Senate Votes On Planned Parenthood Funding05:27

This article is more than 5 years old.

Republicans in the Senate are not expected to come up with enough votes today to pass a bill to cut federal funding for Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood became a GOP target last month after secretly-recorded videos surfaced, showing employees discussing the group's little-noticed sale of fetal organs for legal fetal tissue research. Last month before those videos surfaced, the House Committee on Appropriations approved a measure to cut all funding for Planned Parenthood's Title X Family Planning program, which pays for services like contraception and cancer screenings.

Jennifer Ludden joins Here & Now's Robin Young to discuss today's vote.
