Senators voted 54-46 to set aside an amendment to the Obamacare repeal bill that would remove a provision that defunds 80 percent of Planned Parenthood's federal funding for a year and reallocates the funds to other healthcare centers.

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-WV, voted with Republicans to table the pro-abortion amendment, while pro-choice Sen. Mark Kirk, R-IL voted with Democrats.

The vote comes as the Senate moves toward passing a bill to all but repeal Obama's health care law.

The House is expected to send the bill to the president in the next few days. However, the White House has strongly indicated a presidential veto is coming.

According to the Susan B. Anthony fact sheet on Planned Parenthood, during the fiscal year 2013-2014 Planned Parenthood received more than $528 million in taxpayer funding.

The fact sheet also shows that in 2013 abortions made up 94 percent of Planned Parenthood's pregnancy services, while prenatal care and adoption referrals accounted for only 5 percent.

Additionally, in Planned Parenthood's 2013-2014 Annual Report they reported more than $127 million in excess revenue and more than $1.4 billion in net assets.
