(Washington, DC) – Representative Daniel Webster (FL-10) issued the following statement today after voting in support of H. R. 3134, the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015:

“A series of horrifying video footage has recently emerged that appears to indicate Planned Parenthood has been participating in the heinous and illegal transfer of aborted body parts for profit. While these reports have brought into question the legality of Planned Parenthood’s procedures, the videos have also exposed the brutality of the abortion process and highlighted the humanity of unborn children.

“House committees have initiated an investigation into Planned Parenthood on the alleged harvest of aborted babies’ body parts. Meanwhile, I voted today to suspend all federal taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood and redirect these allocated funds to other Federally Qualified Health Centers that provide quality services for women’s health.”
