The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services [HHS] announced that $33.6 million, previously allocated to the multinational abortion company Planned Parenhood, will be allocated to other eligible health care companies.
The funds are being transferred to clinics that provide reproductive health services not including abortion. If they also perform abortions, they will have to do so in a separate building from all other services, according to Fox News on Oct. 2.
Planned Parenthood refused to comply with this provision and chose not to continue providing state-funded reproductive health services and prioritize the practice of abortion.
“Some grantees are now blaming the government for their own actions … they are abandoning their obligations to serve their patients under the program,” said Mia Palmieri Heck, spokeswoman for the HHS office that administers the allocation of state funds, quoted by the Wall Street Journal.
Now HHS will prioritize “underserved jurisdictions and low-income people,” and through qualified organizations that comply with the law, she added, according to Fox News.
“Those supplemental grants allow them to expand family-planning services and increase protections for women and children at risk of (or victims of) child abuse, child molestation, sexual abuse, rape, incest, intimate-partner violence, and sex trafficking,” Mia Heck said, according to Fox News.
In addition, Heck said they will seek to prevent any impact among patients who used to go to clinics that now refuse to comply with the law, such as Planned Parenthood and its associates.
“HHS will continue to seek qualified entities to minimize any interruption of Title X services caused by the grantees that chose not to serve their patients as promised when they accepted Title X funds,” Heck concluded, according to Fox News.
Thus states such as Alabama, Arizona, Mississippi, and Delaware were among those who received the money reallocated by the Department of Health.
Simultaneously, the new provisions allow pro-life pregnancy centers to compete with the abortion giant for federal funds, providing family control services for low-income people, without involving abortions.
The “Protect Life Rule” law added new requirements to elect Title X beneficiaries in late February 2019, at the behest of the Trump administration, interested in protecting babies’ lives.
Planned Parenthood has performed controversially in the face of millions of abortions in many countries around the world.
According to a Live Action report, in the United States, this multinational abortion company was complicit in the cover-up of human trafficking for sexual purposes and the cover-up of child sexual abuse.
Planned Parenthood employees were filmed in multiple locations helping traffickers and instigating child sex, in addition to being accused of selling parts of babies’ bodies obtained through abortions.
