Daines Blasts Biden’s Taxpayer-Funded Giveaway to the Abortion Industry

U.S. SENATE —U.S. Senator Steve Daines today released the following statement in response to the Biden administration’s rule that dismantles the Trump-era Title X Protect Life Rule, which enforced a wall of separation between taxpayer-funded family planning programs and abortion. “Since Day One, President Biden has been working to send taxpayer dollars to the abortion industry. Today’s rule change defies the law, and is yet another example of this Administration’s complete disregard for human life and the consciences of healthcare providers and American taxpayers. Abortion is not family planning, it is family destruction,” Daines said. The Biden administration’s rule: Allows taxpayer-funded Title X programs to support and promote abortion Provides tens

Daines Demands Investigation Into University of Pittsburgh’s Inhumane Fetal Tissue Research and Abortion Procedures

U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra and NIH Director Francis Collins asking for a thorough investigation into the University of Pittsburgh’s inhumane abortion procedures and research. “Exploiting the body parts of aborted children for research purposes is repulsive and should stop, regardless of the outcome hoped for by researchers. Research using abortive fetal tissue is unethical, wrong, and has also been proven ineffective. Despite being used in clinical research since the 1920s, fetal tissue has not produced a single clinical treatment,” the letter states.   Read the letter HERE. Recent reports from the

Daines, Colleagues Demand Google Stop Silencing Pro-Life Views, Reverse Unjust Censorship

U.S. SENATE — U.S. Senator Steve Daines, founder and chair of the Senate Pro-Life Caucus, today led a group of 10 senators to demand answers from the CEO of Google, Mr. Sundar Pichai, on Google’s double standard in censoring pro-life Abortion Pill Reversal (APR) advertisements while continuing to allow advertisements for deadly abortion pills. “While banning pro-life APR ads, Google continues to allow ads for purveyors of the deadly abortion pill mifepristone by mail, despite the fact this drug has resulted in at least 24 mothers’ tragic deaths and at least 1,042 mothers being sent to the hospital. Google’s double standard on abortion is disingenuous and an egregious abuse

It is despicable that Planned Parenthood is seeking to undo the Montana legislature’s life-saving laws that prevent barbaric late-term abortions on babies who can feel pain, taxpayer funding for abortion, and reckless do-it-yourself abortions by mail. This is yet another example of how the abortion industry puts profits over patients, ignores science, and weaponizes the Courts to thwart

This not only ends the life of an unborn child, it endangers the mother’s life as

Daines: We Must Stand for Life, Prevent Taxpayer Dollars from Funding Abortion

U.S. SENATE —U.S. Senator Steve Daines today fought to prevent taxpayer dollars from funding abortions. Senate Democrats blocked this prohibition from being added to the $1.9 trillion spending package disguised as COVID-19 relief. “Senate Democrats voted to allow billions of taxpayer dollars to be used to fund abortions and voted against applying a 44-year-old prohibition called the Hyde Amendment. We have had five bipartisan COVID relief packages and not one of them included any provisions that would undermine pro-life protections,” Daines said. “Preventing taxpayer dollars from funding abortions is something a majority of Americans agree with. I’m very disappointed to see
