I can hear the barbarian wails of displeasure emanating from the pro-abortion industry’s leadership.
Their financial coffers just got hit big time–to the tune of $60 MILLION–thanks to a strategic move by the Trump Administration.
In a major victory for life, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued its final rule revising the Title X family planning program, delivering a major blow to abortionists like Planned Parenthood.
The ruling ensures that Title X program recipients are in full compliance with the law, particularly the statutory prohibition on funding to programs where abortion services are performed or recommended as a form of family planning–like Planned Parenthood.
The rule would cut approximately $60 million of Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding. These dollars would instead be awarded to applicants that do not perform or refer for abortion as a method of family planning.
Every year under Title X (using our tax dollars as the source of its funding), the Federal Government provides grants to Planned Parenthood because they deviously claim to perform “family planning services.” However, Under the express language of Title X, “None of the funds appropriated under this title shall be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning.” Planned Parenthood has consistently used its deceptive accounting gimmicks to get around the requirement. As a result, Planned Parenthood has accounted for as much as 41% of Title X services.
Following a public comment period, HHS has issued its final rule. The new rule takes the necessary steps to stop abortionists like Planned Parenthood from continuing to siphon off taxpayer funds from a program they were never intended to be eligible for in the first place.
THIS IS A HUGE WIN FOR LIFE!
