Freshman Rep. Robert Dold (R-Ill.) is coming to the defense of Planned Parenthood amid his party's sustained assault on the organization.

Dold plans to introduce a bill Wednesday that would ensure Planned Parenthood's access to federal funding. House Republicans have pushed to defund Planned Parenthood, and conservative governors have picked up where the federal effort failed.

"In response to the growing number of efforts to discriminate against and exclude organizations like Planned Parenthood from participating in health care programs, Dold's legislation would protect the inclusion of any hospital or health care entity that seeks to participate in the Title X family planning program," his office said in a release.

Planned Parenthood is scheduled to join Dold at a press conference Wednesday morning.
