GOP Sen. Rand Paul said Friday he was "successful" in preventing the Senate coronavirus relief bill from including a provision that would provide Paycheck Protection Program assistance to Planned Parenthoods across America, Fox News has learned.

The senator’s office on Friday said he "forced" Democrats to remove the provision that would have allowed every Planned Parenthood across America to receive funds through the PPP, which "was always intended for small businesses."

"It was a shameless attempt to fund their radical agenda on the taxpayers’ backs, and I was successful in preventing that from happening by stopping these funds from going to abortion mills."
