Pro-life lawmakers issued statements supporting a government decision to investigate the federal funding of Planned Parenthood and other organizations that perform abortions.
"The federal government providing funding to abortion providers is a serious problem in our nation," said Rep. Diane Black (R- Tenn.) in an August 5 statement.
She said that she is pleased with the Government Accountability Office's decision to investigate the use of taxpayer funds by abortion groups.
The independent study of how much and for what purpose these dollars are allocated to all abortion providers is necessary for Congress to ensure accountability and oversight, she stressed.
