Murray Slams President Trump’s Proposed Budget Attacking Women's Health, Planned Parenthood

 

Latest proposal by President Trump includes the largest cuts yet proposed to Planned Parenthood

 

Murray: “It’s clear as day that undermining women’s reproductive health and rights is a centerpiece of President Trump’s harmful plan for our health care system”

 

(Washington, D.C.) – Today Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) issued the following statement on President Trump’s budget proposal released this morning:

 

“With this budget plan, it’s clear as day that undermining women’s reproductive health and rights is a centerpiece of President Trump’s harmful plan for our health care system. By slashing key investments in health services that women rely on, including the largest cuts yet proposed to Planned Parenthood, President Trump’s budget doubles down on extreme Republican efforts to interfere with women’s personal health decisions and attacks women’s health in just about every way possible. To my Republican colleagues who decide to stand by this budget, you’ve been warned: Democrats are ready to fight back every step of the way.”
