Already reeling from an undercover video sting, Planned Parenthood now faces a budget crisis as the House moves to deny the pro-abortion group all its customary federal funding, The New York Times reports. Contained in a 2011 spending bill that eliminates family planning services is an amendment that strips Planned Parenthood of $75 million in annual support.

Meanwhile, the Times reports that more House legislation targeting Planned Parenthood “is in the offing, putting the organization in its most precarious political spot in decades.”
