Rep. Gosar: Explaining vote to de-fund Planned Parenthood

The House of Representatives has taken a stand against Planned Parenthood and its heinous practice of trafficking human body parts for profit. Taxpayer dollars should not be used to facilitate abortions or for any of the atrocities that Planned Parenthood commits against unborn children. Women’s health is vitally important and H.R. 3134 redirects funds from Planned Parenthood to community health centers that provide important services for women but do not perform hundreds of thousands of abortions every year.

Furthermore, children who are born alive deserve immediate treatment and care. Any health care practitioner who doesn’t provide such care or any individual who causes harm to the child should face criminal penalties. H.R. 3504 is just commonsense and I was proud to fight to protect the lives of innocent babies today.
