They did it again. Senate Democrats blocked Zika funding for a third straight time, complaining that the GOP shouldn’t be adding pro-life language within the proposed funding.

Even though the GOP did not block Zika funding, liberals wasted no time still blaming them.
Because killing women and girls and flying a traitor's flag are what's important to Republicans in 2016…. https://t.co/iP4OyQsuLl

Contraception = Zika prevention. Millions of women get their contraception from Planned Parenthood. Yet GOP excluded PP from Zika funding.

Democrats reject GOP bill to defund Planned Parenthood & celebrate Confederate racism even though it also contained inadequate Zika funding

Republicans won't fund Zika efforts unless they can stick it to women and blacks. The Confederate flag? Really? https://t.co/w3bSZ4GEwD

We all know the left would have no problem adding abortion or Planned Parenthood funding to all their bills. But when conservatives add pro-life measures to theirs, liberals lose their minds over it. They always like to claim abortion is “healthcare” or “reproductive freedom.”
Facts are facts. Senate Democrats own this Zika funding stalemate. All 100% of it.
