So once again, it isn't about saving unborn lives...

.... it's about politics.
"We fully support reallocating Planned Parenthood’s Title X funding to the 13,000 community health centers and rural health care clinics,” said Kristen Day, president of [Blue Party Members] for Life of America.
And yet-
The Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act of 2015 passed the House Friday on a party line vote, 240-189. Only one [Blue], Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota, voted for it.
Because it was more important to the other party that they
[gut] key parts of the 2010 Affordable Care Act, including the repeal of the law’s individual health insurance mandate and the employer health insurance mandate.
Because apparently what's really important to the Red Party is taking noble, if mostly symbolic stands and attaching it to some other cause you know the Blue Party won't go for thus ensuring that the other guys look like they're taking ignoble stands, and most importantly, keep abortion going so that you can campaign on that, have red meat to throw to your base and get them fired up and rally the troops.
It sure isn't about saving unborn lives.
