Senate Rejects Resolution to Stop Funding Abortions

Sen Maro Rubio (R-FL)
The US Senate voted 49-49 on April 27 to reject a joint resolution to reverse Biden's 2021 Final Rule on the Title X Family Planning Program. That rule reversed Trump's "Protect Life" rule, which prevented Title X funding from going to organizations that performed abortions, promoted abortion as a method of family planning, or referred women to abortion businesses.

The Senate resolution was introduced by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) was the only Democrat to vote against Biden's rule. Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Susan Collins (R-ME) joined Democrats voting in favor of the rule.

“We praise Senator Rubio for this joint resolution and his work to prevent taxpayer funds from being used to subsidize the abortion industry that preys on women and their unborn children,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life (NRLC). “Americans don’t want their taxpayer dollars used to subsidize abortion clinics.”

“For tens of millions of Americans, supplementing the abortion industry through taxpayer funds is offensive,” Tobias continued. “The Biden administration has shown that it is willing to do everything it can to facilitate and expand abortion on demand.”
