Just before he left office, Barack Hussein Obama signed an executive order forcing states to fund abortion by ensuring that abortionists like Planned Parenthood would get a chunk of states’ budgets regardless of the states’ actual desires or consent. Less than three months into his presidency, Donald Trump has done away with this ridiculous order.
Louder With Crowder reported that Trump just signed a bill to nix an Obama-era rule that blocked states from defunding healthcare providers for political reasons. Republicans used the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to role back the last-minute Obama regulation.
Republicans say that reversing the rule gives states the power to decide how they want to distribute Title X funding, while Democrats whine it’s just another push to hurt Planned Parenthood.
Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser has said that Obama’s HHS effort was a “parting gift” to the abortion industry. She thanked Trump after he signed the bill for what he did.
“This week the pro-life movement had two huge victories: first, the swearing-in of Justice Gorsuch and now, President Trump will undo former President Obama’s parting gift to the abortion industry,” Dannenfelser said in a statement. “The resolution signed today simply ensures that states are not forced to fund an abortion business with taxpayer dollars. Rather, states have the option to spend Title X money on comprehensive health care clinics that better serve women and girls.”
