    Planned Parenthood Could Profit From War Funding Bill

    By Michael Gryboski Correspondent

    ( - The Senate Appropriations Committee has added an amendment to the 2008 War Supplemental Bill (H.R. 2642) that pro-life advocates say would benefit the nation's largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood.

    The measure would once again allow Planned Parenthood clinics and university health centers to receive drugs at discounted prices, according to Wendy Wright, president of the pro-life group Concerned Women for America.

    "Planned Parenthood already has a massive markup on its drugs," Wright told Cybercast News Service. "They get them at a severely reduced price as it is, and then they turn around and sell them for a rather high price to their clients."


    Four Democrats -- Senators Patty Murray (Wash.), Herb Kohl (Wis.), Tom Harkin (Iowa), and Ben Nelson (Neb.) -- requested that the amendment be added to the Iraq war funding bill.
