President Joe Biden’s Health and Human Services (HHS) has just awarded Planned Parenthood and its affiliates a whopping $256.6 million to expand their “family planning” services across the board, in effect, negating former President Donald Trump’s Title X rule.
Title X is the nation’s only national, federally funded family planning program.
In 2019, the Trump administration implemented a rule that prohibited any provider in the Title X network from promoting abortion to patients. As a result, seven state governments and Planned Parenthood dropped out of the Title X network, not wanting to have any restrictions on their ability to provide “family planning services” to their patients.
The Biden administration has since reversed the Trump policy, effective November 8, 2021.
Now, HHS has gone even further ensuring that abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood will be fully funded to the gills.

HHS Awards $256.6 Million to Expand and Restore Access to Equitable and Affordable Title X Family Planning Services Nationwidehttps://t.co/fhgU6zKyTS

“The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) awarded $256.6 million in grant funding to support 76 grantees to deliver equitable, affordable, client-centered, and high-quality family planning services. These grants will restore access to Title X services nationwide and fill service gaps caused by more than a quarter of Title X providers withdrawing from the program over the past two and a half years in response to the previous administration’s Title X rule,” the Biden agency announced, taking a gratuitous swipe at Trump in the process.
“These awards mark the first time since September 2019 when vital Title X services are available nationwide,” HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra proclaimed via the statement emanating from HHS. “As communities face unyielding assaults on reproductive health care, I am proud that our nation can help bolster access to essential health and family planning services.”
Not everyone sees it that way:

“In October 2021, HHS issued a new regulation, ‘Ensuring Access to Equitable, Affordable, Client-Centered, Quality Family Planning Services,’ that reinforced Title X’s emphasis on quality, equity, and access for all individuals who seek high-quality family planning services,” HHS continued in the release.
“For more than 50 years, Title X family planning clinics have provided breast and cervical cancer screening, contraceptive counseling and care, and STI/HIV testing and treatment to low-income or uninsured individuals,” proclaimed ADM Rachel L. Levine, Assistant Secretary for Health in the statement. “This announcement delivers on the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to restore access to affordable, quality family planning services.”
“Title X, which has perhaps never been more crucial in our nation’s history, is a lifeline to quality sexual and reproductive health care, including patient-centered care for LGBTQI+ individuals,” declared Jessica Swafford Marcella, who is the HHS Deputy Assistant Secretary for Population Affairs. “Today’s awards support providers across the country, who tirelessly dedicate themselves to the Title X program and the clients under their care.”
“Title X is the only federal grant program dedicated solely to providing individuals with comprehensive family planning and related preventive health services. The program supports a diverse network of clinics including state and local health departments, federally qualified health centers, hospital-based sites, and other private nonprofit and community-based health centers,” the statement concluded.
