Pro-Abortion Advocacy Coalition

The National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association (NFPRHA) is a Washington, D.C.-based left-wing association of family planning professionals across the United States. The group counts among its members Planned Parenthood affiliates and abortion clinics. The group also counts as its members family planning administrators in all levels of government in the country.

The organization is known for its abortion advocacy. Among the actions the organization has taken to fight for expanded legal and taxpayer-funded abortion is suing the United States government over restrictions on the taxpayer funding of abortion. In addition to promoting government funding of abortion, the organization works to expand the role of government in health care more broadly.

Overview

The National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association is an association of family planning and abortion providers. The organization works primarily to promote abortion and an expanded role for government in health care. [1]

The membership consists of both private and public sector members. The group has members that work with Planned Parenthood and other family planning and pro-abortion organizations. The group includes membership administrators of Medicaid family planning programs and family planning administrators in state, county, and local health departments. [2]

Issues

The organization works on various family planning, abortion, and healthcare-related issues. One of the major issues the organization works on is promoting access to abortion, including taxpayer funding for it. The organization works for requiring insurance companies to cover abortions. [3]

The organization also supports Obamacare and its contraception mandate that requires insurance companies to provide contraception at no cost. It also engaged in helping to sign up people for insurance under Obamacare. [4]

The organization is also involved in encouraging more contraception services and other health care expansions for non-whites. It claims that an intersectional approach is needed to eliminate these healthcare disparities. [5]

Lawsuit

In 2018, the ACLU filed a lawsuit on behalf of the organization challenging Trump administration rules that barred the use of Title X family planning funds to organizations that perform abortions. The lawsuit claimed that the Trump administration’s rules would make contraception more difficult to access for low-income women. It also alleged that the Trump administration was shifting money to organizations that would encourage women not to have sex outside of marriage instead of providing them with contraception. [6]

In 2019, a federal judge ruled in favor of the ACLU and NFPRHA’s lawsuit, blocking the Trump administration’s rule. [7]

Leadership

Clare Coleman is the president and CEO of National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association. She has been serving in that role since 2009. Before that she was the CEO of Planned Parenthood Mid-Hudson Valley from 2006 to 2009. [8]

Financials

According to the 2018 Form 990, National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association raised $5.8 million and spent $5.1 million. The largest expenditure was on policy and communication, which includes lobbying for policies that expand access to abortion, contraception, and other family planning services. It also communicates the impacts of any proposed legislation and regulations to its members. [9]
