Schumer Statement On Trump Admin’s Proposal to Restrict Access To Funding For Women’s Health

May 22, 2018

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding the Trump administration’s new restrictions to restrict access to funding for women’s health:

“With this proposal, President Trump is standing right between millions of American women and their doctors. Restricting which doctors and health care providers can get these vital funds will prevent far too many women from getting the medical care that they deserve, all so that Republicans can continue their war against Planned Parenthood and women’s reproductive rights. I encourage all Americans who stand up for women’s rights to make their voices heard and submit comments to HHS in opposition of this dangerous proposal.”
