North Country Rep. Stefanik votes for fifth time to defund Planned Parenthood

North Country Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-Willsboro, the youngest woman ever elected to the House of Representatives, has voted for a fifth time for a bill that would defund Planned Parenthood in the North Country and nationwide.

The bill, taken up by the House on Wednesday, cuts millions in funding from Planned Parenthood, a women’s health organization and family planning provider that has been under fire from Republicans in the House for its support of abortion.
