Description

Bill text and summary

Our Position

Support

Commentary

Every year the abortion industry receives hundreds of millions of our tax dollars, mostly via grants given by the administration through the federal Title X program, which was designed for family planning--not abortion. This bill would keep our tax dollars from propping up organizations like Planned Parenthood that make millions by ending the lives of developing babies.
