ADF commends HHS for life-affirming health funding reforms

Tuesday, July 31, 2018

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Denise Burke regarding official comments ADF submitted to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in support of the Protect Life Rule and its reforms of the Title X funding program:

“Americans’ tax dollars should never be used to fund abortion, shield child abusers, or force medical professionals to violate their convictions by referring for or participating in the end of human life. The Trump administration’s commonsense reforms shouldn’t be contentious even among those who disagree on the ethics of abortion. The Protect Life Rule simply ensures greater compliance with current federal and state laws, safeguards vulnerable and abused women and children, and helps protect freedom of conscience for health care workers. Unfortunately, the nation’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood, has covered up the sexual abuse of young girls and has been investigated for waste, abuse, and potential fraud. Because of these failures, Planned Parenthood doesn’t deserve taxpayer dollars. These vital reforms are welcome steps towards greater government program integrity and the protection of every human life, no matter how vulnerable.”
