“This afternoon’s hearing in the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and the two bills members will consider at it, are the latest in a shameful series of unfounded, outrageous attacks on women’s health.
With each hearing organized by extremists, each attempt to defund women’s health services, and each reference to the deceptive, discredited videos designed to mislead people about Planned Parenthood’s essential work, the House leadership demonstrates that it is utterly out of touch with women and families in this country.
Planned Parenthood is a trusted provider with a proud track record of providing high-quality health care. Defunding Planning Parenthood would deny millions of people critically important preventive care, including contraception and cancer screenings.
Quite simply, attacks on Planned Parenthood are attacks on women’s health.
Instead of this folly, lawmakers should be focused on improving the quality and value of health care, making our country’s workplaces more fair and family friendly, and putting real economic security within reach for every family.”
