McConnell: Congress passed a bill to defund Planned Parenthood. President Obama vetoed it. Donald Trump would sign it.

 

Donald Trump has said multiple times that he would block access to Planned Parenthood health centers — even saying he would shut down the government in order to do so (a position pioneered by his running mate, Mike Pence).

 

McConnell tonight doubled down on that position: If Trump is president, he will work with Republicans to block access to health care services like cancer screening, STI testing, and birth control at Planned Parenthood.
