Joe Wilson, Sr.'s Public Statements on Issue: Abortion

Office: U.S. House (SC) - District 2, Republican
Date Title
Sept. 18, 2015 Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement after voting in favor of H.R. 3134, the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015: "I was sickened after watching the videos of Planned Parenthood officials appearing to discuss the sale of aborted babies for profit. I was further disappointed after an inspection of the Midlands Planned Parenthood clinic revealed multiple health violations. The Defund Planned Parenthood Act defunds Planned Parenthood and redirects taxpayer dollars to qualified health centers that prioritize patient care, share our values, and have respect for life," Wilson said. "I am dedicated to protecting the sanctity of life." Congressman Wilson is a co-sponsor of the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015, which passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 241 to 187. Wilson also voted in favor of H.R. 3504, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which passed the House by a vote of 248 to 177.
