Rep. Elijah Cummings Delivers Powerful Speech on the Importance of Planned Parenthood

During a hearing of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee about Planned Parenthood’s federal funding, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) condemns the Republican Party for attacking Planned Parenthood and the millions of people who seek medical attention and guidance from the organization. Cummings emotionally discusses his mother-in-law, who died from breast cancer, and emphasizes the importance of Planned Parenthood in communities where no other medical facility exists.
