Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Kevin Cramer issued the following statement today after President Donald Trump signed H.J. Res 43 to overturn former President Obama’s regulation, which forces states to fund Planned Parenthood clinics using Title X funding:

“I applaud the overturning of this dreadful regulation, which is a huge win for the Pro-Life Movement. States should not be forced to use Title X funding at abortions clinics when that same funding can be used for family planning services at other providers such as community health centers and hospitals that do not perform abortions. Congress and the Trump Administration will continue to move forward ensuring that religious liberty and the sanctity of life is protected by the Federal Government.”

This is the 13th bill signed by the President using the Congressional Review Act (CRA), which allows Congress to overturn recently finalized regulations by the previous Administration.
