Daines: Fight to Defend Life, Protect Women’s Health Care Services Is Not Over

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senator Steve Daines today reiterated his call to redirect funds away from Planned Parenthood while reaffirming his dedication to fully funding women’s health care services:

“Today, I voted to reaffirm my dedication to protecting women’s health while removing funds from a scandal-plagued organization that has been caught selling human baby parts. I cannot support an organization that would place a dollar amount on a baby’s body parts. The fight to protect women’s health care, while redirecting funds away from Planned Parenthood, is not over. I will continue working vigorously to defend life and protect the most vulnerable in our society: the unborn.”

Earlier this evening, Senator Daines joined Senators Joni Ernst (R-IA), James Lankford (R-OK), Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and Rand Paul (R-KY) in speaking about the importance of safeguarding women’s health services while defunding Planned Parenthood.
