The U.S. House of Representatives voted today to defund Planned Parenthood while legislators continue their investigation of allegations that the abortion giant is profiting from the sale of fetal body parts.
The bill would take the $235 million of savings and invest it into Federally Qualified Health Centers.
With three Republicans and two Democrats crossing the aisle, the final vote for H.R. 3134, the "Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015," was 241-187.
The bill would defund Planned Parenthood while Congress investigates whether it has violated federal fetal harvesting laws, as well as partial-birth abortion and abortion modification laws.
"Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, said in a statement that the vote was 'about continuing the process to protect our most vulnerable'," according to LifeSiteNews.
"The bill was one of two pro-life bills passed by the House today. The other was H.R. 3504, the 'Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act,' which makes killing a baby born due to a botched abortion first-degree murder," LifeSiteNews reports.
"Neither bill is expected to pass the Senate, which has garnered frustration among many pro-life leaders," LifeSiteNew states.
