As part of the coalition working to defund Planned Parenthood, Family Policy Alliance got great news late yesterday. Today, the Trump Administration will be announcing changes to the Title X program that will likely result in a reduction of about $60 million in taxpayer funding to abortion giant Planned Parenthood.
This victory is the result of lots of hard work by many, as well as thousands of pro-life Americans making their voice heard. In fact, Family Policy Alliance team members like you sent nearly 8,000 emails through our Action Center to President Trump and Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, asking for this action to be taken. Thank you!
The Administration will soon issue new regulations that closely align with President Reagan’s regulations – prohibiting family planning funding from going to entities that engage in abortion-related activities. It will require clear physical and financial separation “between Title X programs and any program (or facility) where abortion is performed, supported, or referred for as a method of family planning.”
Currently 266 Planned Parenthood abortion centers are also federal Title X locations. Planned Parenthood would have to substantially revise how it operates to avoid cuts – something that most experts see as unlikely. Assuming they do not make necessary changes, funding would be diverted to other entities that are not engaged in abortion.
Committing more than 300,000 abortions each year is Planned Parenthood’s main claim to infamy. But Family Policy Alliance recently exposed another reason that Planned Parenthood shouldn’t receive a dime of taxpayers’ money – their work to push kids to change gender, permanently sterilizing and disfiguring otherwise healthy young bodies.
Please take a moment to thank President Trump and Secretary Azar for this bold and common-sense action. You can send your note in just seconds at our Action Center.
Thank you for your action that is saving lives!
