Obama vetoes expansion of health care options for women

Friday, January 08, 2016

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Casey Mattox regarding President Obama’s veto Friday of a budget reconciliation bill that included a provision terminating federal funding for Planned Parenthood and redirecting those funds to more comprehensive community health care providers:

“The president has chosen to continue funding for the abortion giant that helped get him elected rather than expand health care choices for women. All he has done is kill an historic bill that would have redirected existing funding from the scandal-plagued Planned Parenthood to thousands of better, low-cost community health care providers that serve women and families far more comprehensively. It is past time to end the government’s immoral partnership with Planned Parenthood that has been forced upon the American people.” (#DefundPP)
