National Right to Life Praises Trump Administration and Health and Human Services for Immediate Action on Title X

Jul 16, 2019 | 2019 Press Releases, Abortion, Press Releases

The following statement can be attributed to Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee, in response to immediate enforcement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) of the Title X rule reinstated by the Trump Administration. The rule states that funds administered under Title X shall not “be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning.”

“We praise the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for their immediate enforcement of this reasonable policy. This rule makes it very clear that abortion is not a method of family planning. We are very grateful for President Trump and his commitment to protecting innocent unborn babies and preventing taxpayer monies from subsidizing abortion clinics through Title X.”

Founded in 1968, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of 50 state right-to-life affiliates and more than 3,000 local chapters, is the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement, NRLC works through legislation and education to protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia.
