Tim Kaine statement on his vote against defunding Planned Parenthood

tim kaine-newU.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement after voting against legislation to prohibit federal funding for Planned Parenthood.

“For many women and families across the country, Planned Parenthood health centers are their only source of high quality health care. That’s why I voted against legislation that would deny more than 2.5 million Americans important primary care services. For years, activist groups like the Center for Medical Progress have sought to create controversy around Planned Parenthood as a way to reduce women’s access to health care. While the recent videos released by this group highlight a troubling lack of sensitivity on the part of a few individuals, moving to unilaterally defund Planned Parenthood is not the appropriate reaction.”
