Change you really can believe in: Pro-life clinic group awarded Title X grant

When the Department of Health and Human Services recently issued new guidelines related to the awarding of Title X funds, abortion advocates exploded. Women would be harmed, be denied access to basic reproductive care – would even die. But of course, those claims were all lies; in fact, the claims were made to hide two basic truths – that the new guidelines would hit Planned Parenthood in its overstuffed pocketbook, and that pro-life providers of actual healthcare would now have greater access to Title X funds.

Case in point: The Obria Group, Inc, which just last week announced that it will receive a 3-year $5.1 million grant of Title X funds from the US Department of Health and Human Services. Obria’s 32 clinics are “are fully-licensed community care clinics”, and they offer a full range of healthcare options for women. Obria also happens to be a pro-life organization, which is certain to rankle members of the financially lucrative abortion industry.

According to an Obria press release,

“With this grant, the administration has opened up a new avenue of health care choices for low income and underserved women and their families in California. Many women want the opportunity to visit a professional, comprehensive health care facility – not an abortion clinic – for their health care needs; today HHS gave women that choice.”

This is certainly one step in the right direction, but the list of Title X grantees is still dominated by one name: Planned Parenthood, which under one name or another will receive nearly $50 million in Title X grants during the same 3-year period.

There is much work left to be done.
