Family Council has always opposed abortion and has always believed that public funds should never be used to pay for abortion or subsidize abortion providers.
This week we joined other pro-life organizations in signing a letter urging Congress to redirect public funding from Planned Parenthood–the nation’s largest abortion provider–to other clinics and organizations that do not perform abortions.
The letter reads in part,
It is time for Congress to re-direct funds away from Planned Parenthood. Instead, fund community health centers, which outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities by at least 20 to one and offer a full range of primary health care, unlike Planned Parenthood.
Others who signed the letter include Tony Perkins of Family Research Council; Paul Weber of Family Policy Alliance; Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life; and many others.
Jerry is the founder and president of Family Council. He began Family Council in 1989 after a successful effort to amend the Arkansas Constitution to prevent the use of public funds for abortions. He and his wife reside in Little Rock. They have four sons.
