WINNING! Here’s The Trump Plan To Cut Planned Parenthood Funding
President Trump’s move on Friday could potentially accomplish what Congress could not thereby fulfilling his campaign promise to “defund” Planned Parenthood.
The proposed rules would require facilities receiving federal family planning funds to be physically separate from those that perform abortions. Ronald Reagan implemented similar restrictions.
“A win like this would immediately disentangle taxpayers from the abortion business and energize the grassroots as we head into the critical midterm elections.” -Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List

Now let’s talk about the millions of state Medicaid dollars that are funding abortions. My tax dollars should not be used for the murder of innocent babies… OOPS, I mean “Legal Abortion.” Go find a Doctor and pay him with your own money if you really are this careless while having so many forms of birth control available. Typical Liberals want everyone else to pay their way.
On Friday, the Trump administration will announce a proposed rule to cut taxpayer funding to abortionists like Planned Parenthood under Title X, a program that provides $260 million annually in federal funding for contraception and other “family planning” initiatives.
“The proposal would require a bright line of physical as well as financial separation between Title X programs and any program (or facility) where abortion is performed, supported, or referred for as a method of family planning,” a Trump administration official tells THE WEEKLY STANDARD in an email.
In December, the Justice Department launched a full investigation into Planned Parenthood over their alleged practices of selling fetal tissue.
Conservatives and pro-life advocates have fiercely fought to cut off Planned Parenthood’s $500 million in annual government subsidies.
Hillary Clinton thanked Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, 60, after she confirmed in January she was resigning from her post after 12 years of overseeing the murder of millions of unborn babies.
Good riddance to Cecile Richards and Planned Parenthood.
