Rand Paul wants a bill to fund Planned Parenthood in an effort to stop funding

Rand Paul Planned Parenthood

While most conservatives in Congress are fighting to defund Planned Parenthood after a rash of videos exposed the inhumane methods used by the group, particular when it comes to selling body parts of babies, Senator Rand Paul wants to take a different approach: force the supporters to fund it.

It’s unclear whether this would work, but it’s an interesting take on the concept. In essence, Paul suggests that it should get its own bill for spending rather than having its $500 million annual government contributions lumped in with other spending bills. By singling it out with its own bill, it would be on supporters to get the votes necessary to fund it rather than forcing those opposed to the organization to get the votes necessary to defund it.
