WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Rand Paul announced today his intention to demand a vote in the U.S. Senate to eliminate taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood. In the coming week, Sen. Paul will seek legislative action that will block taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood, an average of nearly $500 million annually. Sen. Paul will use all legislative vehicles at his disposal in order to ensure there is immediate action on this proposal.
“The continued disregard and disrespect for human life at Planned Parenthood, a partially taxpayer-funded organization, is shocking and appalling. Recent video revelations, involving potentially criminal activity, make it more obvious than ever that this organization has absolutely zero respect for the sanctity of human life and is an affront to the most basic human dignity enshrined in our founding documents. Not one more taxpayer dollar should go to Planned Parenthood and I intend to make that goal a reality,” Sen. Paul said.
