Earlier today, the House of Representatives voted to freeze federal funding of Planned Parenthood for a year, reports The Hill.

The vote comes after an anti-abortion activist group posted heavily edited undercover videos implying that Planned Parenthood profited from the sale of fetal tissue to medical researchers.

The bill would block funding for a year unless Planned Parenthood promised to stop offering abortions (except in limited circumstances such as incest, rape, or if the mother's life is at risk).

The bill isn't expected to pass in the Senate, and even if it did, President Obama has said he would veto it.

We know what we think. What do you think?
