President Donald Trump has made no attempt to hide the fact that he’s 100% pro-life and is 100% against women who choose to kill unborn children by the millions each year. Thanks to the President’s backing, one could easily argue that the pro-life movement is as strong as it’s ever been — and it’s getting stronger.
Part of the reason is because the Trump administration is making big moves that will allow states to crush these baby-killing factories by the dozens. Their latest move did exactly that…
States who manage Medicaid in concert with the federal government will now be able to cut Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood clinics and other abortion providers, thanks to the Trump Administration.
According to the Washington Examiner, the Trump Administration has issued an order rescinding an Obama-era directive from April 2016, warning states that “restricting Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood could violate federal law.”
The Obama directive was issued as a rebuke to mostly Republican state legislators who floated the idea of blocking Planned Parenthood from receiving Medicare payments — a key part of Planned Parenthood’s funding — after several Planned Parenthood clinics were caught on video offering to sell fetal tissue and other aborted baby parts for medical research.
The Department of Justice opened its own investigation into Planned Parenthood’s fetal tissue sales in December, and an assistant attorney general requested complete copies of redacted documents obtained during a Senate Judiciary Committee investigation into the gruesome practice.
It is against the law to profit from the sale of any human organ or tissue.
Health and Human Services Secretary Charmaine Yoest called the Trump Administration’s decision to rescind the Obama-era directive a return to previous standards of Medicaid reimbursement.
“States who run Medicaid jointly have had a say in whether providers in borders (are) eligible to participate in Medicaid program,” Yoest told media. She went on to say that the federal government would not push states to defund Planned Parenthood, and that states should consider the change a recognition of their right to handle health care funds the way they see fit rather than the federal government “putting a thumb on the scale.”
The move marks the first effort by the Trump Administration to take an active role in helping states cut abortion providers off from taxpayer dollars.
SHARE this all over social media if you’re proud of the Trump administration for clearing the way for states to defund these anti-life baby-murdering factories.
