Title X Funding and Pro-Life Action
Are you fed-up with your hard-earned tax dollars being used to subsidize abortion providers, like Planned Parenthood?
We are too, and we were incredibly disappointed that Congress failed to defund Planned Parenthood in its Omnibus Spending bill last month. (You can still send a message of disappointment to your lawmakers HERE.)
But that doesn’t mean we’re giving up our efforts to end taxpayer funding of abortion.
Title X is a major source of federal funding for Planned Parenthood, and we are joining with pro-life Members of Congress who are urging the Department of Health and Human Services to ban organizations that refer for abortion from Title X funding.
This move by HHS could block a major source of government dollars to Planned Parenthood.
Take action today and urge HHS Secretary Alex Azar to restrict Title X funding from organizations that refer for abortions, like Planned Parenthood.
If you need any additional background on Planned Parenthood:
- Planned Parenthood is currently under investigation by the Department of Justice for the trafficking of fetal tissue.
- In 2016, the last year data is available, Planned Parenthood committed 321,384 abortions and received over half a billion dollars in government funds.
- Since 2006, under the helm of Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood has received over 5.3 billion dollars in federal money and committed 3,547,123 abortions.
p.s. You can read more about Planned Parenthood’s radical abortion advocacy in Jeanne Mancini’s latest op-eds HERE.
Ending taxpayer funding of abortion is not only the right thing to do, it’s also supported by a large majority of Americans.
