Statement on Planned Parenthood lawsuit

Aimee Edwards, spokeswoman for Gov. Gary R. Herbert, issued the following statement:

“Gov. Herbert stands by his actions to cease acting as a pass-through for federal funds to Planned Parenthood. He was offended by the actions of Planned Parenthood and the callousness with which they discussed human life. The health of Utahns, especially women, remains a priority for the governor. He will continue working with the state health department, local health departments, community health centers, non-profit clinics and others to provide these important services.”
