Reminder: Comment Today In Support of the Protect Life Rule:We are trying to rally as many pro-lifers to comment in support of President Trump’s new ProtectLifeRule, which will tell the Department of Health and Human Services to direct taxpayer money to high-quality healthcare clinics that do not commit abortions and away from abortion facilities, like Planned Parenthood. Already, thousands of comments have been posted, but we know that groups like Planned Parenthood and NARAL are pushing all their supporters to comment, so pro-lifers need to make sure we comment too and make sure this rule is fully implemented!
The best part? It only takes a minute. We have a video below you can use and share, but there are only a few quick steps to comment. Remember that you must comment by July 31st, so take a minute now before you forget!
1.) Click this link: https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=HHS-OS-2018-0008-0001 and click on the “Comment Now” button in the top right-hand corner.
2.) Write out your comment in a clear, and succinct manner. Some helpful comments would be “I support President Trump’s ProtectLifeRule. Abortion vendors should not receive taxpayer dollars for family planning” or “The proposed rule ensures that women and families have access to high-quality, life-affirming family planning and that taxpayer dollars do not pay for abortions.”
3.) You can put your name and Students for Life or just put anonymous. All comments will be part of the public record, but you should be proud to put your name down!
Allowing locations that sell abortions to co-mingle their staff, costs, and purpose with programs designed to help women plan for families pollutes the purpose of Title X’s family planning mission. Abortionists should not be permitted to essentially double bill American taxpayers by setting up a storefront and charging for everything from so-called ‘education’ to any other product they can invoice. When you consider that there are more than 13,500 community health centers compared to little more than 660 Planned Parenthood clinics, it’s clear that women have many healthy choices for healthcare. It’s time to restore the family planning program to life-affirming locations designed to help women as they plan for their families.
From Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America:
We are heartbroken at the news that another mother and child have fallen victim to the horrors of legal abortion in this country. Yesterday, a 29 year-old woman, with her whole life ahead of her, walked into LeRoy Carhart’s office and never walked out. Dr. Carhart did more than just end the life of her eight month child-in-utero, he ended hers.
Carhart has a long history of abhorrent practices at his late-term abortion facilities. He should have been shut down a long time ago. If he had, this mother and child and countless others would still be alive today. He needs to be stopped immediately.
We pray for this young woman and her family and recommit ourselves to abolishing all abortion so that never again will a woman feel that killing the life within her is her only choice. So that never again will a pre-born child have his or her life snuffed out in the womb. So that never again will butchers like LeRoy Carhart be legally allowed to take the life of mother and child.
