The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of state right-to-life organizations, urges you to support the House-passed H. J. Res. 43. This resolution employs the Congressional Review Act to nullify an Obama Administration rule designed to prevent states from redirecting Title X funds away from unsuitable organizations.
NRLC intends to include the roll call on final passage of H. J. Res. 43 in our scorecard of key right-to-life votes of the 115th Congress.
In recent years, several states receiving Title X family planning grants have opted to direct those funds to county health departments, community health centers, or other types of providers, in preference to organizations engaged in objectionable activities, such as Planned Parenthood, a mega-marketer of abortion that has also been involved in fetal organ trafficking.
Over one-third of all abortions in the U.S. are performed at PPFA-affiliated facilities. Longstanding objections to the massive governmental funding of PPFA have been reinforced by widely publicized undercover videos, which illuminate the callous brutality that occurs daily in these abortion mills. For additional up-to-date information on the extent of Planned Parenthood’s involvement in abortion, see: www.nrlc.org/communications/ppfamediabackground/
Thank you for your consideration of the position of National Right to Life on this matter of great importance to our organization.
