House Votes to Overturn Obama Rule Forcing States to Fund Planned Parenthood

DONT counter-protest. DO call your legislators

Planned Parenthood Empire State Acts represents the state's nine Planned Parenthood affiliates, and acts as the organization's advocacy branch throughout NY.

"This resolution does not cut a dime from family planning funding available to states". "The Obama Administration's ruling defies states' right to choose Title X providers, including the ability to exclude abortion providers like Planned Parenthood".

The organizers of rallies held across the country February 11 to call for defunding Planned Parenthood said their message to Congress is to redirect taxpayer's money to facilities that "do a better job meeting the real health care needs of women and families without specializing in abortion".

Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) and Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) filed bills to overturn the rule and the House passed the measure today. House Leader Kevin McCarthy also said in a statement that the rule "forces states to administer Title X health care funding to abortion providers like Planned Parenthood". And while any judgment of these individuals' hearts or souls is left only to God, I am entrusted with the solemn duty of reminding them of the unambiguous teaching of our faith on the matter of abortion, informing them that it is inappropriate and confusing to the faithful to hold yourself out publicly as a Catholic while also promoting abortion. House Joint Resolution 43 provides for congressional disapproval on the final rule submitted by Secretary of Health and Human Services relating to compliance with Title X requirements.

According to Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood, as reported in The Washington Post, Planned Parenthood does not offer mammograms.

"Obama's legacy of forcing Americans to finance the abortion industry is being steadily dismantled by our new pro-life President and the pro-life Congress", Ms. Dannenfelser said in a statement "We look forward to swift passage of this resolution in the Senate so that it can receive President Trump's signature".

States are not cutting health grants, Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.), co-chair of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus, insisted, but are redirecting the funds "to other health clinics that provide women's health care and don't engage in abortion". However, reproductive rights advocates say that might be hard, as many clinics that provide women's and reproductive health services also perform abortions.

However, that was not the case, members maintained on Thursday.

"The defunding of Planned Parenthood is a matter of moral principle". "These five states - Tennessee, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and OH - account for almost $16 million in annual Title X funding and serve over 279,000 individuals a year". Federal money is allocated to the organization through Medicaid and public family planning services.
