Minnesota's Democratic Senator Al Franken has been a proactive advocate for women's health care since being elected to office.
He pushed to have military contractors defunded for punishing rape victims attacked on the job.
He sought to end the practice of making rape victims pay for the processing on their own rape kits.
Now he is standing up for Planned Parenthood and its importance as a
primary health care provider for many women as the GOP-controlled House of Representatives tries to cut funding for these vital programs across the nation.
