Rep. John Moolenaar's Speech on Restoring Taxpayer Trust and Improving Funding for Better Health Care

September 17, 2015

Representative John Moolenaar (R-Midland) speaks on the House floor about the videos that depcit horrible practices at Planned Parenthood and supports increased funding for health care clinics that provide better services for women and children.

On social media, a new generation of parents and grandparents are sharing the joy of new life, posting pictures of baby bumps and sonograms for friends and family to view.

Now, more than ever, it’s easier to see and understand that an unborn child in the womb is a person with tiny toes and fingers and a heartbeat, created equal and entitled to inalienable rights.

However, recent events have demonstrated that these rights are being violated and that the public’s trust has been betrayed. Millions of taxpayer dollars have supported the horrific practice of allowing babies to be taken apart, dismantled and sold piece-by-piece.

In response, House investigations are underway and more needs to be done to protect our must vulnerable citizens.

House Resolution 3134 restores trust for American taxpayers. It provides more funding for qualified health centers that offer pediatric care, immunizations, mammograms and more life-saving health care services that protect mother and child.

These better options are worthy of taxpayer funding and will make a positive difference for women and children across our country.

Thank you.
