Mr. PENCE. I thank the gentleman for yielding.

I believe ending an innocent unborn human life is morally wrong. I also believe it's morally wrong to take the taxpayer dollars of millions of pro-life Americans and use them to subsidize the largest abortion provider in America. Today Congress will vote to do something about that.

Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in America. As this chart shows, in 2009 Planned Parenthood made 977 adoption referrals, had 7,021 prenatal care counseling sessions, and performed 332,278 abortions. During that time, Planned Parenthood received $363.2 million in taxpayer money. Planned Parenthood received $1 million a day and performed about a thousand abortions a day.

H. Con. Res. 36 will only put an end to taxpayer subsidy of Planned Parenthood. Despite the hyperbolic rhetoric of the left, this resolution will not cut one penny from Title X women's health services. It merely denies funds to the largest abortion provider in the land.

I want to thank the leadership of Speaker Boehner. I want to urge my colleagues to stand with all of us, to stand for life, to stand for taxpayers. Let's end public funding of the largest abortion provider in America once and for all.
