Biden Administration Forces Taxpayers to Fund Abortion Businesses

New rule authorizes taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood and Abortion Referrals

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO—Family Policy Alliance responded to a new posted rule from the Biden-Harris Department of Health and Human Services will authorize abortion groups to receive Title X Family Planning funds. The new rule also mandates that grant recipients refer for abortions.

Under the Trump Administration, Title X grant funding was prohibited from being used for abortion referrals, protecting taxpayers from funding the abortion industry. Today’s actions completely overturn these taxpayer protections.

Nicole Hudgens, Government Affairs for Family Policy Alliance, stated:

“The Biden Administration is now forcing Americans to fund the brutal and barbaric killing of innocent children. And let’s be honest, this rule is really about the Administration ensuring their friends at Planned Parenthood get paid–with taxpayers footing the bill.

And after tens of thousands of Americans raised major concerns that abortion referrals violate conscience rights and the law, it’s clear the Biden Administration is only committed to serving the interests of Planned Parenthood – not the American people or the rule of law. This Administration is determined to enable and facilitate the abortion agenda, and now they are forcing everyone else’s support as well.

The Biden-Harris Administration continues to forsake life, women, and freedom of conscience.”

The new Biden-Harris rule will return the Title X Program to one of renewed entanglement with abortion, which Congress expressly prohibits.

Family Policy Alliance, along with thousands of Americans, raised concerns that the rule will violate conscience rights. The Biden-Harris rule, while acknowledging federal law in response, refuses to protect the rights of conscience explicitly and affirmatively for providers. This raises major concerns about their willingness to defend Americans’ conscience freedoms.

Even worse, the Biden-Harris Administration is focused on filling the coffers of Planned Parenthood, as the organization is discussed numerous times throughout the rule.
