Whereas, Planned Parenthood receives over $500 million dollars a year in taxpayer funds; and
Whereas, Planned Parenthood has been exposed nationally on video for harvesting human organs and trafficking in human organs, and
Whereas, the Republican Party stands for fiscal responsibility and accountability in government; and
Whereas, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) along with Senators Rand Paul (R-KY), James Lankford (R-OK) and 21 cosponsors introduced legislation to protect women’s health and defund Planned Parenthood, S. 1881; Now, therefore be it
Resolved, that the California Republican Party supports congressional leadership in its legislative efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.
Submitted by: Aaron Park
The delegates of the California Republican Party also adopted a solidly pro-life platform.
