ACLJ Profile Completion


By Nathanael Bennett1308957954000

Efforts intensify on Capitol Hill to increase Title X funding which would likely result in more taxpayer funds going to Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider.

Our legislative affairs team in Washington is reporting that the Labor/HHS/Education Appropriations Subcommittee has approved an increase of almost $28 million for Title X funding, up from $283 million to almost $311 million.  This is an increase of about 10%.  Planned Parenthood requested this increase and will almost certainly benefit from a large number of these dollars.

Additionally, this bill still has two more stops to make in the House the full Appropriations Committee and the House floor.  If the Democrat majority continues with their current strategy, look for this increase to grow even larger.

Title X is already funded at $283 million annually and is intended to be used for family planning.  Tragically, in reality, it is used almost exclusively for abortion-related services, most often by Planned Parenthood.  This year, Congressman Joseph Crowley (D-NY) and Planned Parenthood are asking for an additional $100 million in Title X funding.  While the Hyde Amendment (if renewed) would prohibit these funds from directly funding abortions, the additional funding would certainly free up other funds to be used for abortions.

We will keep you posted on this important issue and you can learn more through the ACLJ website and through our daily radio broadcast, Jay Sekulow Live!
