One Major Roadblock In Biden’s Push For Taxpayer-Funded Abortion: GOP Senator Pushes Legislation To Prevent It

Senator Joni Ernst has plans to implement legislation with intentions to pull the rug out from under Planned Parenthood, according to The Western Journal.

The Protect Funding for Women’s Health Care Act would essentially stop taxpayer money from going to Planned Parenthood but would redirect that money to women’s health care providers.

“We must always fight to protect the most vulnerable of our society, the unborn,” Ernst stated.

“Sadly, President Biden is working to reverse a rule from the previous administration that prevented taxpayer money from going toward abortion providers.”

“Iowans should not be forced to fund organizations like Planned Parenthood, the nation’s single largest provider of abortions, and this legislation will help put an end to this practice and redirect those funds to eligible women’s health care providers.”

From The Western Journal:

The bill also ensures that there is no reduction in federal funding for women’s health services.

The Biden administration took steps on Wednesday to undo former President Donald Trump’s policy prohibiting Title X funds from going to organizations that perform or promote abortions.

In 2019, Trump stripped Title X funding from clinics that refer women for abortions. The policy required organizations that perform or refer women for abortions do so in separate buildings from those that receive federal funds.

Biden quickly took steps to reverse the policy.

In a Jan. 28 executive order, the new president ordered the Department of Health and Human Services to review the Title X family planning regulations.

The Biden administration’s new rule eliminates the requirement of separation between Title X programs and abortion providers.

Ernst joined a number of Republican senators in May 2020 calling on the Department of Justice to investigate reports that 37 Planned Parenthood affiliates applied for and received over $80 million in coronavirus relief funding “despite actual knowledge that they were ineligible for such loans.”

  1. I precisely wished to thank you very much yet again. I am not sure the things that I might have accomplished without the type of creative concepts discussed by you directly on such area. It seemed to be a very challenging problem for me, but coming across a specialised approach you managed that took me to weep with gladness. Now i’m happy for the information and as well , hope that you know what a great job your are doing teaching many others through the use of a site. More than likely you’ve never got to know all of us.
