Illinois Republican Senate Candidate Votes for Planned Parentedhood (Again)
And so Mark Kirk (R) Illinois, does it again, just after announcing his run for U.S. Senate in Illinois. An ammendment to defund Planned Parenthood offered by Mike Pence (R) Indiana was voted down today, 247-183. Nine Republicans, including Kirk, voted with the Democrats to kill an attempt to de-fund Planned Parenthood. And this guy wants to be our Republican nominee for Senate? So, in less than a decade, the Illinois Republican Party goes from one of the most serious pro-life advocates, Alan Keyes, to ever more serious pro-choicer Mark Kirk as its U.S. Senate nominee. Hope the Illinois Republican Party or National Republican Senatorial Commitee doesn't start throwing around endorsements too soon.
