“For too long, Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry have infiltrated the Title X program, siphoning off family planning resources to fatten their bottom lines and to market abortion vendors’ deadly product,” said SFLA’s Kristan Hawkins. “But abortion is not contraception or healthcare.”
Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins announced this week that the nationwide network of more than 1,200 college and university chapters in all 50 states would be rallying pro-life Millennials and Generation Z to express their support for the Trump Administration changes to the Title X family planning program. Through July 31, people are being asked to comment about the changes proposed by the Trump Administration. Comments can be made by following this link at the Federal Register.

People expressing their views at the website should note that all comments will be made public, which means that if you do not want personally identifiable information (such as name, address, or other contact information) or confidential business information made public, don’t include it. Comments may be submitted anonymously and should be labeled “Family Planning.”
Hawkins said that SFLA supporters were encouraged to support the vital changes that would redirect scarce taxpayer resources away from locations selling abortions, would require that abortions not referred for or sold as part of the program, and would demand that crimes against the women who come for appointments be reported (such as sexual abuse or sex trafficking.)
Hawkins observed, “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.”
