Pro-life Americans can rally behind Friday’s executive action that should stop Title X funding going to Planned Parenthood for abortions! We received word from the White House that President Trump’s Department of Health and Human Services is filing a proposal to protect life in the Title X Family Planning Grant Program. HHS will file with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a proposal to update the regulations governing the Title X program to ensure compliance with the program’s statutory prohibition on taxpayer funding of programs where abortion is a method of family planning.
There are 266 Planned Parenthood facilities which currently provide both chemical and surgical abortions in the same place as family planning services. Similar to the Reagan-era framework, which was upheld by the Supreme Court, the new proposal would require a “bright line of physical as well as financial separation between Title X Programs and any program or facility where abortion is performed, supported, or referred for as a method of family planning.” It will prohibit counseling for abortion, but not counseling about abortion. It will better protect victims of sexual assault, incest, and rape by requiring documentation of compliance with state reporting laws regarding potential victims.
Please thank President Trump for this significant move toward defunding Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood performs 300,000 abortions a year, and is now reported to be moving into actions to “change” gender which ultimately permanently sterilize and otherwise mutilate healthy bodies. Let’s express our support to stop sending tax dollars to Planned Parenthood. For every PP “clinic” there are 20 that provide legitimate family planning services.
