This is what Representative Chris Smith, who organized the Special Order, said in his speech Wednesday night:
"Can we trust Planned Parenthood? They say their vision is to be the Nation's most trusted provider of sexual and reproductive health care. This is from an organization that targets minorities, that performs millions of abortions and barely even attempts to help women carry the babies to term. Reproductive health should include, not exclude, babies."
Even if the U.S. should pay for family planning, why should we subsidize the abortion industry? This debate is not about family planning, it's about using abortion as a means of population control.
