The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Kevin Theriot
regarding the House’s passage of the American Health Care Act, which includes a provision that would eliminate federal funding for Planned Parenthood if the bill is eventually signed into law:
“We commend the House, which by this vote has—for the third time—voted to end taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s most profitable abortionist. As ADF and our ally Charlotte Lozier Institute have thoroughly documented
, this billion-dollar abortion giant has been implicated in massive fraud, waste, and abuse of Medicaid and other federal and state programs. Congress’s well-founded concern that Planned Parenthood and its affiliates are engaged in a pattern of deceptive practices designed to maximize their bottom-line revenue should be enough reason to end the public largesse on their behalf, even apart from the fact that they destroy a third of a million human lives every year and have been involved in numerous other scandals
- Pronunciation guide: Theriot (TAIR’-ee-oh)
Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
