THE TIME HAS COME TO DENY ALL FEDERAL FUNDING TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD OF 
                                AMERICA

  (Mr. PENCE asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 
minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. PENCE. Mr. Speaker, it comes as a surprise to most Americans to 
learn that the largest abortion provider in America is also the largest 
recipient of Federal funding under Title X. It is heartbreaking news 
this morning the Planned Parenthood of America has now been the subject 
of one more undercover video showing someone posing as a pimp being 
facilitated by employees at Planned Parenthood in how to secure secret 
abortions, STD testing, and contraception for child prostitutes.
  You know, as a father of two teenage daughters, I see the video that 
came out this morning, I see the video that came out last week, and it 
is an outrage to me that employees of Planned Parenthood clinics across 
the country are facilitating the abuse of minor girls in this country. 
It should be a scandal to every American.
  The time has come to deny all Federal funding to Planned Parenthood 
of America. I have authored the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition 
Act, which would deny Title X funds to Planned Parenthood or any other 
abortion provider, and Congress must act and act now to move this 
important legislation. Pro-life Americans, and all Americans, should 
not be forced to subsidize America's largest abortion provider or to 
continue to provide Federal taxpayer dollars to Title X clinics that 
engage in this abhorrent behavior.
