Betrayal On Capitol Hill

Tony Campolo: “In exchange for getting support for Planned Parenthood from the Republicans, the Democrats were more than ready to betray the poor — and especially poor women and children — they claim to represent. The Democrats went along with the Republican proposal to cut funding for Community Health Centers by $600 million and for a program called Women, Infants and Children (a program that provides food assistance, counseling and a variety of other support systems for families that live below the poverty level) by $500 million.

There you have it! Planned Parenthood will get funding from supposedly pro-life Republicans, and in return the Democrats have made a decision to give up funding for two programs that serve the poor.”
