KOOTENAI COUNTY, Idaho – Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest and Hawaii (PPVNH) released the following statement after Representative Vito Barbieri threatened violence against Planned Parenthood in Boise. 

Statement from Mistie Tolman, Idaho State Director for PPVNH: 

“We are living in a time with heightened partisanship, and anti-abortion sentiment from the Trump Administration on down to our local statehouses. The comments Rep. Barbieri made today, ‘I don’t know why Planned Parenthood hasn’t been nuked off of State Street, yet...’ are deeply concerning and we demand he take responsibility for this harmful language. Planned Parenthood has long been a target of anti-abortion violence, and comments like these only further incite violence. Anti-abortion violence is single-issue terrorism, and anti-abortion extremists are considered a domestic terrorist threat by the U.S. Department of Justice. 

“This statement comes on the heels of some of the most harmful and cruel attacks by the Republican-led legislature on reproductive health and the LGBTQ community, only making comments like these that much more serious.”
