For Immediate Release: 09.11.15

Today, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announced that next week, the House will vote on two bills intended to target Planned Parenthood and reproductive health care providers across the country.

Eric Ferrero, Vice President of Communications for Planned Parenthood Action Fund, released the following statement:

“Now that the false claims against Planned Parenthood have fallen apart, politicians are heartlessly scrambling to attack women’s access to health care however they can. It’s clear those behind these attacks have always had a clear agenda: to ban abortion, and cut millions of women and men across the country from necessary reproductive health care. They’re continuing to push that agenda no matter how many they hurt in the process.”
