Rep. Marsha Blackburn Seeks Cosponsors to Restrict Title X Support for Abortion Businesses


Representative Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) has introduced the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act of 2013 which would stop HHS from providing federal family planning assistance under Title X to abortion businesses unless they certify they won’t provide and refer abortions.
