President Trump’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is trying to defend life! HHS issued a proposed change to the existing regulations governing the Title X family planning program. Right now programs can receive Title X money even if they perform or refer for abortions in the same location as their Title X activities. This means Planned Parenthood clinics, many of which perform abortions, are being subsidized by taxpayer dollars! This proposed rule will make sure that taxpayer dollars stay out of the abortion industry and will protect the Title X program from subsidizing abortion.
The proposed rule would also require Title X clinics to abide by state reporting laws for rape and abuse in order to put a stop to the exploiting of young women and girls, many of whom are brought to Title X clinics for contraception and abortion by their abusers. The proposed rule would ensure that these girls will be protected and their abusers brought to justice.
We need your help! To ensure that this proposed rule receives public support, please submit this comment to thank HHS for their efforts and encourage them to continue their defense of the inalienable right to life.
