House Republicans approved an amendment Friday blocking the funding of Planned Parenthood. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi slammed Republicans in a press conference later that day.

She pointed out that defunding family planning initiatives would actually lead to more abortions, something conservatives have been trying to prevent.

“Perhaps we have to have a lesson in the birds and the bees around here for them to understand that,” Pelosi said.
