Republican Senators Mark Kirk And Susan Collins Say They Will OPPOSE Bill to Defund Planned Parenthood
These two RINOs need to go.
Via The Hill:
Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) on Wednesday indicated he’ll oppose a bill backed by Republican leadership to defund Planned Parenthood.
Kirk is up for reelection next year and is a top Democratic target.
“In other states tissue donation programs should be investigated but in Illinois there is no similar program,” Kirk said in a statement to The Hill. “I do not plan to cut access to basic health care and contraception for women, the majority of whom have no other resources.”
Kirk is the second Republican senator to indicate opposition to the bill.
“I’m still looking at the bill, but if it is an immediate defunding of Planned Parenthood before we have more facts in, then I would likely oppose the amendment,” Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) told reporters Wednesday.
Many Senate Republicans, though, have been touting the bill and pressuring Democrats to support it.
Three controversial undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood officials candidly discussing the price of fetal tissue for medical research have sparked outrage.
