Update on Rep Ted Harvey and Gianna Jessen

You may recall this post from last week about abortion survivor Gianna Jessen and her courageous stand for life in Colorado, along with Minority Leader Rep Ted Harvey.

I had asked if the vote actually took place and wondered about the outcome. I am watching EWTN's Life on the Rock, and they just had Rep Ted Harvey on the phone.

Unfortunately, all Democrats voted to recognize 90 years of Planned Parenthood, and one Republican voted with them. The remaining Republicans (minority), voted against recognizing Planned Parenthood.

Hence, the resolution recognizing 90 years of baby-butchery passed - sadly. I didn't even realize Planned Parenthood was around that long!

Diane,

It was started by Margaret Sanger. Yes, she was around that long.

Thanks Chris. Like many, I didn't think PP came into existence until the 70's. Never thought about it.
