Diane Black: Contact Your Rep on Defunding 'Inhumane' PP

By    |   Friday, 24 July 2015 07:09 PM

Rep. Diane Black is asking Americans to contact their representatives in Congress and urge them to support her legislation which would freeze federal funding to Planned Parenthood.

"This is just inhumane what is happening there at Planned Parenthood," Black, a Tennessee Republican, said Friday to John Bachman, host of "Newsmax Now" on Newsmax TV.

"Please call your congressmen and ask them to be a co-sponsor.... That would be very helpful in moving the moratorium forward."

Black introduced her bill after two videos, released by the Center for Medical Progress, showed Planned Parenthood officials allegedly discussing the sale of recovered fetal tissue, and how to perform procedures in ways that as much as possible can be recovered.

Planned Parenthood insists it has been misrepresented in the editing of the videos and denies having broken the law.

But Black said her bill will allow the federal government to stop funding Planned Parenthood pending an investigation of the group.

"There are an estimated, a little over $500 million of taxpayer dollars go to fund Planned Parenthood," Black said.

"They are the biggest abortion industry in the entire country. They actually do an estimated over 327,000 abortions a year — and this is by their own recording.

"My bill right now has over 120 co-sponsors and we're continuing to work on that. We'll be working on that over the weekend even as others are back in their districts. I'll be making calls."

She said she hopes to get the bill passed before Congress recesses in August.

Since releasing the videos, the Center for Medical Progress has said it has hundreds — possibly thousands — of hours of undercover footage that will be released in the weeks and months ahead.
