Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Washington Is Out Of Step With America October 8, 2015
Luis Gutierrez, D-IL
"In many cases, Planned Parenthood is the only source of affordable and accessible reproductive health care, contraception, HIV and STD testing, cancer screenings, and basic health care for women."
Providing For Consideration Of Establishing A Select Investigative Panel Of The Committee On Energy And Commerce October 7, 2015
Jan Schakowsky, D-IL
"Now, let’s talk about the Republican vision for women of America. Just look at their record. First, they passed a budget that completely eliminated title X—that is contraception—the only Federal grant program dedicated to family planning, and slashed funding by 80 percent for the teen pregnancy initiative by over 80 percent."
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."
Directing The Clerk Of The House Of Representatives To Make Corrections In The Enrollment Of H.R. 719 September 30, 2015
Alma Adams, D-NC
"I stand with Planned Parenthood for the services they provide. Last year, they served more than 2.7 million across our Nation, and more than 31,000 in North Carolina just through nine centers. More than 21,000 patients received safe contraception; more than 18,000 STI tests were conducted, and more than 3,500 Pap tests and more than 2,500 breast exams. Real women getting real preventive care."
Defund Planned Parenthood Act Of 2015 September 24, 2015
Keith Ellison, D-MN
"Not only would defunding Planned Parenthood create barriers to accessing care, but it would limit the ability of women to achieve economic security. A recent Guttmacher Institute study showed that access to contraception helped women complete their education, keep or get a job, and take better care of their families. For example, the children of mothers who had access to contraception have higher family incomes and college completion rates. Moreover, research also shows that access to birth control contributed in a 30 percent rise in the number of women in skilled careers between 1970 and 1990. The positive effects of widespread access to reproductive and primary care services for women, families and Americans is immeasurable."
