President Trump announced another fantastic new pro-life policy two weeks ago:
No Title X family planning funds to groups that perform abortions.
But… it’s not final yet.
Like many processes in our federal bureaucracy, the implementation of such a rule requires a formal 60-day period where the public is invited to submit their comments on the proposal. As of this week, the proposed rule is now officially published in the Federal Register — and open for public comment.
As you can imagine, there are plenty of proposed rule changes for our federal government. Most of them receive very few comments.
But this proposal is different. This rule change will cost Planned Parenthood millions of dollars.
And you guessed it: the abortion lobby is now rallying their activists to register their opposition to this rule change. They are expected to deluge the Department of Health and Human Services with their opposition to the new proposal on Title X funding — and then scream about how unpopular the proposed rule is.
Can you take 3 minutes to help us show that Americans support this new pro-life policy?
Here are three highlights of the proposed rule change:
“A Title X project may not perform, promote, refer for, or support, abortion as a method of family planning, nor take any other affirmative action to assist a patient to secure such an abortion.”
Any Title X project must be organized so that it is “physically and financially separate… from activities which are prohibited…” [abortion].
All Title X projects shall “comply with all State and local laws requiring notification or reporting of child abuse, child molestation, sexual abused, rape, incest, intimate partner violence, or human trafficking.”
These would be excellent pro-life reforms.
And if implemented, they will help save many lives. What a welcome sea change from the Obama administration’s aggressive pro-abortion policies!
Quite simply: The Trump administration did its part.
Now it’s time to do ours.
