    BLACK. Mr. Speaker, I hold in my hand Planned Parenthood's annual report, and in these pages, you will find the true war on women.

    By their own numbers, taxpayer funding for this organization is up, while preventative healthcare services are down and abortions continue to stand at over 320,000 a year.

    I am proud to support today's reconciliation bill to defund Planned Parenthood and to redirect those dollars to true preventative healthcare services for women, because Americans, and women, in particular, deserve better than this.

    We may not be able to change the President's heart on this issue-- goodness knows we have tried--but we can put him on record. If this President truly thinks that my constituents' tax dollars should fund this scandal-ridden abortion giant, that is on his conscience, but he should at least be forced to put a pen on paper and explain the belief to the American people.
