Planned Parenthood has made the decision to withdraw from the federal Title X family planning program and leave behind $60 million that could be used to assist non-abortion patients, but the abortion giant is still receiving over $500 million annually in taxpayer funding.
For the first time in nearly 50 years, Planned Parenthood is being forced out of the Title X program, meaning people across the country who are already struggling to make ends meet might not be able to access the care they need.

The organization’s decision to opt out of the Title X program – rather than end referrals for abortions to women and girls – is not stopping its federal taxpayer funding stream from the Medicaid program via Congress.
Planned Parenthood’s most recent annual report shows it received over $500 million from the Medicaid program through reimbursements. The group’s combined Medicaid reimbursements and family planning grants amounted to $563.8 million in year 2017-2018 – $20 million more than the $543.7 million it took in from taxpayers in 2016-2017.
