Press Release


WASHINGTON -- Congressman Bruce Westerman (R-Hot Springs) issued the following statement Friday (September 18) following his vote for the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015.

"For far too long, our tax dollars have been financing abortion at the hands of Planned Parenthood. As recent videos have shown, the organization is engaged not only in abortion but other deplorable acts. That is why I co-sponsored and voted for the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015 and will work to defund the organization that places more value in the selling of body parts of babies than the health of women.“
