Senator Murray on GOP Plan to Defund Planned Parenthood in Affordable Care Act Repeal

(Washington, D.C.) — Today, Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Ranking Member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, released the following statement after Republican leadership announced the reconciliation bill dismantling the Affordable Care Act would also include measures to defund Planned Parenthood.


“I condemn in the strongest terms Republican attempts to pull the rug out from under millions of women and men nationwide who rely on Planned Parenthood as a trusted medical provider—and so should every elected official who truly cares about the health of the people they serve. To Republicans who want to go down this deeply harmful and partisan path, you’ve been warned: Democrats are ready to fight back every step of the way.”
