WINNING! Trump to Cut Funding to Planned Parenthood
President Trump’s administration will announce its plans to cut funding to Planned Parenthood on Friday.
The Weekly Standard reported:
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.
