We are trying to rally as many pro-lifers to comment in support of President Trump’s new Protect Life Rule, 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 Protect Life Rule. 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.
