Biden Admin Reverses "Protect Life Rule," Sending Millions in Tax Dollars to Planned Parenthood

This Monday, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that it would finally undo former President Donald Trump's "Protect Life Rule" that excluded abortion businesses from receiving Title X family planning funds.

The "Protect Life Rule" required “clear financial and physical separation between Title X-funded projects and programs or facilities where abortion is a method of family planning,” and banned “referral for abortion as a method of family planning.” Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses refused to adhere to the rule. As a result, Planned Parenthood received $60 million less in taxpayer funding annually.

President Joe Biden made it a priority to direct the HHS to "consider" ending the pro-life rule. The HHS formally (but unsurprisingly) announced this Monday that it will undo the rule.

HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra said, “Our nation’s family planning clinics play a critical role in delivering health care, and today more than ever, we are making clear that access to quality family planning care includes accurate information and referrals — based on a patient’s needs and direction.”

Planned Parenthood Federation of America CEO Alexis McGill Johnson was quick to thank the Biden administration for returning the flow of federal taxpayer dollars to the abortion corporation. “We thank the Biden-Harris administration for swiftly ending the harmful policy and prioritizing access to sexual and reproductive health care,” Johnson said.

New regulations which remove the "Protect Life Rule" are set to go into effect on November 8, 2021.
