McCaul Statement on Planned Parenthood Funding Vote

WASHINGTON, DC– Today following the House vote to withdraw taxpayer money from Planned Parenthood, Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX) made the following statement:

McCaul: "327,653. That is the number of abortions Planned Parenthood conducted in 2014. Planned Parenthood is proud of this number, saying ‘we’ve come a long way…’ Over the past few months, the American people have witnessed the release of increasingly disturbing series of videos exposing some of the barbaric practices and procedures conducted by Planned Parenthood. I am horrified by these morally reprehensible videos and by Planned Parenthood’s actions. Not one single dime of taxpayer money should be given to fund an organization that has zero regard for human life. I call on the Senate and President Obama to join with the House and do the right thing, defund Planned Parenthood today."
