Trump & Repub Congress attack PP



Trump Signs Law Taking Aim at Planned Parenthood Funding

President Trump signed legislation on Thursday aimed at cutting off federal funding to Planned Parenthood and other groups that perform abortions, a move cheered by conservatives who have clamored to impose curbs on reproductive rights.

The measure nullifies a rule completed in the last days of the Obama administration that effectively barred state and local governments from withholding federal funding for family planning services related to contraception, sexually transmitted infections, fertility, pregnancy care, and breast and cervical cancer screening from qualified health providers — regardless of whether they also performed abortions. The new measure cleared Congress last month with Vice President Mike Pence casting the tiebreaking vote in the Senate.


People sometimes say that if only Planned Parenthood would quit doing abortions, they wouldn't have all these problems. What those people don't seem to understand is that because of pro-life violence, the murder of doctors, the bombing of clinics, etc., the procedure that was once performed in doctors' offices, hospitals, and clinics as part of the full range of women's reproductive care, is now done in very few places aside from Planned Parenthood. PP is not going to let women down.
