Congress: Don't Cut Funding for Title X Family Planning Programs
The U.S. House of Representatives will vote next week on a new GOP budget proposal that would eliminate all funding for Title X family planning programs in the United States — a move that would undermine low income people's access to health care and (conveniently for GOP ideologues) cripple Planned Parenthood clinics throughout the country.
With current funding for the federal government set to expire on March 4, we are fast approaching a showdown over the terms of passing a budget extension to keep the federal government from suddenly shutting down. By inserting this cut into a must-pass continuing resolution — rather than including it the regular budget process or as a stand alone bill, where it would almost certainly fail — Republicans are setting up a scenario where Congress may be forced to choose between eliminating family planning services for 5,000,000 Americans and shutting down the federal government.
