Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Liz Cheney’s statement on President Trump and Health and Human Services’ Title X reform.
“I strongly support President Trump’s recent actions to protect the sanctity of human life by allowing states to defund abortion providers by separating Title X programs and services from clinics, such as Planned Parenthood, that provide abortion services. I recently sent a letter to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar requesting similar action to Title X reform that has been long overdue. President Trump has fought for our religious freedoms by issuing conscience regulations to protect groups such as the Little Sisters of the Poor, appointing federal judges who are protecting our constitutional rights and advocating for the Pain-Capable Unborn Protection Act that the House passed last year. It’s our moral obligation to do everything we can to protect the sanctity of life, and I applaud President Trump’s efforts to fight for the most vulnerable among us.”
