Proposal to de-fund Planned Parenthood adds to health care abortion controversy
U.S. Congressman Mike Pence (R-IN) has filed an amendment which would deny federal funding to Planned Parenthood through Title X Family Planning.

A backgrounder from Rep. Pence's office says the amendment would withhold annual appropriations of Health and Human Services’ Family Planning funds from Planned Parenthood.

In Wednesday remarks on the floor of the House of Representatives, Rep. Pence said "The time has come to deny any and all federal funding to Planned Parenthood of America. The largest abortion provider in America should not also be the largest recipient of federal funds under Title X."

Expressing confidence his proposed amendment will be "widely supported," he asked the House Rules Committee to place it in the voting order.
