Trump Administration Poised to Be Most Prolife

Colorado Springs—The Trump Administration is set to file a new prolife proposal that maintains all funding for family planning services through the Title X program, while disentangling taxpayers from the abortion industry.

“Americans have been begging their elected leaders to get them out of the abortion business for years. Now, one thing is clear—President Trump and his Administration are keeping their promises to the majority of prolife Americans who elected him, setting up his Administration to be the most prolife of any president. Planned Parenthood profits from the deaths of over 300,000 preborn children each year, and Title X funds remain their second largest funding stream,” said Autumn Leva, Vice President of Strategy for Family Policy Alliance.

President Trump’s leadership on the prolife issue and announcement today are a huge win for prolifers. Nearly 8000 letters were sent to President Trump and his Administration by pro-family, prolife Americans through Family Policy Alliance’s Action Center, asking the President to disentangle abortion centers from the Title X network. Family Policy Alliance and our network of over 40 state-based family policy council allies joined a total of 85 national and state prolife groups in a letter asking President Trump and HHS Secretary Azar to issue new Title X regulations earlier in May.

“If Planned Parenthood insists on abortions being a necessary part of their business model, then they certainly don’t need a taxpayer-funded gravy train through family planning grants. Those funds are much better spent on community healthcare centers that better serve both women and their children in far more locations than Planned Parenthood,” Leva added.
