National Right to Life Statement on the Fiscal Year 2019 Title X Grantees

Oct 1, 2019 | 2019 Press Releases, Press Releases, Press Room

WASHINGTON–Late yesterday, the Office of Population Affairs announced funding rewards of $33.6 million for fiscal year 2019 to 50 current Title X grantees to supplement their family planning services. These funds were made available when certain grantees, including Planned Parenthood, left the Title X program rather than comply with the Protect Life Rule issued earlier this year by the Department of Health and Human Services.

The regulations prohibit Title X grantees from providing or referring patients for abortion, or from co-locating abortion facilities with family planning sites.  Like all Title X providers, Planned Parenthood had the option to comply with the 2019 Title X Final Rule which faithfully implements the statutes, but chose to drop out of the program.

The funds released by the Department of Health and Human Services will go into communities to organizations that work to improve the health and well being of Americans across the U.S.

“We thank the Trump administration for enforcing the long-standing principle that federal tax dollars not be used to fund or promote the killing of unborn children through abortion,” stated Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life.
