Biden’s “Unity” Administration Again Props Up Abortion Industry

Washington D.C. – The Biden Administration has overturned regulations for the Title X family planning program finalized in 2019 that realigned the program with a prohibition in law against abortion as a method of family planning.  When the rule took effect, Planned Parenthood chose to pull out of the program rather than comply with the requirement that abortion services be physically and financially separate.  Under the Biden rule, the abortion industry will no longer be prohibited from comingling its funds and promoting abortion as a Title X grantee.

Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee had this to say:

“Pro-life women are disgusted by the rabid abortion agenda promoted by the Biden Administration.  From Day One, President Biden has prioritized aborting the unborn over protecting birthmothers and their babies.  Repealing the pro-life protections that were built into Title X by law is another tragic action that has one goal, putting the abortion industry back in business.  Biden’s new rule earmarks the abortion industry for federal funding that the vast majority of Americans oppose.  Women are being deceived about the real harm of abortion and the eugenic history of Planned Parenthood.  It’s time to unmask the truth about abortion.”

Your Help is Needed: Conscience Care Rule — Action Center

By | Blog, LAC Hot Topics/Alerts, News and Events, Religious Liberty, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

Earlier this week, we had a huge victory surrounding the Title X program and a finalized rule we asked for your help generating comments on last summer. Yet again, we have the opportunity to back up the good work that President Trump is doing through the official rulemaking process.

Last month, the Department of Health and Human Services issued a proposed rule surrounding section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This rule rolls back previous action taken by President Obama that wrongfully interpreted the word “sex” to include “gender identity” and “termination of pregnancy” and prohibited so-called discrimination against these classes. This means that doctors who do not want to perform gender transition treatments would be forced to and doctors who don’t want to participate in abortions would be forced to participate, even if they have objections on moral or religious grounds.

This new rule clarifies that Section 1557 of the ACA cannot force a recipient of federal funding to provide or pay for an abortion. It will also be consistent with the First Amendment, the intent and language of civil rights laws, and consistent with pro-life provisions, conscience provisions, and religious liberty protections in current law. This rule is a timely clarification that the federal definition of sex discrimination in the ACA does not include abortion or gender transition treatments and thus aligns with existing civil rights laws. For many healthcare providers, performing abortions or gender transition treatments is a violation of conscience and sound medical practice.

We need your help commenting on this proposed rule so that it will move forward. You may remember that these proposed rules go through a public comment period, and then the issuing agency has to take public comments into account crafting a final rule. President Trump needs you to submit a comment praising this rule. Although these Obama-era rules never went into effect, HHS needs to uphold the biological definition of sex in civil rights laws. This proposed rule is now open for a public comment period that will close on August 13, 2019. After the comment period closes, HHS must then review each comment and issue a final ruling based on feedback. Therefore, our voice on this matter is crucial.
