Despite recent revelations of Planned Parenthood’s complicity in aiding child prostitution and rape and their millions in government funding of abortions, Harry Reid has decide he will risk a government shutdown rather than let GOP defund Planned Parenthood.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Thursday drew a firm line with Republicans, declaring that a controversial Planned Parenthood measure will not be included in any deal on the budget.

Reid’s warning, coupled with the GOP’s insistence that taxpayer dollars should not fund Planned Parenthood, increase the chances of a government shutdown.

Flanked by Sens. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), Reid spoke to reporters immediately after the Senate voted 87-13 to pass legislation funding the government through April 8. Nine Republicans, three Democrats and Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.) voted against the measure, which cuts $6 billion from the federal budget.
