Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act Of 2015 October 23, 2015
Frank Pallone, D-NJ
"I can never support any legislation of any kind that would leave millions of American women without key preventative health services, including birth control, lifesaving cancer screenings, STI testing and treatment, well-woman exams, and advice on family planning. Federal rules protect the right of Medicaid beneficiaries to seek care from trusted and medically qualified providers of their choosing."
Providing For Consideration Of Establishing A Select Investigative Panel Of The Committee On Energy And Commerce October 7, 2015
Barbara Lee, D-CA
"Mr. Speaker, enough is enough. We know that Planned Parenthood centers are critical to the health of women all across the country. One in five women have used Planned Parenthood services at some point in her lifetime for vital services like birth control, lifesaving cancer screenings, and STI screenings."
Directing The Clerk Of The House Of Representatives To Make Corrections In The Enrollment Of H.R. 719 September 30, 2015
Nita Lowey, D-NY
"Planned Parenthood provides essential preventive health services, including birth control, lifesaving cancer screenings, well-women exams, and advice on family planning to nearly 3 million women each year."
21St Century Women’S Health Act September 30, 2015
Suzanne Bonamici, D-OR
"This comprehensive bill will increase access to preventative health services and contraception for low-income women, and it will help women report instances of inappropriate charges for birth control, a problem that affects too many women across the country. It will also expand the primary care workforce and ensure that survivors of sexual assault are provided with free emergency contraception and compassionate care."
Expressing Opposition To H.R. 3504 And H.R. 3134 September 25, 2015
Adam Smith, D-WA
"Anti-choice rhetoric and controversy has surrounded federal funding for Planned Parenthood because about three percent of the services they provide include abortion services. Current law already denies Medicaid coverage for these services by almost completely barring federal funding, except in very limited circumstances. Ninety percent of the services Planned Parenthood provides are preventative health services, including lifesaving cancer screenings, blood pressure checks, birth control, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections, and educational efforts to avoid unwanted pregnancies and prevent abortions. Failing to fund Planned Parenthood will greatly diminish access to these services for low income women, men, and families in need of affordable healthcare and preventative screenings."
