In a historical fashion, both the U.S. House and U.S. Senate have agreed on a bill to defund Planned Parenthood.

The bill also repeals major key provisions of the Obamacare mandate.

This is the first time that a bill to Defund Planned Parenthood has passed both chambers; simultaneously, it is also the first time a bill stripping Obamacare provisions has passed both chambers.

While President Obama is likely to veto the bill, the passage of this bill sends a message that the American people are passionate about the protection of life and the protection of choice when it comes to insurance.

There is now hope that a similar bill will be signed into law with a new presidential administration in 2017.
