I am very strongly opposed to H.J. Res.43. It is a tragedy that Congress has passed this legislation.

I am very strongly in favor of providing federal assistance for women's reproductive health care needs, including all methods of birth control. Women need this great country to stand behind them now more than ever.

My husband and I reported approximately $176,448 in federal income tax paid on April 18.

We would like for 100 percent of our federal income tax collected to be directed by our representatives in Congress to federal funding for Planned Parenthood Association of Utah.

On multiple occasions as a young woman, I relied on the Planned Parenthood Federation of America for comprehensive high quality women's reproductive care. I would be remiss if I did not use my current status as a successful tax-paying physician and mom to advocate for a high quality health care organization and my fellow young citizens.
