Senator Bob Casey from PA is demanding House Republicans drop plans to defund Planned Parenthood

In a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan, the senators say they are prepared to "protect millions of people who rely on Planned Parenthood."  

But pro-lifers are fighting back.  Maria Gallagher, legislative director for the Pennsylvania Pro-life Federation says “in standing up for Planned Parenthood, Senator Casey is standing against the best interests of both women and children.”

Planned Parenthood has been under scrutiny for selling body parts from abortions.
