Planned Parenthood finally cashed in on its investment in political advertising to get President Joe Biden elected on Thursday, as a presidential memorandum signed by Biden ended Trump's 2018 Title X "Protect Life Rule." Biden's action restores millions of dollars in federal funding to organizations that commit abortions or refer patients to abortionists.

Trump's rule required businesses that received federal funding through Title X to separate family planning services from abortion services. Recipients were not allowed to co-locate with organizations that committed abortions or refer patients to organizations that committed abortions.

Live Action News reports that between the years 2013 and 2015, Planned Parenthood received $1.5 billion through the Title X family planning program. The Protect Life Rule caused Planned Parenthood to leave the program rather than comply with the rule.

This new funding could allow Planned Parenthood to abort children in America in higher numbers than ever before, and may even subsidize future political efforts to expand abortion nationwide.
