The Title X program is a voluntary grant program that was created to educate and provide family planning services. Even though the law says that abortion is not family planning, abortion giants like Planned Parenthood have used this grant program as their own personal slush fund. But now we have the chance to stop it!
As with any federal regulation, there is an open comment period where the public has the opportunity to express their views. After the 60-day comment period is up, HHS will review the comments and issue a final rule based on the public’s feedback.

Dear Secretary Azar,
I am writing in strong support of the proposed rule governing Title X funds. I, along with other supporters and activists of Concerned Women for America, stand with you and believe that abortion is not family planning. Thank you for drawing a bright line between abortion and family planning.
I also stand with over 60% of Americans who want OUT of the abortion business. Taxpayer dollars should be invested in comprehensive health care and not used as a slush fund propping up the abortion industry.
This rule will provide necessary transparency for Title X funds and would assure that none of these funds are used for abortion or abortion-related business costs. Thank you for repealing the Clinton Administration’s requirement for abortion counseling. This essentially prohibited many qualified providers from participating in the Title X program and was a clear violation of federal laws that provide conscience protections for health care providers.
Taxpayers and patients deserve access to better care than they receive at abortion mills. I urge you to uphold this proposed rule in its entirety.
