AWFUL: Alaska GOPe Senator Lisa Murkowski “Committed” To Funding Planned Parenthood

Despite clear evidence and grotesque descriptions of the way that Planned Parenthood rips limbs from babies still in the womb and then sells the baby parts for profit, pseudo-Republican Lisa Murkowski vows to fight for American taxpayers to fund the Planned Parenthood baby parts factory.

Politico reports:

Sen. Lisa Murkowski has assured an Alaska constituent that she’s committed to preserving Planned Parenthood funding as part of a health care bill — the strongest line she’s drawn yet over one of the most controversial elements of the Obamacare repeal effort.

“I am committed to ensuring that important provisions of the ACA, such as covering those with pre-existing conditions, continued support for Medicaid expansion, coverage for dependents and no lifetime limits, and funding for Planned Parenthood remain intact,” Murkowski wrote in the constituent letter obtained by POLITICO.

. . . . Murkowski repeated that she wouldn’t make a promise on a bill she hasn’t seen. Instead, she said she is a “strong proponent [of Planned Parenthood] and I will fight to keep the funding in. I can’t make promises or representations on bills that I don’t know the contents of. I guess I’d have to see. But I have been solid on Planned Parenthood. It’s all about access.”

. . . . Murkowski told POLITICO that she supports funding the organization “because what that does is it provides greater access for more women, more men and in my state, anything that you do to reduce access is a bad thing.”

She’s not repeating the proven lie that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms; instead, she supports Planned Parenthood while understanding exactly what it is they do.  She’s a disgrace.
