Snowe & Collins Stand with Planned Parenthood
Federal Attacks on Women’s Health
Senator Collins and Senator Snowe both say defunding Planned Parenthood is going “too far.”
This week, Senator Collins sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader McConnell. Senator Snowe said:
“As we tackle wasteful spending and continue to create jobs, we must be careful not to eliminate programs that are successful, cost-effective, and critical to the livelihood of our most vulnerable citizens.”
Senator Olympia Snowe has said she disagrees with defunding Planned Parenthood and Title X. Here’s what the Senator said in the New York Times:
“As a champion of women’s health, I have supported access to family planning and women’s health services throughout my career. While confronting our serious economic challenges and fiscal realities will require difficult decisions to reach more sustainable levels of government spending, the outright elimination of funding for Planned Parenthood and Title X is a step too far and would have a significant impact on access to the preventive services and screenings that have benefited millions of women nationwide.”
Thank you, Senator Collins and Senator Snowe for your support with this legislation!
