Daines Slams Biden’s Move to Direct Taxpayer Dollars to Abortion Industry

U.S. SENATE —U.S. Senator Steve Daines today released the below statement in response to the Biden Administration’s efforts to direct taxpayer dollars to the abortion industry.

“Abortion is not family planning, it is family destruction. President Biden’s actions today are an attempt to provide a taxpayer funded giveaway to Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry. This defies the law and tramples over the consciences of health care providers and the American taxpayers,” Daines said.

The Biden Administration’s proposed rule would:

  • Allow taxpayer-funded Title X programs to support and promote abortion
  • Provide tens of millions of dollars in funding to Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry each year
  • Force providers, including faith-based providers, to refer for abortion in a blatant violation of the Weldon Amendment

Background:

Senator Daines slammed President Biden’s Executive Order that led to today’s proposed rule dismantling the Title X Protect Life Rule.

Senator Daines recently called out the Biden Administration for its budget request that would provide millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood through the Title X program.

In January, Daines introduced the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act to bar Title X family planning funding for abortion providers like Planned Parenthood.
