VICTORY: Planned Parenthood Defunding Begins

A majority of Americans reject subsidizing the abortion industry with taxpayer money, and today the Trump Administration showed decisive leadership by enforcing longstanding law against spending Title X funds on programs where abortion is a method of family planning. CMP submitted key facts about the entanglement of Planned Parenthood abortion programs and public funding during HHS’ comment period, and we applaud the Trump Administration’s groundbreaking move to stop forcing taxpayers to prop up Planned Parenthood’s abortion empire. On the heels of this victory, HHS should continue this good work and end its unethical and illegal experimentation with aborted baby body parts, and the U.S. Department of Justice must do its job and hold Planned Parenthood and their business partners accountable to the law against selling aborted baby parts for profit.
