Life News reports that it was Senate Democrats who blocked a measure to defund Planned Parenthood in August in a 53-46 vote on a cloture motion. This tally fell short of the 60 votes required to block a senate filibuster.
The Blaze assembled a list of the top 25 beneficiaries of Planned Parenthood political contributions, whether through its PAC or employees. Not surprisingly topping that list is Barack Obama, who some have described as the most pro-abortion president in United States history.

“According to the Center for Responsive Politics, during the 2014 election cycle, PP gave $892,000 to Democrats and $3,100 to Republicans. The 2012 election cycle was even more generous to the Democrats, with $1.2 million to Dems compared to $26,600 to GOPers,” TheBlaze reports.
“The financial ties between Planned Parenthood and Democrats run deep, with the taxpayer-funded women’s health care and abortion provider’s employees and political arms donating at least $25 million to party lawmakers over the past 15 years,” according to Fox News . . .
Additionally, Sue Thayer, a former center manager for Planned Parenthood for 17 years, is expected to testify on Thursday before the House Judiciary Committee that the organization has been systematically defrauding the American taxpayers, the Daily Caller reports. By federal law, Planned Parenthood is barred from using taxpayer money to perform abortions.

House OKs Planned Parenthood Probe
By Associated Press. The Republican-led House voted Wednesday to create a special panel to investigate Planned Parenthood and its procurement of fetal tissue as the GOP continued pressing an issue that has galvanized conservatives since secret videos surfaced this summer.
The near party-line vote was 242-184, as Democrats dismissed the probe as a wasteful political exercise by the GOP. It was unclear if Democrats would participate in the committee’s work.
Republicans said the committee was needed to examine whether Planned Parenthood is breaking laws or misusing taxpayer money. Four other congressional committees are already investigating the women’s health organization, three in the House and one in the Senate. (Read more from “House OKs Planned Parenthood Probe” HERE)
