of the amendment 240-185.

WASHINGTON, DC - U.S. Congressman Mike Pence hailed the passage this afternoon of an amendment he authored that eliminates federal funding for Planned Parenthood for Fiscal Year 2011. The amendment passed with bipartisan support by a margin of 240 to 185:

"This afternoon's vote is a victory for taxpayers and a victory for life. By banning federal funding to Planned Parenthood, Congress has taken a stand for millions of Americans who believe their tax dollars should not be used to subsidize the largest abortion provider in America.

"I commend my colleagues in both parties for taking a stand for taxpayers and a stand for life. I encourage my colleagues in the Senate to support this legislation and end federal funding of Planned Parenthood once and for all."
