WEBER PRAISES PASSAGE OF H.J. Res 43
WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Randy Weber (TX-14) today praised the passage of H.J. Res. 43, which passed the House with a vote of 230 to 188. This legislation overturns the Obama Administration’s midnight rule directing funds to abortion providers, like Planned Parenthood.
“I applaud Chairman Diane Black and my colleagues for standing up for women and their babies,” Weber said. “In my district, over 30 clinics are committed to supporting women in both during and immediately after pregnancy. In particular, low-income women receive support in maternity homes, acquire referrals to community assistance and social service programs like child-care. They also may take advantage of classes on life skills, budgeting, parenting, stress management and GED preparation. I am proud that H.J. Res. 43 supports integral programs that not only support mothers, but also help support their babies to ensure that both parties receive the care that they deserve.”
