Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released the following statement on Senate Majority Leader Schumer filing cloture on the motion to proceed to the Women’s Health Protection Act:

“The question before the U.S. Senate on this vote is whether the Senate will proceed to debate the Women’s Health Protection Act. Given the recent Supreme Court rulings, potential rulings this year, and the Republican Party’s clear and unrelenting use of this issue as a political weapon, I will vote ‘yes’ to allow debate on this bill. I have long worked to reduce the number of unintended pregnancies and abortions, and I hope that as part of this debate we will also focus on new and substantial funding for pregnant women, infants, and children.”
