220px-Marsha_Blackburn_OfficialWASHINGTON –  Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) has introduced the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act (H.R. 61) which would stop the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) from providing federal family planning assistance under Title X to abortion businesses until they certify they won’t provide and refer for abortions. The reintroduction of this legislation in the 113th Congress is similar to legislation former Congressman Mike Pence introduced in the 112th Congress (H.R. 217).

“Congressman Pence has been a champion in the fight to protect innocent human life and I hope to continue his leadership in the House,” Congresswoman Blackburn said. “As a woman, I believe America deserves better than abortion. America shouldn’t celebrate abortion and our taxpayers shouldn’t subsidize abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood, who profit from the destruction of human life with taxpayer money. It’s fiscally irresponsible and morally indefensible.”

Congressman Marsha Blackburn is Vice Chair of the Energy and Commerce Committee, which oversees Title X of the Public Health Service Act. In 2010, a GAO report showed that America’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, received over $340 million from the Title X family planning program.
