Cornyn: Fund Community Health Centers, Not Planned Parenthood

Today, I spoke on the Senate floor ahead of a vote to redirect federal funding from Planned Parenthood. Excerpts of my remarks are below.

Our collective conscience was shocked by videos depicting Planned Parenthood executives discussing the harvesting and sale of the organs of unborn babies, an abhorrent, disgusting practice that we cannot ignore. Perhaps the only thing more shocking… is the cavalier attitude by the Planned Parenthood staff who seem to have sacrificed their humanity and show so little regard for the sanctity of human life. What was shown in these videos is an outrage, and it demands our action.

We would actually redirect the money to ensure that taxpayer dollars that once went to Planned Parenthood now go to provide for women's health, like in thousands of community health centers across the country.

An organization that so callously reduces our most vulnerable to spare parts for sale has no business receiving any money from the federal taxpayers.

If your conscience is shocked by the footage in these videos, I really can't see how anybody could possibly vote ‘No’ on this legislation.

Today we have a chance on behalf of the American people, the people we collectively represent, to act and to act in a way that protects the most vulnerable.
