Donnelly: "Indiana Planned Parenthood Running the Right Way"

Senator Joe Donnelly said his vote to defund Planned Parenthood was focused on his concern with what going on in other states, not in Indiana. His vote, he said was to delay funding until all the facts were in regarding possible illegal activities.

Donnelly said, “I was concerned that all of the monies would be spent in the right way. Indiana, our Planned Parenthood is running it in the right way, that they were investigated and came through with no problems at all. We have concerns about other parts of the country, and so my job is to stand up for all Hoosiers and for everybody around the country. And I want to make sure we get that right first.”

The bill to deny all federal funding to Planned Parenthood failed in the Senate.
