Sam Johnson Opposes Budget that Fails to Defund Planned Parenthood
Washington, D.C. – On behalf of Collin County constituents and in keeping with his Pro-Life record, U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) voted against H.R. 719, the Continuing Resolution for FY2016, because it failed to defund Planned Parenthood. Prior to the final vote on H.R. 719, Congressman Johnson supported H.Con.Res.79, a measure to defund Planned Parenthood.
After casting these Pro-Life votes, Johnson released the following statement:
“As a proud champion of Life, one of my priorities has been to permanently defund Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider. With the revelation that this organization has been harvesting and selling aborted babies’ body parts and organs, it is clearer than ever that Planned Parenthood must be defunded. As a Christian, father, and grandfather, I believe ALL Life is precious and sacred and must be protected.”
