McMorris Rodgers on Planned Parenthood Video Admissions: “Disturbing” and “Illegal”

“The practices described are not only disturbing—they’re illegal.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement after video footage surfaced featuring Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services detailing atrocious abortion practices.

“The admissions by Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director for Medical Services, in the recent undercover video go beyond a debate over pro-life vs. pro-choice. This is a matter of following the law. The practices described are not only disturbing—they’re illegal.

“Women’s health is a priority, and it is unacceptable and unconscionable to exploit the need for health care for profit. As a mother, as a woman, and as an American, I applaud Chairman Upton for launching an investigation into Planned Parenthood’s practices and procedures.”
