Washington D.C. – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 3134, the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015; and H.R. 3504, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. Congressman Jody B. Hice (R-GA) released the following statements in regards to the passage of the measures:

“Planned Parenthood’s practice of selling baby body parts for profit is abhorrent, and I was more than happy to lend my support to H.R. 3134 which defunds Planned Parenthood until ongoing investigations have been completed. The horrific videos we’ve witnessed have cast a light onto the shadowy practices of Planned Parenthood that the world cannot ignore. The Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015 stems the tide of taxpayer money being utilized to fund the trafficking of the body parts of the unborn.  We will continue to fight for citizens who don’t want their tax dollars being spent on this tragic practice.

Additionally, while we work towards furthering the culture of life; we must stand up for the defenseless babies that are at the highest risk of execution. The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act ensures that babies born alive despite the parent’s attempted abortion will enjoy the same rights as any other child. Furthermore, this measure imposes criminal fines and prison time for those who do not follow the law by admitting the child to a hospital. Today was a victory in the pro-life community. I look forward to using every tool available in order to permanently defund a morally-bankrupt institution like Planned Parenthood and continuing to fight for the rights of unborn babies everywhere.”

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help constituents work through issues with federal agencies. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a constituent’s behalf to get answers to questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of agencies with which I can help you. However, regardless of which agency you need help navigating, you must complete a privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please download this printable version of the casework authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.
