Wasserman Schultz Statement on New Abortion Clinic Violence Report

U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) issued the following statement today after the National Abortion Federation (NAF) released their “2015 Violence and Disruption Statistics” report:

“Today’s deeply alarming report from the National Abortion Federation shows that women’s health care, and those who practice it, are in danger. The violent and gravely irresponsible rhetoric that was a trademark of Republicans’ investigations of Planned Parenthood manifested itself in the tragic murders of three people at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic last November. Those murders, and nearly 100 other specific threats catalogued in last year’s report, makes crystal clear the fact that anti-abortion extremists are threatening the lives of women’s health care providers everywhere. It would be very unsafe and harmful for the House Select Investigative Panel on Planned Parenthood to force abortion providers to produce names and other personal information of clinic personnel, and I call on Speaker Ryan to immediately cease this baseless and dangerous witch hunt.”
