Senate thwarts Dems, keeps Planned Parenthood funding cuts in bill disabling health care law
US News

Senate Republicans have overwhelmed Democrats in a vote to end Planned Parenthood’s federal funding.

Thursday’s vote comes as the Senate moves toward approval of a bill that would all but repeal the president’s health care law.

The bill would also take away the federal dollars that Planned Parenthood receives. Democrats tried restoring those funds, but their effort was rejected on a near party-line vote of 54-46.
