For more than four decades, Title X grants have provided low-income and uninsured Americans with access to family planning and preventative health care services.
On Monday, all recipients of Title X dollars were required to submit a written statement to the Department of Health and Human Services confirming that they do not perform abortions and they will comply with the Protect Life Rule. Instead of doing so, Planned Parenthood announced it will withdraw from Title X.
What does this tell us about Planned Parenthood? Well, perhaps nothing new — we were already keenly aware of their unwavering support for abortion on demand. But this move does signal a new level of boldness by the nation’s largest abortion provider. It’s hard to hide behind a mantra of “our mission is to provide comprehensive health care” while thumbing your nose at funding to provide comprehensive family planning and other health care services!
