Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) today released the following statement after the House passed the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 3504) and the Defund Planned Parenthood Act (H.R. 3134):
“Unborn lives matter, and I am frankly disgusted by Planned Parenthood’s unethical actions and continuously callous tone. As the House continues to investigate this egregious, potentially illegal behavior, we should not provide federal funds to such an organization. As a staunch defender of life, I am also proud to support stronger legal protections for children who are born alive having survived an abortion. I will continue to fight to protect the most vulnerable among us – the unborn.”
Congressman Steve Womack has represented Arkansas’s Third Congressional District since 2011 and serves on the House Appropriations Defense, Financial Services and General Government, and Labor-Health and Human Services subcommittees and the House Committee on the Budget.
