Amendment to Defund Planned Parenthood
On Agreeing to the Amendment
House Roll Call No. 93
112nd Congress, 1st Session

Agreed to: 240-185 (see complete tally)
On Friday, February 18, 2011, the House passed, by a vote of 240-185-1, an amendment offered by Representative Mike Pence (R-IN) to the House Continuing Resolution for Fiscal Year 2011 (H.R. 1). The Pence Amendment would eliminate all federal funding to Planned Parenthood because the organization uses its own money to provide women with abortion care. The ACLU opposed the Pence Amendment 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.
