States to sue Donald Trump over Planned Parenthood funding

March 2, 2019

  Last week the Trump administration issued a new rule which would cut Federal funding to Planned Parenthood by tens of millions of dollars. While that sounds like quite a bit of money in reality it is only a small portion of the money this organization receives annually from the Federal Government.

  This new rule is actually an old rule which has been reinstated and it prevents abortions from being provided at facilities which accept Title X funding. Needless to say, abortion proponents see this as an attack on a woman’s right to choose and several states are filing a lawsuit to stop the new rule from being put in place.

  Here is more:

Democrat-led states allied with Planned Parenthood are challenging the Trump administration’s new rule that would block about $60 million in family planning funding to the organization because it provides and refers for abortions.

Officials from Washington, Oregon, Connecticut, New York, and California say they will sue the Trump administration over the new rule that marks a clear line between abortion and family planning.

  This was to be expected and recent history has shown us how this will go. There will be a judge out there who issues a stay against this rule while this makes its way through the court system and it will eventually make it to the Supreme Court where all bets are off.

  Democrats have been hoping to ramp up the war on women angle for the 2020 election, they have been trying to bait the Republicans into the fight with the whole infanticide issue, and now with this new rule change. Democrats like to accuse the Republicans of holding illegal immigrants as political hostages but they are doing just that with the lives of unborn babies.

    People having abortions should be sued for not having taking their free birth control pill, the morning after pill or buying and using a prophylactic-you know a rubber, a trojan, a morgen wrapper..
