Mainstream Republicans Fight for Family PlanningPosted: September 21, 2015
Rather than focusing on policies that will help put American families back on track, anti-choice members of the U.S. House of Representatives have once again shown how little they understand the economic impact of access to preventive health care.
On Friday the House voted to block all federal funding for all Planned Parenthoods unless the reproductive health provider stops offering abortion services. It is already federal law that NO federal funds can be used for abortion so this cut would only effect the preventive health care for millions of families.
Mainstream Republicans fought back working to again bridge the gap between the extreme wings of both parties.
Congressmen Charlie Dent (PA-15), Robert Dold (IL-10), and Richard Hanna (NY-22) understand the critical importance of reproductive healthcare for all women and families and voted to protect Planned Parenthood funding.
As Real Republicans, we know investing in family planning programs has social and economic benefits for all Americans. Just one dollar invested in contraceptive care saves over $7 in TAXPAYER dollars. It’s time for our political leaders to stop using women’s health to score political points and put families first.
Said Congressman Hanna this week, “The American people are fed up with inaction and political theater. So am I. Washington needs to grow up, stop deceiving the American people and do its job.”
We couldn’t agree more.
