Congress votes to defund Planned Parenthood
In Washington, DC, the U.S. House of Representatives voted on Feb. 18 to eliminate governmental funding from Planned Parenthood, the nation's top abortion provider, for the rest of the fiscal year.
This marks the first time that Congress has voted to defund the organization, which allegedly conducted more than 324,000 abortions at clinics during 2008.
