Press Statement by Patricia McGeown, UHPP President/CEO
It's an outrage to shutdown the government over an extreme proposal that denies millions of women pap tests, breast exams and birth control.
Attacking planned parenthood's preventive care hurts women, doesn't cut the deficit or fix the economy, and must be stopped.
