Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Congresswoman Renee Ellmers released the following statement from her office in Washington this afternoon:

"I am deeply disappointed in the sudden reversal by the Komen Foundation of their original pledge to cut ties with Planned Parenthood - the nation's largest abortion provider. Their original stance to stop funding pending an important congressional investigation was an act of courage and prudence, making their sudden reversal today appear hollow and weak."

"As a nurse and mother, I will continue to champion the sanctity of life and women's health, regardless of contemporary trends…and sometimes that takes the courage to do what is right, not what is convenient."
