Reuters 22 July 2015Republican presidential candidates and lawmakers are calling for Planned Parenthood to be investigated and its federal funding eliminated after two videos that critics said showed the reproductive health care group is involved in the illegal sale of aborted fetal tissue.White House hopeful Senator Rand Paul introduced an amendment to a highway bill Wednesday that would cut the nearly $500 million in taxpayer funding that goes annually to Planned Parenthood.“Not one more taxpayer dollar should go to Planned Parenthood and I intend to make that goal a reality,” Paul said.Republican Representative Diane Black introduced a bill on Tuesday that would place an immediate moratorium on all federal funding for one year while Congress investigates the group’s practices. Eighty lawmakers signed on as co-sponsors.The videos show Planned Parenthood officials discussing ways to perform abortions to preserve fetal tissue for research and the costs involved. They were secretly recorded by anti-abortion group Center for Medical Progress.Planned Parenthood says it does not profit from fetal tissue donation and only receives payment for associated costs, which is legally permissible.http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/07/22/us-usa-plannedparenthood-congress-idUSKCN0PW21K20150722
Press Association Eddie Lynam’s Balmont Mast nearly pulled off a 33-1 surprise in the Golden Shaheen at Meydan but just failed to catch Reynaldothewizard. Mullen said: “I was disappointed earlier in the evening as the track rode too slow for Surfer in the Godolphin Mile, so it is really great to win this. “I am delighted for Mr Seemar – I do the easy bit sitting on top of the horse and doing the steering, but it is the trainer who carries out all the hard work and he richly deserves this.” The Satish Seemar-trained winner, ridden by Richard Mullen, had won twice at the Carnival already but was stepping up markedly in class and only held off the Irish challenger by a neck. Tom Hogan’s Gordon Lord Byron met trouble on the rail, but when the gap came he could not quicken, and Godolphin’s red-hot favourite Mental never threatened to get involved at any stage.
