Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (CO-03) introduced the Defund Planned Parenthood Act, legislation that prohibits federal tax dollars from going to Planned Parenthood and that redirects those resources to community health centers.

Congresswoman Boebert stated, “The nation’s largest abortion provider has no business receiving taxpayer dollars. Planned Parenthood claims these funds go to healthcare for women, but last year, Planned Parenthood performed a record number of abortions while also reducing the number of well-woman exams and breast cancer screenings it performed. Instead of funding Planned Parenthood, my bill will redirect this funding to community health centers that actually meet the health needs of women across the country.”

Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America said, “There’s no single entity that stands to make a profit off the violence of abortion more than Planned Parenthood. Deceitfully, Planned Parenthood guises their business model as one that helps women while their latest annual report shows they made $633 MILLION from taxpayers while ending 383,460 little lives in that same time frame. Screening services to help women were all down by double digit percentages proving they’re in the business of abortion. Students for Life Action applauds Rep. Boebert and her colleagues for cutting funds from this abortion giant while lifting up the local pregnancy centers that stand to gain nothing from helping women facing crisis pregnancy.”

Students for Life of America, the National Right to Life Committee, Heritage Action, and Concerned Women for America support Congresswoman Boebert’s Defund Planned Parenthood Act.

  1. Don’t see Zach Nunn’s name on the list. He’s too busy going along with promoting the futile war in Ukraine that could get us into WWIII. Maybe the defense industry has already offered some of the ill-gotten gains they have been doling out to politicians to keep killing Ukrainians and provoking Russia and China. War is good for business.
