The U.S. House passed an amendment last week not to fund Planned Parenthood. The measure now goes to the Senate, and would eliminate about $330 million for preventive health services including contraception and cancer screenings. Gail Atteberry with Oregon Right to Life, applauds the Bill. “One third of their money comes from the government. Should it not be funded, we're still talking about three quarters of a billion dollars, that's with a “B”. It does not leave them penniless.” Roey Thorpe with Planned Parenthood advocates of Oregon says not funding Planned Parenthood would hurt many women. “And here in Oregon 2000 women a week come through our doors for our services. 85% of them are low-income women. It really is valuable services we provide.” Planned Parenthood is already prevented by federal law from using federal dollars for abortion services.
