Pres. Trump allows states to block Planned Parenthood money

President Trump, who recently gave a speech about the lovely Syrian babies were killed in a Syrian gas attack, privately signed a resolution on Thursday that will allow states to refuse to give federal funding to family planning centers that provide prenatal care to babies, also presumably attractive.

The Senate passed the bill in late March and required Vice President Mike Pence - acting in the capacity of president of the Senate - to break the tie.

Title X was enacted in 1970 by former President Richard Nixon. "Four million people depend on the Title X family planning program, and by signing this bill, President Trump disregards their health and well-being".

Trump has already received applause from the pro-life movement by reinstating the Mexico City Policy, which bars taxpayer funds for overseas abortions, defunding the United Nations Population Fund, which was complicit in China's cruel one-child policy, and succeeding in getting Neil Gorsuch confirmed to the Supreme Court.

Republicans and abortion opponents said the new law will let states divert money now going to groups that perform abortions to organizations that do not.

While the bill does not defund Planned Parenthood directly, it is part of a wider GOP attack on the women's health provider - and will likely encourage further efforts to cut federal funding off from Planned Parenthood.

Aside from menacing the Avengers , it looks like Brolin will be teaming up with the Merc with a Mouth on the big screen too. He'll now work alongside actor Ryan Reynolds, who reprises his role of the titular character in "Deadpool 2".

"We want to shift funding from Planned Parenthood to Community Health Centers". Though the president and fellow Republicans were unable to overturn the Affordable Care Act after a contentious battle in the House last month, with HJ Res 43 now law, they've achieve at least some of the goals they hoped to attain through the stymied Obamacare repeal.

"This bill is simply about states' rights, and I am pleased to see President Trump putting the American people ... back in the driver's seat, empowering states like Tennessee to steer their Title X funds away from abortion-centric facilities like Planned Parenthood", said Black, the lead sponsor of House Joint Resolution 43.

Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, similarly said that by signing the bill, Trump thumbed his nose at millions of Americans.

The new law applies to federal family-planning money, which amounts to about $60 million a year, the Congressional Budget Office said in a 2015 report.

This move is the latest in a growing list of moves that are slowing chipping away at access to reproductive health care services.

She said women's "worst fears" are coming true. And while anti-Planned Parenthood politicians argue that people can go elsewhere, for many low-income and rural women and men, Planned Parenthood clinics are their only option. Mostly women, but some men also, all there to fight for the organization. "They know speaking up and speaking out can change the direction of this government", she added.
