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.

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