Since taking control of the House this year, Congressional Democrats have shown they have two priorities: Sabotaging President Trump and defending their friends at Planned Parenthood.
Nancy Pelosi’s very first action as Speaker was to marshal a vote seeking to restore Planned Parenthood’s international funding from American taxpayers. Fortunately, that effort was thwarted by Senate Republicans and President Trump.
Now, Democrats are busy crafting a bloated budget that would require the Trump Administration to restore Title X funding of Planned Parenthood. Mr. Trump has led a drive to enforce federal law, requiring a separation between abortion facilities and agencies receiving “family planning” services. The new HHS rules will force Planned Parenthood to choose between its abortion business and its dependence upon American taxpayers.
Pelosi’s budget would also increase the amount of subsidies for “family planning” by some $114 million – to something over $400 million each year.
Those Democrats crying about the “threat to women’s health” are executing a blatant propaganda campaign which is lacking in facts or truth. The simple fact is that President Trump did not end Title X funding – or even reduce the amount of money the federal government is pouring into “family planning”. He has simply re-directed that money away from the Abortion Industry. In fact, some of the money has already been awarded to pro-Life pregnancy care centers – an astonishing development.
We can only pray that the American people will restore a conservative majority to the U.S. House next year after we have all paid the price for allowing Pelosi to regain the Speaker’s gavel; two years’ worth of radical dysfunction should be enough to convince voters that we are simply not being served by the Democrat majority.
