IL-Sen: Tammy Duckworth (D) Fights Back Against The GOP's Plan To Defund Planned Parenthood

Will Sen. Mark Kirk (R. IL) vote to defund Planned Parenthood?

Received this e-mail from Rep. Tammy Duckworth's (D. IL) U.S. Senate campaign:

We’ve gotten word that in response to recent misleading attacks on Planned Parenthood, the Senate could vote on a bill to defund the organization as early as tomorrow.


I’ve joined several of my Democratic colleagues in Congress to organize urgent support for Planned Parenthood and stop this partisan GOP attempt to defund its important work.

Add your name now: tell Congress not to defund Planned Parenthood.


The latest accusations facing Planned Parenthood are part of a deliberate smear campaign that’s intended to sabotage the organization’s mission and that is putting essential health care for millions of women at risk.


One in five American women have relied on Planned Parenthood for cancer screenings, access to birth control, fertility testing and more. I’m one of them - I turned to Planned Parenthood for my health care needs as a college student.


It’s disgraceful that Republicans are subjecting this health care to political games. Already, Republican Senators have tried to derail a bill that would provide fertility treatments for Veterans over Planned Parenthood funding.


As a wounded Veteran who would not have given birth to my baby daughter without in vitro fertilization, I’m furious that Republicans are letting an ideological agenda stand in the way of caring for our Vets.


It’s time to put a stop to the GOP smear campaign against Planned Parenthood. Sign the petition now:


Thank you for speaking up,
