INDIANAPOLIS -- U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly (D-Indiana) voted Thursday to keep federal funding for Planned Parenthood – a different stance than he took on a similar vote in August.

The vote was on one of many amendments proposed Thursday as the Senate was debating a bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act – a bill which is guaranteed a veto from President Barack Obama. The amendment to keep Title X funding for Planned Parenthood failed 48-52.

In August, Donnelly was one of only two Democrats to vote in favor of a Senate measure to strip Planned Parenthood of federal funding. That attempt failed 53-46. Donnelly was joined by Republican U.S. Senator Dan Coats in voting yes.

Donnelly said at the time he could not "in good faith support federal funding for this organization until the questions of whether other clinics are complying with federal and state laws are answered."

His vote to defund Planned Parenthood cost him the support of former Lt. Gov. Kathy Davis, who resigned as his campaign treasurer immediately afterward.

Donnelly released a statement Thursday explaining his change of opinion.

“I am committed to ensuring women have access to quality health care, like cancer screenings and wellness visits, and that our health care providers are in compliance with federal law," Donnelly said. "I am pleased that Planned Parenthood has changed its policy and will no longer accept federal reimbursement for fetal tissue intended for medical research, and the organization has not been found to be in violation of any federal laws."

An independent investigation ordered by Gov. Mike Pence of Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky had already found no violations of state law at the time of Donnelly's original vote.

Donnelly also voted Thursday to block gun sales to "known or suspected dangerous terrorists." That measure failed in a straight party-line vote, 45-54, with Coats joining fellow Republicans in voting against it.

The question is not that PP gets a huge percentage of federal spending. The question is that PP kills babies which is abhorrent to many taxpayers. Yes, Medicaid payments may NOT be used to pay for abortions, but Medicaid payments do add to the bottom line of PP's books. Therefore having such a ban on abortion funding amounts to a no peeing section of a swimming pool.

Yes, in politics. 99% of the time, every political argument from every talking head on every site, when confronted with something wrong, say "well the other side did this or something similar". Its the basis for every argument, and the explanation for everything.

The counterargument for background checks on refugees? "Well you oppose background checks for guns"
The counterargument for background checks on guns?" "Well you oppose background checks on refugees"

Somebody caught in a lie? The discussion is never about the severity or consequences of the lie, its instantly "well the other side lied too".

We argue nothing on the merits anymore, and debate solely on the relativity to the other side. And if one person or side has wronged, we accept it it as an excuse if the otherside wronged as well. We're more concerned with which side has 'scored more points' and has the 'high ground' than we are the actual act.

We have totally accepted two wrongs make a right.

Senator Donnelly accepted abortion blood money according to OpenSecrets.org

If you believe that you will ever see that little tidbit in any newspaper, you are hopelessly naïve.

Before you go too far down the road on this issue, do simple research and get the facts . . .

3 out of every 4 abortion mills are located in minority neighborhoods to target black Americans for murder. It's ethnic cleansing. It's bigotry at its finest.

While only 1 out of every 8 Americans is black, a whopping 1 out of every 3 pre-born babies murdered in abortion mills is black.

http://www.hangmansknot.com reports that some 4,921 black Americans were lynched or legally executed in 10 Southern states between 1882 and 1930. More blacks are murdered every week in abortion mills than were killed in that 48 years ! ! ! So efficient is the abortion killing machine that the black percentage of the total U.S. population cannot rise above 13%.

The leading cause of death – by far – among black Americans is abortion. Based upon a multi-year period, including 17,785,870 deaths, cumulative statistics provided by U.S. Center for Disease Control show that the cause of 73.1% black American deaths is abortion.

Hello !

Why should being black be a crime in America ?

According to OpenSecrets.org, ALL of the top 20 recipients of abortion blood money are Democrats.

The murder and butchery of pre-born babies to harvest and market body parts (reference https://www.thetrumpet.com/article/1308 ... body-parts ) funds Democrat election campaigns. Just ask the good Reverend Jesse Jackson who was against abortion until he learned how powerful blood money is in advancing candidates.

Ask yourself, "Why is the sustaining of murder and butchery of pre-born babies the #1 Social Plank in the Democrat platform ?"

Study of Romans 1:32 reveals that everyone who agrees with or supports the murder of abortion will share the guilt of those who execute the wicked practice. And all such participants, by virtue of their support, will be called upon to give account of their evil works before a holy God.
