Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
43Rd Anniversary Of Roe V. Wade Decision January 21, 2016
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"This crusade is also about denying access to family planning. Yes, in the year 2016, Republicans and their extreme allies are still on a crusade against contraception, which the Supreme Court deemed legal 50 years ago."
Providing For Consideration Of Senate Amendment To H.R. 3762, Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act Of 2015 January 6, 2016
Jerrold Nadler, D-NY
"The longer the Republicans keep up this pretense in order to stoke the flames with their inflammatory rhetoric, the longer they put patients and providers at risk of unstable people committing murder, as we have seen at abortion clinics. Bulletproof glass and safe rooms should not be necessary for women to access basic health care like cancer screenings or contraception, but if this farcical attack on Planned Parenthood doesn’t stop, that would be the norm for women around the country. You want a breast exam, you want contraception, you put your life at risk."
Condemning The Ongoing Sexual Violence Against Women And Children From Yezidi, Christian, Shabak, Turkmen, And Other Religious Communities By Islamic State Of Iraq And Syria Militants December 16, 2015
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"The horrific and despicable actions of ISIL against women and girls who were kidnapped, enslaved, tortured, raped, and impregnated in conflict-affected regions there and others around the world are one of the horrors of terrorism. This resolution addresses it, but it could and should have gone much further. In fact, it lacks the recognition of the full range of support that Yezidi survivors of sexual violence desperately need. That is the reason that I offered two amendments to improve this important resolution, to urge the President to exercise his existing authority. No new author is necessary for him to provide and support age-appropriate, comprehensive post-violence care, including the provision of treatment to prevent HIV infection, trauma and surgical care, mental health services, social and legal support, and a full range of medically necessary reproductive health services, including emergency contraception, safe abortion care, and maternal health services."
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."
