Students for Life of America says Greed of Abortion Lobby on Display in Lawsuits Filed today Regarding Title X Monies
WASHINGTON D.C. (05-02-18) –Following news of lawsuits filed today by Planned Parenthood along with the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association and American Civil Liberties Union to prevent the Trump Administration from directing the family planning funds in Title X away from abortion vendors, Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins made the following statement:
“Planned Parenthood and abortion vendors seem terrified that people will discover just how easy it will be to live a healthy life without them. People make many medical choices that don’t include Planned Parenthood, and the Trump Administration is to be commended for attempting to redirect Title X dollars away from abortion vendors. Consider that there are more than 13,500 community health centers compared to little more than 660 Planned Parenthood clinics, and that people may go to private physicians or other organizations for family planning. Nobody goes to Planned Parenthood for a flu shot, and nobody has to go to Planned Parenthood for any kind of healthcare. The greed of the abortion lobby is on display as once again they go to court to force taxpayers to fund their enterprise.”
