This week, President-elect Donald Trump announced his pick – Tom Price -for the head of the Health & Human Services Dept. This was a big deal and something that pro-lifers have been watching closely.
HHS has a lot of power in the healthcare world. They were also the ones that drafted the rules about forcing companies to pay for abortifacients. Tons of Obamacare rules go through HHS as well.
Rep. Tom Price is a great choice, as many pro-life groups have already pointed out. He is an orthopedic surgeon who obviously understands the healthcare system. He also despises Obamacare. He is also 100% pro-life, which is forcing Planned Parenthood and their buddies to curl up in a safe space somewhere.
Cecile Richards released a lengthy statement yesterday, which was nothing short of their usual talking points about how Republicans hate women so much that they want to take away their cancer screenings, birth control, and “access” to affordable healthcare, which means they want to make abortion illegal and *gasp* defund Planned Parenthood.
Say goodbye to that hefty salary Cecile.
It’s usually a very good sign for the pro-life movement and the abortion industry and their allies throw such a public hissy fit.

But the thing is, only Planned Parenthood is to blame for this mess. They are the ones that have been caught time and again participating in shady, and possibly criminal, business practices. They are the ones who can’t seem to reconcile their books as to not defraud taxpayers of millions of dollars, and they are the ones who have pushed their radical agenda on the American people, boosting their preferred presidential candidate with over $30 million, only to have lost.
Millennials in particular don’t care one bit for the kind of extreme stance that Planned Parenthood takes on abortion. A poll from the Institute for Pro-Life Advancement showed that only 17% of Millennials believe abortion should be legal for any reason at any point in the pregnancy. Heck, Planned Parenthood even takes that a step further by not supporting legislation that would protect the baby if he/she was born alive after an abortion – and then advocating for the right to abort that child outside of the womb:
No wonder Planned Parenthood is flailing around. They lost big time and need to come to terms with the fact that women aren’t buying what they’re selling. So go put that lipstick on and get back to us.
