Wondering why the GOP has not yet defunded Planned Parenthood of its $500 million in taxpayer funds despite previously holding both chambers of the U.S. legislature and the presidency? According to Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), the leadership fears that “we might win.”
In a speech at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” conference, the unapologetically pro-life U.S. Senator said that Republicans are not following the will of pro-lifers despite the movement’s growth, reports LifeSiteNews.
“We still lose in the legislation,” Rand Paul said. “We lose because the people who come to you and give you lip service and say, ‘Oh I’m pro-life, I’m pro-life,’ and then they don’t seem to vote that way.”
The senator from Kentucky related an anecdote of how he tried pass a spending bill defunding Planned Parenthood only to have the GOP leadership shut it down for no other reason than to play political football.
