HHS Proposal Would Remove Trump's "Protect Life" Title X Rule

A proposal published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on April 15 would remove pro-life Title X regulations set by the Trump administration in 2019. The proposal would restore the language set in 2000 by the Clinton administration.

Trump's "Protect Life Rule" barred organizations from receiving Title X funding if they performed abortions, co-located with organizations that performed abortions, or referred patients to organizations the perform abortions.

The new proposal "revise[s] the 2019 rules by readopting the 2000 regulations, with several modifications." While these Clinton-era rules don't directly fund abortions, they effectively subsidize abortion businesses by giving them grant funding that they can spend elsewhere.

After Trump enacted the "Protect Life Rule," Planned Parenthood voluntarily walked away from $60 million per year in taxpayer funding. With the rule gone, the abortion giant would almost certainly receive millions through the Title X program once again.
