Showdown in Senate over Planned Parenthood
WASHINGTON (AP) — There’s likely to be a Senate showdown over halting federal aid to Planned Parenthood.
Conservatives have long targeted the group, which provides health services, family planning and abortions in clinics across the country.
A vote Monday proposes shifting Planned Parenthood money to other health care providers.
This latest battle was prompted by a series of videos that have focused attention on the group’s little-noticed practice of providing fetal tissue to researchers.
