Sen. Scott Brown, R-MA, is one of the only Senate Republicans who favor legal abortion. So today’s news that he will vote to keep tax money for Planned Parenthood is not shocking, but it is still disappointing.
Catholics, especially in Massachusetts, can let their voices be heard by calling Senator Brown’s office at (202) 224-4543.
Here’s the statement that Senator Brown issued today:
“I support family planning and health services for women. Given our severe budget problems, I don’t believe any area of the budget is completely immune from cuts,” he said. “However, the proposal to eliminate all funding for family planning goes too far. As we continue with our budget negotiations, I hope we can find a compromise that is reasonable and appropriate.”
Except it isn’t reasonable or appropriate to give this notorious organization another dime.
