Trump Just Gave Planned Parenthood A CRUSHING Blow With This DEVASTATING Bill
The wheels of the abortion industry will be turning slower now that President Trump has signed a bill allowing individual states to pull the funding plug on Planned Parenthood under Title X.
On Thursday, the president inked the legislation into law after both the House and Senate approved the bill earlier in the year.
When the bill became locked up for a vote in the Senate in March, Vice President Mike Pence cast the tie-breaker vote allowing the bill to move forward to the president's desk for approval.
Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of SBA List, a pro-life group, praised the move by Trump: “The resolution signed today simply ensures that states are not forced to fund an abortion business with Title X taxpayer dollars,” Dannenfelser said. “Rather, states have the option to spend money on comprehensive healthcare clinics that better serve women and girls.”
The legislation overturns a parting executive order from Barack Obama blocking states from taking funds away from abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood, which performs 34 percent of abortion procedures in the U.S.
In 2015, Planned Parenthood came under fire after an undercover crew exposed the agency's questionable practices regarding the sale of baby parts.
The multi-part video outraged pro-life legislators, who called for the immediate withdrawal of federal funds from Planned Parenthood.
Since the expose went public California Attorney General Xavier Bacerra announced two people will face criminal charges in connection with the media expose.
David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress each has been issued 15 felony counts for their work exposing Planned Parenthood.
According to the investigative group Open Secrets, Bacerra received $5,535 in campaign contributions from Planned Parenthood between 1998 and 2012. The family planning organization is largely taxpayer-funded.
