News Release

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Steven H. Aden regarding the issuance Wednesday of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ final rule on expanded access to elective abortion under the Obama administration’s interpretation of Title X of the Public Health Service Act:

“Planned Parenthood isn’t superior to true, publicly-funded health care centers—which are far more numerous—simply because it claims to focus on dispensing birth control, despite being America’s largest abortion business. The Obama administration, even in its waning hours, has chosen to put Planned Parenthood’s Big Abortion agenda ahead of women’s health and the right of states to decide how best to prioritize public health funding so that patients and the most comprehensive health providers come first. Donald Trump should restore the focus on women’s health and the ability of states to best serve them by rescinding this Title X order immediately after taking office as president.”

In October, Alliance Defending Freedom, Susan B. Anthony List, and Lozier Institute submitted comments to HHS opposing the regulation.

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
