WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Roger Williams (R-Texas) today signed a letter to House leadership stating that he will not support a government funding bill that contains funding for Planned Parenthood.

The letter, authored by Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.), was sent to Speaker of the House John Boehner, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Majority Whip Steve Scalise.

“The recent allegations against Planned Parenthood are morally reprehensible,” said Williams. “There is no justification for the American people to finance an organization that has such disregard for human life.”

Last month, Williams called for the defunding of Planned Parenthood while visiting the Austin Pregnancy Resource Center.

“The Austin Pregnancy Resource Center respects and protects the sanctity of life – plain and simple,” said Williams. “Organizations like this one are what we should be rooting for.”
