Text of the speech follows:

Mr. Speaker, I rise today in strong support of changes to Title X family planning funds.

Currently, abortion providers like Planned Parenthood are eligible to receive these Title X funds.

But abortion is not family planning; it is family ending.

It ends the lives of innocent children.

It is an affront to the very definition of family.

Title X is Planned Parenthood’s second largest funding stream, providing around $80 million a year.

America’s largest abortion provider, which ends over 321,000 lives each year, should never receive a single dime of taxpayer dollars.

I strongly support efforts to turn off the Title X funding stream for Planned Parenthood and urge the Department of Health and Human Services to issue new regulations for the Title X program that will stop funding for programs that include abortion. There are much better…and life-affirming options than allowing Planned Parenthood access to taxpayer dollars.
