Pro-life groups are taking a swing at congressional Republicans for agreeing to a government-spending bill that continues to fund Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider.

Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, called the proposed legislation “beyond frustrating,” given the electoral gains Republicans made in November running on a pro-life platform.

“The Republican Party is the only party with an anti-abortion platform and whose candidates ran specifically on the promise to defund Planned Parenthood, yet, here we are, watching them pass a bill that funds Planned Parenthood even though they control the House, Senate, and White House,” Ms. Hawkins said in a statement.
