Renzi votes to deny family planning to millions

Anti-family: lame ducks W and Renzi

UPDATE, 8/23: Renzi won't run again.

FLAGSTAFF AZ -- Last month, the US House was debating a key federal spending bill, and Rep. Renzi (R-AZ) voted for a last-minute amendment that would have denied family planning services to millions of people who rely on Planned Parenthood for birth control services.

Fortunately, the unwise amendment failed.

But it's beyond ironic that Renzi claims to be so concerned about abortion rates when he voted to restrict the very funds that will help women prevent unintended pregnancy and reduce the need for abortion.

Planned Parenthood of Central and Northern Arizona is encouraging patients and supporters to tell Renzi they are outraged by his vote against Arizona's women and families.

Just one more reason of many to boot corrupt Renzi from Congress next year, if he doesn't resign first.
