Concurrent Resolution to Defund Planned Parenthood
On Agreeing to the Resolution
House Roll Call No. 271
112nd Congress, 1st Session

Passed: 241-185 (see complete tally)

On April 14, 2011, the House passed, by a vote of 241-185, H. Con. Res. 36, a concurrent resolution offered by Rep. Black (R-Ky.) to defund Planned Parenthood. H. Con. Res. 36 would eliminate all federal funding to Planned Parenthood because the organization uses its own money to provide women with abortion care. The ACLU opposed H. Con Res. 36 because it would undermine women's access to basic health care services, would disproportionately impact low-income women, and raised serious constitutional concerns because it penalized an organization for using its own (non-federal) funds to provide abortions.
