Are The Taxes You Pay In Your State Funding Planned Parenthood?

Are The Taxes You Pay In Your State Funding Planned Parenthood? by Micaiah Bilger for Life News

The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals plans to hear a challenge Thursday to a Biden administration rule that forces taxpayers to fund abortion groups, including the billion-dollar abortion chain Planned Parenthood.

Bloomberg Law reports the appeals court will consider a request from 12 states for a preliminary injunction to block the rule regarding Title X, a taxpayer-funded family planning program.

Title X funds are not supposed to be used for abortions. The program provides family planning services to low-income individuals, and the law states that Title X grants may not be used “where abortion is a method of family planning.”

In 2021, however, the Biden administration issued a new rule that requires Title X recipients to refer for abortions and ends the requirement that abortion facilities separate their abortion practices from their Title X services. Now, Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups are receiving tax dollars through the program again.

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost led 12 states in suing the Biden administration last year, with nine additional states supporting the lawsuit. A federal judge refused to block the rule, so the states appealed to the Sixth Circuit, according to Bloomberg.

“You can’t ‘follow the money’ when all the money is dumped into one pot and mixed together,” Yost said in a statement last year. “Federal law prohibits taxpayer funding of abortion — and that law means nothing if the federal money isn’t kept separate. That, frankly, is the real reason behind the rule.”
