The Source rejects the premise that offering contraception encourages promiscuity, and frames its services as an intentional contrast from the rest of the pro-life movement. “It helps to show that not every pro-life activist says, ‘Put an aspirin between your legs and don’t have sex.’”
(Calvin Freiburger – LifeSiteNews) – As the Trump administration opens the door to legitimate health organizations receiving money that previously went to the abortion industry, pro-life pregnancy centers are hoping to seize the opportunity to grow. But one Texas-based pregnancy center alliance is trying to do so with an inconsistent stand on birth-control methods that can function as abortifacients.
In February, the Trump administration finalized the Protect Life Rule, which requires “clear financial and physical separation between Title X-funded projects and programs or facilities where abortion is a method of family planning” and bans “referral for abortion as a method of family planning.”
The rule is projected to cut almost $60 million from the $563.8 million Planned Parenthood received during the most recent fiscal year, provoking multiple lawsuits and leading Planned Parenthood to voluntarily withdraw from the program rather than comply with the new conditions.
