U.S. Senator Ben Sasse released the following statement after the administration released its rule ensuring the prohibition of taxpayer funding of abortion providers through Title X, an action Sasse and others called for recently.  

“This is welcome news. Nebraskans have compassion for babies, for moms, and for families. This announcement recognizes the important distinction between life-affirming community health centers and abortion facilities like Planned Parenthood. This isn’t about cutting funding, it’s about keeping Title X funds – public tax dollars – from abortion businesses. These regulatory steps are good, and it’s time for Congress to step to the plate and put lasting pro-life policies up for votes in the Senate.”
