    By Ami Bera

    Special to the Bee

    As one of the few practicing doctors serving in Congress, I understand the real consequences ending federal funding to Planned Parenthood would have for patients.

    That’s why I stand with Planned Parenthood and will not vote to defund it. We need to keep politicians out of the exam room and instead work together to make sure women have access to preventive health care.

    Recent attacks against Planned Parenthood are about nothing other than politicizing and restricting access to health care.

The other, while overseeing India’s public health program and the recent eradication of polio there, has seen how vaccines protect against some of the world’s deadliest diseases.
