Cloture on S. 1881: A bill to prohibit Federal funding of Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

This was a vote on S. 1881 in the Senate. In this vote Democrats filibustered the bill. The bill would have ended federal funding for Planned Parenthood. The House later voted on a similar bill.

Planned Parenthood has been in the spotlight because of transactions involving fetal tissue. Federal funding for Planned Parenthood supports its reproductive health, maternal health, and child health services, but not abortions — existing law prohibits federal funds from being used for abortions. The vote did not address the organization’s practices regarding fetal tissue.

This vote was related to a bill introduced by Sen. Joni Ernst [R-IA] on July 28, 2015, S. 1881: A bill to prohibit Federal funding of Planned Parenthood Federation of America..
