    FARR asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. FARR. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to talk about violence. Republicans may try, but you cannot separate our debate today on women's health clinic violence from our country's gun violence problem.

    Since 1993, 11 individuals have lost their lives while seeking or providing health care at women's health care facilities, and 10 of the 11 were victims of gun violence. Since January of this year, the House has voted 10 times to restrict women's health services. That is one vote for every person who died from gun violence at a women's health care clinic; yet there have been zero votes on gun control.

    Stop this war on women's health and reproductive care, and start a sane regulatory process on guns.
