Donald Trump –– Just Like Every GOP Candidate––  Would Block Over a Million People from Care at Planned Parenthood


Washington, DC –– Tonight, Marco Rubio attacked Donald Trump for his positive comments about women’s health, ignoring the fact that Trump, Cruz, Rubio and Kasich all have the same approach to women’s health care. Marco Rubio, Donald Trump, and every other GOP candidate on stage, would ban abortion, block over a million people from access to birth control, cancer screenings, and STI testing at Planned Parenthood, and slash insurance coverage of birth control.
