Helena – Back in October, during a debate for his failed campaign for Governor, Congressman Greg Gianforte was asked twice by MTN’s Mike Dennison whether he supported restricting women’s access to abortion or rejecting Title X Family Planning funding. Gianforte refused to answer each time.
Well, today, Gianforte finally answered Dennison’s questions when he voted for a government spending bill that not only prohibits funding to Planned Parenthood, but also eliminates funding for the Title X Family Planning Program.
“Today, Greg Gianforte voted with his party bosses in Washington to severely restrict the ability of Montana women to make their own health care decisions,” said Nancy Keenan, Executive Director of the Montana Democratic Party.“He didn’t want to admit it back in October, but today’s vote only confirms what Montanans already knew: Greg Gianforte’s extreme record on women’s health is dangerous and out of touch with our Montana values.”
There are 25 Title X Family Planning Clinics in Montana that provide a range of health, family planning, counseling, and education services.
