(CNSNews.com) – House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) today would not rule out that the Republican House leadership would permit taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood in the final continuing resolution that Congress must enact to keep the government funded through the rest of fiscal year 2011, which runs through Sept. 30.
The CR currently funding the government–enacted by the Democrat-controlled lameduck Congress in December–expires on March 4. To keep the government funded past March 4, Congress must approve, and President Barack Obama must sign, another CR by that date.
This week, the Republican leadership is trying to approve a short-term two-week CR that would basically maintain the status quo on spending while they negotiate a longer-term CR with Senate Democrats and the White House.
On Feb. 19, the House passed a CR that would have kept the government funded through Sept. 30, but the Democrat-controlled Senate never took it up. That CR included an amendment sponsored by Rep. Mike Pence (R.-Ind.) that would have expressly prohibited any federal funding for Planned Parenthood or any of its affiliates for the rest of this fiscal year.
In its most recent annual report, Planned Parenthood said it took in $349.6 million in government funds in fiscal 2008. That same year, the organization says, it performed 324,008 abortions.
