House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy told reporters Monday that he expects lawmakers to have a "healthy debate" about defunding Planned Parenthood, but that he does not anticipate a government shutdown over financing of the reproductive health services group. The announcement follows last week's shooting at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic that left three dead and nine injured. We'll discuss the ongoing campaign against Planned Parenthood and how the shooting may shape our national dialogue about abortion and gun violence.
