HHS officially announces pro-life changes to Title X Family Planning Grant Program
Tuesday, Health and Human Services (HHS) filed a rule-making proposal with the Office of Management and Budget to restore Title X family planning regulations to prohibit grantees from co-locating with abortion clinics, or from referring clients for abortions.
In spite of pro-abortion distortions, the proposed rule does not cut one dime of funding for family planning. Rather it merely ensures that funding goes to health facilities that do not perform or promote abortion as family planning.
Last evening, longtime pro-life advocate Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), hosted a Special Order hour for Members to speak in support of the Title X rule where many members voiced their strong support for the move.
Numerous other members of Congress issued statements, including James Lankford (R-OK) who said, “Regardless of our differences of opinion on when life begins, we should all agree that no taxpayer should be forced to fund abortion providers with their hard-earned tax dollars.”
