‘Defund Planned Parenthood Act’ Deserves Presidential Veto

In response to the House passage of the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-04) issued the following statement:

By - Sep 18th, 2015 02:54 pm

“The Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015 – a bill that will never become law – is an immense waste of time and taxpayer money. Rather than working on ways to strengthen the middle class and help elevate low-income families out of poverty, conservatives have once again mounted another baseless attack against an organization that serves 2.7 million Americans each year with lifesaving services like breast cancer screenings and pap tests.

“Those seeking vital family planning services and information face limited options and an abundance of political obstacles, making this bill all the more egregious. I am appalled by this ongoing Republican effort to restrict access to critical sexual and reproductive health care for millions of men and women. Their reckless disregard for the quality of life and well-being for low-income women and families is as shameful as it is spiteful and has no place in our government or society.

“I commend President Obama for his pledge to veto this dangerous piece of legislation and for standing with us as we stand united with Planned Parenthood.”

  1. Wisconsin Conservative Digest says:

    Sure Gwen 80% of kids aborted in NY are black. Is that really what you want. Black babies being sacrificed for baby parts to save white people.

  2. Brisls says:

    It doesn’t matter what the situation is, they could propose public beheadings, and Gwen Moore would support OBama if OBama said “so be it”>

  3. Tim says:

    I personally am hoping do-nothing republicans pass another bill to repeal Obamacare, maybe the 122nd time is the charm.

    Or it could be that republicans don’t want to solve any problems, just grandstand and collect campaign checks. Forget the rhetoric, what are they actually doing? Nothing.

  4. Paul says:

    Tim, getting rid of the ACA would be a great start at solving problems.

  5. Dave says:

    “Tim, getting rid of the ACA would be a great start at solving problems.”

    Good point. It’s a travesty how the ACA has increased the number of uninsured Americans, allowed insurance companies to deny coverage based on preexisting conditions and hundreds of thousands of people in financial ruin because they couldn’t afford coverage.

  6. Paul says:

    Dave, number of uninsured will be near the same if not greater, with the increasing monthly premiums and deductibles. It was all about raising taxes and taking away personal freedoms.

  7. Dave says:

    I guess we should go single payer, then, right?
