In a victory for the pro-life movement, President Trump, following through on the Protect Life rule, stripped pro-abortion “health centers” like Planned Parenthood of millions of dollars of Title X funds and instead has reportedly redirected the money to pro-life, life-affirming medical clinics that do not commit abortions.
The Washington Examiner explained, “The Department of Health and Human Services announced Friday that the Christian organization, which also does not offer birth control, has been awarded the grants for the first time. Obria had applied for the grants, known as Title X, after it partnered with a health center that provides birth control.”
“The approval comes after the Trump administration announced new rules for organizations that receive the grants, which specify doctors cannot directly refer their patients for abortions and that say family planning has to be housed separately from abortion services.”
To no surprise, abortion activists which went into full freak-out mode over the move.
But, as Kristan Hawkins pointed out, elections have consequences, and in 2016, voters made it clear they were sick of groups like Planned Parenthood sponging off the taxpayer. Writing on Facebook, Hawkins noted, “ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES! News has just broken that abortion vendors like Planned Parenthood got less $$ from the HHS Title X family planning grants and Obria Group, a national network of life-affirming women’s health care centers that I have the honor of serving on the national advisory board for, received $5 million in federal funding. This is a FIRST for the pro-life movement and a HUGE win for taxpayers and the entire pro-life movement. >>>This is why electing anti-abortion politicians matters.”
Despite the smears from leftists hellbent on getting taxpayers like you and me to pay for their 39th-week abortions, today’s move is a victory for quality health care.
