Democrats continue to block Zika legislation unless Planned Parenthood gets money

By Tom Quiner

The Zika Virus poses grave health risks to society.

To help ward off a public health crisis, Republicans in Congress have crafted legislation that would provide funding to ‘health services provided by public health departments, hospitals, or reimbursed through public health plans.’

Democrats are blocking the bill unless taxpayer monies are also appropriated for some Planned Parenthood clinics in Puerto Rico.

Once again, Democrats will go to the mat for their buddies at Planned Parenthood, no matter how many people get hurt in the process.

Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, refuses to cave.

Let’s hope his backbone is stiff, because Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media will somehow try to twist this around and falsely blame Republicans for politicizing this compassionate piece of legislation.
