Contact the Trump Administration Now to Support New Regulations Defunding Planned Parenthood!

June 7, 2018

Dear Friends,

We have until July 31 to tell the Trump Administration to go ahead with its newly proposed regulations that will deny Title X federal family planning to Planned Parenthood and other abortionists. This current public comment period is our only chance to voice support for the President’s latest pro-life initiative.

The abortion industry and its backers are sending in negative comments against the new rules.  We must overwhelm them with messages of support for the President’s proposal.

For decades, Planned Parenthood and other abortionists have been able to use Title X family planning money to subsidize their abortion businesses. They use the funds to partially pay for abortionists’ salaries, abortion clinic overhead, and other abortion-related expenses. As long as abortion clinics and Title X programs are located under the same roof, they can do this under current rules.

The new Trump rules, however, change all that. Modeled after measures initiated by the Reagan Administration and upheld by the Supreme Court in 1991, today’s proposed regulations would require Title X family planning programs to be financially and physically separate from businesses that perform or refer for abortions.

Since Planned Parenthood refuses to separate its family planning and abortion “services,” they would no longer receive the $60 million in Title X money that they are now given. No wonder Planned Parenthood is howling!

Our time to act is now!

You can support the Trump Administration’s new initiative by sending a brief message of support to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Your message doesn’t have to be long, just to the point.

Let HHS know that you are strongly in favor of keeping family planning fund separate from abortion – that you are tired of your tax dollars being used to subsidize abortion through the Title X program.

As I mentioned at the beginning of this Alert, the deadline for submitting your comment is July 31. We must get as many pro-life comments sent in as early as possible!

President Trump has been a faithful leader in fulfilling his promises to the pro-life movement. Now, we must show him that we appreciate his efforts and let him know that we stand behind him 100%. We can end $60 million of Planned Parenthood’s annual funding now. On behalf of the babies and their mothers, let’s do it!

Please click here for instructions on how to submit your comment.

And please forward this alert to your family, friends, co-workers and those in your churches and ask them to comment as well.

Sincerely,

Fr. Frank Pavone
