Congressman Dan Benishek (MI-01) today released the following statement:
"I proudly voted today for H.R. 3, a measure that will prevent taxpayer funds being used for abortion procedures. I, like so many of my Northern Michigan neighbors, think neither the federal government nor federal tax dollars should be involved in this very controversial and intensely personal issue. I will continue to support such measures that protect the unborn as I believe this position reflects the values of the majority of Northern Michigan voters who sent me to Washington to represent them."
