Before you’ve finished reading this update, 5 more babies will be killed in the U.S.
By abortion – paid for by taxpayers through government funding of Planned Parenthood and its 665 “health centers.”
That they are health centers for pregnant women is open for debate…
They are without doubt NOT health centers for unborn babies.
When I was in New York with evangelical leaders in early 2016, one of candidate Trump’s promises – if elected president – was to defund abortion in the U.S.
A giant step in that direction has been made with President Trump’s executive order requiring “a bright line of physical as well as financial separation” in programs that receive Title X federal funding for family planning services.
The executive order stipulates the following:
- If family planning clinics accept federal funding, they can’t perform abortions or refer clients for abortions.
- Our tax dollars may not be used to destroy innocent lives
If Planned Parenthood clinics agree to not perform or promote abortions, they will still qualify for Title X funding. If they don’t agree to the standard, they won’t receive government – meaning taxpayer – funds.
Trump’s executive order is modeled after a Reagan administration policy.
Why is this important?
Because the executive order will most likely face legal challenges … but the issue already has been ruled constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court.
