Senator David Perdue Calls To Defund Planned Parenthood

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today issued the following statement regarding the release of additional undercover videos about Planned Parenthood:

“These gut-wrenching videos underscore the serious nature of the situation. As a parent, and now grandparent, I find these actions unthinkable. Planned Parenthood should not receive any federal funding, period. I will continue defending life and I join many Georgians and Americans in calling for an immediate investigation of these disturbing actions.”

Last week, Senator Perdue, along with 49 other senators, sent a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell to highlight the legal, ethical, and policy issues raised by the footage. Senator Perdue also called on Secretary Burwell to cooperate with ongoing and future investigations, including Georgia’s joint review of clinics in the state.
