Now we know the reasons, at least some, for the attacks, with heavily edited video's and no understanding of medical research, their conservative health care research firms can't be none to happy, on Planned Parenthood and Women's Healthcare and rights of Choices. Sen Tillis is at it again, as a conservative, and had headed the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee doing nothing but a couple of no funded pieces of legislation, seeking to completely privatize the VA for corporate and investors profit with little to know regulation! He tried hard, to be beat down, to privatize the Salisbury NC VA hospital at the beginnings of the rubber stamped, still not paid for, Afghan and Iraq wars! Then put a hold on Wounded Amputee Iraq Veteran Tammy Duckworth's appointment to the VA with no reason given for. Only a couple of his many antics when he even bothered to attend hearings!! Tammy is now in the House, seeking and receiving the votes after she served, running the IL. VA state office and serving in the Veterans Affairs Agency, and running for the Senate seat in her state!
July 22 2015 - The burgeoning controversy over Planned Parenthood's fetal-tissue practices may have claimed its first victim: a bipartisan bill to help wounded veterans have children.
The Women Veterans and Families Health Services Act, a bill authored by Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) that would require fertility treatment and counseling for "severely wounded, ill, or injured" military members or veterans, had been expected to proceed through the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee on Wednesday. But Murray said she has asked that the bill be pulled thanks to proposed amendments from Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) -- including one that would have, in Tillis's words, prevented the Department of Veterans Affairs from working with "organizations that take human aborted babies' organs and sell them."
That was an unmistakable reference to recent criticism of Planned Parenthood's efforts to harvest fetal tissue for research purposes, a practice that has come under close scrutiny from conservatives after antiabortion activists published undercover videos that they say shows evidence of unethical and potentially illegal activities by Planned Parenthood executives. read more>>>
