All totaled, 25 organizations have received federal grants from Health and Human Services for so-called drug harm reduction. One of the groups is Planned Parenthood of Greater New York. It is a recipient of one grant totaling nearly $400,000.
Rita Diller, who heads STOPP International, a division of American Life League, calls it “outrageous” that HHS is giving any funds to the abortion industry to reduce harm.
“We know that Planned Parenthood violently ends the lives of over one million babies every three years by abortion,” she says. “I mean, how much more harm could you cause? It's just backwards.”
According to the HHS plan, drug-infested neighborhoods will be visited by caring people who will provide food and clean needles to drug users.
“And they might even give them some Narcan to revive them, when they go down,” Diller says, “because they're using their new fresh needles to pump extremely dangerous street drugs into their bodies.”
Narcan is used to revive people who have dangerously overdosed.
