WASHINGTON D.C. – Rep. Jackie Walorski (IN-02) issued the following statement regarding the Center for Medical Progress’ video depicting Planned Parenthood Federation Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, discussing fetal dismemberment and the selling of unborn children’s organs and limbs:
“I am thoroughly disgusted that Planned Parenthood, the country’s largest abortion provider, would engage in selling baby body parts. As a former state legislator, I’ve continually voted to protect the sanctity of life by defunding Planned Parenthood. In addition, I’m also an original cosponsor of legislation to prohibit any federal funds from going to organizations, like Planned Parenthood, that provide abortions. It’s completely inhumane that anyone would want to profit from the death of children, first by dismembering them and then by selling their organs piece by piece. This horrific abuse demands a response from Congress immediately.”
Walorski is an original cosponsor of H.R. 217, the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act which would prevent Title X federal grants from going to abortion providers.
Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District in Indiana, where she serves as a member of the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee, House Armed Services Committee, and House Committee on Agriculture.
