Missouri House Votes To Strip Planned Parenthood Funding

While Missouri Senate Democrats filibustered an anti-LGBT measure Tuesday, the state's House Republicans pushed through a budget measure that would defund Planned Parenthood. Alex Stuckey reports: State Rep. Robert Ross, R-Yukon, spearheaded the move Tuesday to strip almost $380,000 out of the 2017 budget that begins July 1, saying he didn't want any state dollars going toward abortions.
