Dear HHS Secretary Alex Azar,
Since Congress has failed to defund Planned Parenthood, we are looking to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to take action.
Planned Parenthood receives a major source of its funding from Title X.
We are calling on HHS to restrict any organization that refers for or performs abortions from receiving Title X’s government funding. Additionally, Title X organizations should be physically and financially separated from facilities that provide abortions.
In 2016, the last year data is available, Planned Parenthood committed 321,384 abortions and received over half a billion dollars in government funds. Furthermore, Planned Parenthood is currently under investigation by the Department of Justice for the trafficking of fetal tissue.
Ending taxpayer funding of abortion is not only the right thing to do, it’s also supported by a large majority of Americans.
