The Trump administration will announce plans today to cut federal funding to planned parenthood. This is one of the promises that President Trump made during the campaign and it is clear in the first year and a half of this President is not the typical politician. When he makes promises he intends to keep them.
The administration plans to block federal funds from being used for family planning if they are being used in the same facility where abortions are being performed.
The $286 million in funds, known as Title X, would also be cut from clinics or programs that support abortion or refer patients to where they can get one for the purpose of family planning, rather than in cases where a pregnancy would endanger women’s lives or health, or when it’s the result of rape or incest.
The proposal is likely to be challenged in court and as to be expected the baby killers are not excited about the proposed cut in federal funding.
“Everyone has the right to information about their healthcare — including information about safe, legal abortion, and every woman deserves the best medical care and information, no matter how much money she makes or where she lives. No matter what,” said Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. “They won’t get it under this rule.”
“Donald Trump ran as a pro-life candidate, and has governed as a pro-life president — another promise made and kept,” a Trump administration official said. “He continues working to protect the lives of the unborn, and ensure the abortion industry is no longer supported by taxpayers.”
This move will not stop abortions because abortion is one of the pillars of liberalism and they will find another way to pay for them through wealthy private donors. But it is time for the federal government to stop funding murder.
