Republicans have been calling for it.
Pro-lifers have been calling for it.
And Donald Trump has been saying that he’s going to do it. Well, that moment has finally come. President Trump has just officially defunded Planned Parenthood.
They will no longer be receiving the $50-$60 million per year that there were receiving as a member of the Title X program.
As LifeNews reported in March, the Trump administration finalized an administrative rule that would partially defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business and deprive it of as much as $60 million in taxpayer dollars. This action adds to President Trump’s record of defunding the Planned Parenthood abortion company.
The abortion chain receives about $50 million to $60 million in Title X funds annually, but that could change now that the new rules are being implemented. The administration’s changes to Title X family planning grants have angered the abortion chain Planned Parenthood, prompting a lawsuit, but they provide hope for life-affirming pregnancy centers, which can now compete with the abortion giant for the federal funds.
Title X funds are supposed to be used to help low-income women and men receive birth control, cancer screenings and other health care services. While the tax money cannot be used to pay for abortions, it indirectly funds Planned Parenthood’s vast abortion business.
So what’s Planned Parenthood’s next move?
Well, they’ve already taken the next step, believe it or not.
According to CBS News,
In a conference call with reporters on Monday, Planned Parenthood’s new leader,, announced all the health care clinic’s affiliates would be sending letters to the Department of Health and Human Services Monday, formally announcing their resignation from Title X. She warned that without Planned Parenthood, low-income women in rural areas would struggle to find affordable birth control options.
“For too many people struggling to make ends meet, it may be that they may go without care,” Johnson said on the call.
