At a town hall meeting, Rep. Charlie Gibson (R-NY) was booed after claiming that federal Title X funds should not go to the Planned Parenthood because the reproductive health center performs abortions.

The congressman was responding to a woman who explained that without Planned Parenthood, she would have had no place to go for reproductive medical care as a young woman.
