UPDATE 2-22-2019 GREAT NEWS!
The Trump administration has finalized the Protect Life Rule, which would redirect $60 million taxpayer dollars AWAY from abortion giant Planned Parenthood to non-abortion clinics. This is a crucial step in the right direction!
The Trump Administration’s Department of Health and Human Services released its final rule change on Title X, the federal family planning program. The new rule requires a “clear financial and physical separation between Title X funded projects and programs or facilities where abortion is a method of family planning.”
This would mean that in order for Planned Parenthood to receive its usual $60 million annually in Title X funding, it would need to separate its abortion business from its other services, financially and physically (120 days to comply financially, and one year to comply physically). Planned Parenthood’s facilities are all housed under the same roof, so to speak, which means that any funds going toward Planned Parenthood for birth control services are also serving to keep its abortion business functioning ,due to fungibility.

The second rule finalizes changes to the HHS Contraceptives Mandate, making it essentially optional. Both Hobby Lobby and the Little Sisters of the Poor won their cases at the U.S. Supreme Court, and the Trump Administration followed through on promises to protect their conscience rights. Read More
