@Governor Perry, @Freedom2Care: Abortion Ideology Trumps Aid for Victims of Human Trafficking

Regarding Governor Perry’s comments about the Obama Administration’s  war on religion:

A grueling December 1 hearing by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee revealed the disturbing answers to these questions, in the process infuriating Republican committee members and others concerned with aiding victims of human trafficking.

By the end of an over three-hour long grilling of U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS) officials, one message had become clear about the Obama administration’s criteria for receiving the $4.5 million in federal grants for trafficking victims services:

Pro-life groups need not apply.

The regulations were written to prevent any pro-life group from receiving grant money:

The funding opportunity announcement for the “competitive” grant stipulated:

“The Director of [the HHS Office of Refugee Resettlement] will give strong preference to applicants that are willing to offer all of the services and referrals delineated under the Project Objectives. Applicants that are unwilling to provide the full range of the services and referrals under the Project Objectives must indicate this in their narrative ….”
The stipulations added that “…preference will be given to grantees under this [funding opportunity announcement] that will offer all victims referral to medical providers who can provide or refer for provision of treatment for sexually transmitted infections, family planning services and the full range of legally permissible gynecological and obstetric care…”
Translation: Participate in abortion or forget the grant.
