Action Alert! Tell Your Senators That States Need the Option to Defund Planned Parenthood
   Wednesday, March 8, 2017   at   9:53 AM

By its own admission, Planned Parenthood affiliates across the nation performed more than 323,000 abortions in the time period covered in its 2014–2015 annual report. During that time, the organization also received more than half a billion dollars in federal tax money.

Even though the funds Planned Parenthood receives, in theory, don’t directly pay for taking the lives of unborn babies, they help to keep in business an organization that won’t exist when abortion in America no longer occurs.

Planned Parenthood, no matter its claims, is not a legitimate health–care organization. They exist primarily to end human life, not to improve it. The federal funds in question would be much better distributed to city and county health departments and other legitimate entities. Under legislation now before the U.S. Senate, states would have the right to make that choice — a right the states should have.

H.J. Res. 43 passed the U.S. House of Representatives Feb. 16 by a vote of 230–188. It awaits consideration in the U.S. Senate. The resolution, if approved by the Senate and signed into law by President Trump, would reverse an earlier Department of Health and Human Services rule which regulated the granting of federal Title X (women’s health) funds. Planned Parenthood has been funded lavishly through this provision, even though its services are only available in large cities.

Putting the distribution of these funds completely under control of individual states would give the states the option of more appropriately targeting the funds, while still respecting the sanctity of human life.

Planned Parenthood may or may not be able to survive as a true not–for–profit organization, but we believe it’s time to find out if it’s viable without our tax dollars. Or, as an alternative, it could receive the federal funds by ending its abortion practice. Either way works with us.

States deserve the option of how to best serve their residents, and H.J. Res. 43 would give them that flexibility. Click here to ask your U.S. Senators to support House Joint Resolution 43.
