The right to life and pursuit of happiness are protected by our Constitution and are part of the very framework of the Declaration of Independence. That is why I am thrilled to have a senator like Steve Daines who understands the importance of protecting the most vulnerable of our society—the unborn—as well as making essential medical services available to Montana women.
I’m proud to have a senator who wants to take the funds designated for Planned Parenthood and redirect them toward community health centers at the same funding level. These community health centers currently provide more services for women than Planned Parenthood does, including important services like mammograms. And they are more accessible since there are 26 community health clinics for every Planned Parenthood in the state of Montana. In addition to better accessibility, these community health centers are more efficient and more cost effective. I urge you to support Daines in his efforts to protect the unborn as well as assure the women of Montana they will have affordable access to essential medical services.
