Collins: "Defund Planned Parenthood Now"

Collins: “Defund Planned Parenthood Now”

WASHINGTON—Today, Congressman Doug Collins (R-Ga.) issued the following statement in response to the surfacing of a second video showing a doctor affiliated with Planned Parenthood negotiating the sale of the bodies of aborted babies.

“This is truly sickening. For years, Planned Parenthood has had questionable practices, both morally and medically. Now there is proof of activity that is not only unethical, but also illegal. As the father of three children, we have no greater responsibility as human beings than protecting life. It is profoundly unsettling that both videos depict doctors casually sitting around dinner tables sipping drinks while they talk about the business of selling the organs of unborn babies. Planned Parenthood should be defunded of all the taxpayer dollars it receives, and fully investigated for illegal activity.

“I am a co-sponsor of the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, and the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act, which withholds taxpayer funds from organizations that perform abortions. As a member of the Judiciary Committee, I will be following this issue closely as Congressional hearings are held in the coming months.”
