Once again, the American people have been left in the dust after the last ObamaCare repeal of the year was shot down. We have many people to thank for that failure, including Senator John McCain and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Now, a pro-life leader is calling for McConnell’s resignation for his lack of leadership, and failure to repeal Obamacare and defund Planned Parenthood.
Operation Rescue President Troy Newman said, “This repeated incapacity to get the job done is completely unacceptable,” he continued, “I call on Mitch McConnell to resign from his position as Senate Majority Leader because of this leadership failure.”
He said, “[A]nd that includes saving innocent lives by defunding Planned Parenthood. This kind of betrayal of innocent children must not happen again.”
Thanks to their inability to repeal it, the murderous group will continue to be funded for another year. He added, “This means Planned Parenthood will have the resources it needs to continue its killing spree, and thousands of lives will be lost because of it.”
McConnell was too busy dragging his feet and squabbling with Trump to get anything done.
Republicans have not come together behind any of the healthcare legislation introduced to replace Obamacare. The bills have contained provisions to eliminate Medicaid reimbursements to abortion chain Planned Parenthood for a period of one year.
Republicans have presented themselves to Americans as a pro-life party, and promised to defund Planned Parenthood once they had control of the House, the Senate, and the White House.
President Donald Trump also promised his pro-life constituents he would defund Planned Parenthood, as long as the organization continues to perform abortions and redirect that funding to other community health centers that offer more comprehensive services but do not perform abortions.
Newman, who was once a member of the board of directors of the Center for Medical Progress – the group that conducted the undercover exposé of Planned Parenthood’s alleged illegal involvement in the sale of aborted baby body parts for profit – says the GOP must replace McConnell with someone who can unite the party and fulfill Trump’s agenda.
