    Grijalva to Host Press Conference in Support of Planned Parenthood

     TUCSON – Congressman Raúl M. Grijalva (D-AZ) will be hosting a press conference to highlight how recent Affordable Care Act repeal efforts would limit patient access to Planned Parenthood and jeopardize the health of millions of women across the country. The U.S. Senate recently introduced legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act that would cut off Medicaid reimbursement to Planned Parenthood for one year, disproportionately hurting low-income women, and accounting for a loss of 75% of Planned Parenthood’s federal funding. The press conference comes one week after Congressman Grijalva sat down with Deja Foxx, a local Planned Parenthood patient who gained national attention after a viral exchange with Sen. Jeff Flake, to discuss GOP efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.
