Concurrent Resolution to Defund Planned Parenthood
On the Concurrent Resolution
Senate Roll Call No. 60
112nd Congress, 1st Session

Rejected: 42-58 (see complete tally)

On April 14, 2011, the Senate defeated, by a vote of 58-42, H. Con. Res. 36, a concurrent resolution that would have defunded Planned Parenthood.  H. Con. Res. 36 would have eliminated 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 have undermined women's access to basic health care services, disproportionately impacted low-income women, and raised serious constitutional concerns by penalizing an organization for using its own (non-federal) funds to provide abortions.
