President Trump Signs Law to Let States Defund Planned Parenthood

 
PJMEDIA by  Tyler O Neal --

Thursday, President Donald Trump signed a law reversing President Obama's last-minute attempt to force states to direct family planning funding to Planned Parenthood and other organizations that commit abortions.
"This week the pro-life movement had two huge victories: first, the swearing-in of Justice Gorsuch and now, President Trump will undo former President Obama's parting gift to the abortion industry," declared Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, in a statement on the bill's signing.
"The resolution signed today simply ensures that states are no forced to fund an abortion business with taxpayer dollars," Dannenfelser argued. "Rather, states have the option to spend Title X money on comprehensive health care clinics that better serve women and girls."

Obama issued the order in December of last year, barring states from withholding federal family planning funds from Planned Parenthood affiliates and other health clinics that provide abortions
