During a recent press conference, Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi labeled the defunding of Planned Parenthood a “manhood thing.”
While giving a charged speech about Republican efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare, Pelosi vehemently defended Planned Parenthood and its goals:
“Let me end on this note. Of all the things they could be doing in a reconciliation bill… job creation, deficit reduction… no, forget that. What are they doing in this bill? Overturning the Affordable Care Act, undermining the health, security, and financial stability of America’s working families, and defunding Planned Parenthood. “That’s their… that’s their manhood thing.”
Pelosi then shunned Republicans for honing in on Planned Parenthood and abortions. “Defunding Planned Parenthood? How could they establish that as their priority unless they were coming at all of this from a very ideological standpoint?”
Despite Pelosi’s comments, a recent Marist poll reflects that 63 percent of women oppose taxpayer dollars funding abortions. A Robert Morris University poll from 2015 revealed that 53 percent of Americans want Planned Parenthood defunded by the federal government.
