Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act


January 3, 2017


Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act "prohibit[s] family planning grants from being awarded to any entity that performs abortions...."

Our Position



Rep. Diane Black: "As a nurse for over 40 years, I have spent my career protecting life. As a member of Congress, I continue this critical fight for life. With the start of the new Congress, I re-introduced former Congressman Mike Pence’s (IN) legislation, the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act (H.R. 217), which would stop Title X federal grants from going to abortion providers. Planned Parenthood is both the largest abortion provider in America and the largest recipient of Title X dollars. While Title X grants are intended to fund critical women’s health services for low income Americans, Planned Parenthood misuses taxpayer dollars to supplant its abortion services. I will not rest until we put a stop to Planned Parenthood’s blatant abuse of taxpayer dollars to subsidize its big abortion business."
