According to Black,
H.R. 217 will clarify the original intent and spirit of the law, so that Title X federally funded grants will no longer be awarded to Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the United States, or any other organization that abuses their privileges as health care providers and fails to protect life by providing abortions. It is long past time for Congress to respect the will of the American people and stop taxpayer funded abortions – a heinous abuse of the law and destruction of innocent life.
The Congresswoman is correct—Planned Parenthood is not furthering women’s health; it’s using American tax dollars to war against it—and it’s time we put a stop to it.
