Planned Parenthood is an organization whose practices leave a very sour taste in my mouth. Their founder, Margaret Sanger, was determined to do her best to exterminate the black race, hence the presence of many of their clinics as close as possible to non-white neighborhoods.
The big scam that has been perpetrated by Planned Parenthood on American women is that abortion is an acceptable method of “birth control” when in fact it is the murder of a living human being. Planned Parenthood has tried to hide their activities behind the label of “women’s health care” and as such, and have managed to bilk taxpayers out of billions of dollars over the years.
On the bright side, the Trump administration has been pursuing action to defund them, and a recent ruling approves defunding tens of millions of the dollars that have previously been allocated to Planned Parenthood.
A federal appeals court today ruled President Donald Trump can partially defund planned Parenthood while the abortion business’ lawsuit against his administration’s new rules moves forward.
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.
Last month, a three-judge panel from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted the Trump administration’s request to lift national injunctions ordered by lower federal courts in Oregon and Washington state, as well as a statewide injunction in California. The panel said the Trump administration will likely prevail in the legal battle over the Title X family planning program since similar Reagan-era rules were upheld by the Supreme Court almost 30 years ago.
The full Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals then blocked the defunding while considering the case further.
Today, the entire appeals court upheld defunding in a 7-4 decision with Republican-appointed judges upholding defended and Democrat judges forcing Americans to fund the abortion business.
The way I see it, the best thing that could happen is for Planned Parenthood to be shut down entirely. They’ve been the driving force behind the murder of hundreds of thousands of innocent babies. Considering that one person’s life is literally priceless, the cost to humanity is incalculable. We’ll never know what cure has gone undiscovered, what scientific invention was lost, or what great leaders have been lost that we will never be able to admire and follow.
