Leaders from a dozen states are fighting back against Joe Biden’s new rule forcing taxpayers to fund the billion-dollar abortion chain Planned Parenthood.

Life News reports:

On Monday, 12 state attorneys general filed a lawsuit challenging Biden’s rule for the Title X family planning program, saying taxpayer-funded family planning clinics should be physically and financially independent of abortion facilities, the Washington Times reports.

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost, who led the lawsuit, said they want to restore the 2019 rules President Donald Trump’s administration put in place to ensure that tax dollars are not being used to support abortions.

“You can’t ‘follow the money’ when all the money is dumped into one pot and mixed together,” Yost said in a statement. “Federal law prohibits taxpayer funding of abortion — and that law means nothing if the federal money isn’t kept separate. That, frankly, is the real reason behind the rule.”

Title X funds are not supposed to be used for abortions. The program provides family planning services to low-income individuals, and the law states that Title X grants may not be used “where abortion is a method of family planning.”

Prior to 2019, however, Planned Parenthood was one of the largest recipients of Title X funding, receiving about $60 million a year. Under the Trump administration, the abortion chain chose to leave the program rather than comply with the rules. Those rules required Title X recipients to make their abortion businesses physically and financially separate from the program and to stop referring women for abortions.
