Biden Administration funnels another $750,000 to the Guttmacher Institute, the abortion industry’s think tank

By Dave Andrusko

President Joe Biden, committed to expanding subsidies to the Abortion Industry and its think tank in every which way possible, has “designated $750,000 in taxpayer funds to the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute for research that will reinforce the Biden administration’s radical abortion agenda,” Jordan Boyd reports. Believe it or not, the money comes out of Covid funds.

Boyd writes

The grant, which began on Sept. 1, was awarded out of Congress’s recent inflationary Covid spending to the Guttmacher Institute under the premise that the abortion industry experienced “service disruptions due to the Covid-19 pandemic and shifting policies and priorities” that require remedying.

The money given to Guttmacher is just a small fraction of the $6 million HHS promised to nearly a dozen of research organizations for data on expanding abortions in the United States.

The grant states “This work will result in data and findings readily available for policy makers, clinical providers, and program planners to leverage when designing programs and policies to increase equitable access, especially for those most in need of publicly funded [sexual reproductive health] services.”

Boyd adds

That includes providing data about “trends in client need and use of Title X services” that the Biden administration can use to justify its undoing of several Trump-era policies that protected taxpayer funds from going to abortions at home and overseas.

“We aim to disseminate data and findings from this work widely and effectively,” the grant concludes.

The Guttmacher Institute produces the kinds of studies that Biden and other pro-abortionists tout as the reason there should be no limitations on abortion.

As we reported yesterday, Guttmacher bemoaned that “100 Days Post-Roe: At Least 66 Clinics Across 15 US States Have Stopped Offering Abortion Care.”

More specifically, Guttmacher tells us, ”October 2, 2022 marked 100 days since the US Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, a decision that has resulted in states across the nation severely restricting access to abortion.” They add, “New Guttmacher research found that 100 days after the June 24 Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision, 66 clinics across 15 states have been forced to stop offering abortions.”

Dr. Randall K. O’Bannon, NRL Director of Education & Research, says “They will tell you that many of the pregnant women in these states will just go to a clinic in a neighboring state to have their abortions. Some will. But something they aren’t anxious to admit may be way more important — with the abortion clinic closed in their home state, many women will change their minds about seeking abortion and will choose to let their babies live.”
