A bill defunding Planned Parenthood could be headed to President Obama soon.
A so-called reconciliation bill was introduced because it requires a majority vote in the Republican-led Senate.
Mallory Quigley of the Susan B. Anthony List reports good news for pro-lifers, which is that the senate parliamentarian will allow the bill to move forward after first suggesting it needed 60 votes.
"Clearing that parliamentary hurdle was certainly the biggest obstacle," she tells OneNewsNow.
The senate could vote soon on the measure, which Quigley says presents an opportunity to put a pro-life measure on the desk of the pro-abortion President.
"He's going to veto it," she predicts, "but that's why it's so important that this bill move forward. That we continue to have this conversation – high-profile debate - about why taxpayer dollars are going to an abortion business like Planned Parenthood in the first place."
That annual taxpayers' bill is more than a half-billion dollars.
There are 51 pro-life votes in the Senate, a slim majority, but the outcome is not certain. So Susan B. Anthony List is encouraging people to contact their two Senators asking that they vote yes.
