President Trump signs law restoring states’ right to defund Planned Parenthood

On his first full day of work in the White House on January 23, 2017, a day after the 44th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, President Trump fulfilled a campaign promise by signing an executive order to defund overseas abortion agencies. {See “Trump fulfills 3 promises in first day of work as POTUS, including defund International Planned Parenthood”)

On April 3, 2017, President Trump put an end to the U.S.’s $75 million funding  of a United Nations abortion agency — the UN Population Fund.

Ten days later on April 13, 2017, President Trump signed into law a joint Congressional resolution, H.J.Res. 43, enabling states to defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion mills.

H.J.Res. 43 repeals one of Obama’s last malevolent acts as POTUS.

In December 2016, Obama had bestowed his parting gift to the abortion industry with a Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) rule banning states from withholding Title X federal “family planning” grants to abortion clinics. At the time, HHS explained that the rule was created in reaction to states that tried to stop funding abortion providers.

H.J.Res. 43, that President Trump signed into law, reads:

Providing for congressional disapproval under chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, of the final rule submitted by Secretary of Health and Human Services relating to compliance with title X requirements by project recipients in selecting subrecipients.

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That Congress disapproves the rule submitted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services relating to compliance with title X requirements by project recipients in selecting subrecipients (81 Fed. Reg. 91852; December 19, 2016), and such rule shall have no force or effect.

On April 14, 2017, speaking for all pro-lifers, Jeanne Mancini, president of the March for Life, said:

“Today we thank President Donald Trump for restoring states’ freedom to direct taxpayer dollars away from abortion providers in favor of supporting community health centers that deliver comprehensive women’s care, and already outnumber abortion providers 20 to 1.”

Applauding H.J.Res. 43, Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser urges Congress to take up more legislation to strip Planned Parenthood and abortion providers of other federal funds like Medicaid reimbursements, and redirect those federal funds to health providers that do not perform abortions.

Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) introduced H.J. Res. 43 to the U.S. House of Representatives, which nullified the HHS rule. Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) sponsored H.J. Res. 43 in the Senate. The measure passed the House easily and then narrowly passed the Senate, with Vice President Mike Pence as the tie-breaking vote.

If the Trump administration never does anything else, H.J. Res. 43 alone is a confirmation of the rightness of our votes last November 8 for Trump-Pence.

And don’t let anyone tell you that Republicans are no different from the party of  Demonrats.

Kansas Episcopal Church celebrates 42 years of abortion with fundraiser for Planned Parenthood

St. James Episcopal Church

Michael F. Haverluck reports for One News Now that on Jan. 22, 2015, to celebrate the 42nd anniversary of the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that opened the floodgates to the killing of the unborn in America, St. James Episcopal Church in Wichita, Kansas, is hosting a “Chili for Choice” event to bring more money to Planned Parenthood of Kansas & Mid-Missouri.

In other words, a supposedly Christian church is hosting a fund-raiser to abort kill unborn human beings.

St. James Episcopal is encouraging its congregation to not only buy tickets or sponsorships, but to invite friends and family to endorse abortion-on-demand. Ticket prices range from an “income-sensitive” $20 all the way up to $1,000.

Not that Planned Parenthood (PP) actually needs the Episcopal church’s fundraiser because:

1. U.S. taxpayers — including taxpayers in Wichita, Kansas — already “subsidize” PP to the tune of $528 million in fiscal year 2013-2014 — more than $1.4 million a day — or 41% of PP’s revenue. In fact, PP has raked in over $3 billion in taxpayer funds during President Barack “Lucifer” Obama’s 6 years in office — an increase of 43% since Obama took office in 2009. Not coincidentally, abortions have increased 8% during his presidency. That would account for why PP has hailed Obama as its “champion”; that is also why Dr. James Dobson called Obama the “abortion president.”

2. Planned Parenthood really doesn’t need St. James Episcopal Church’s chili fundraiser because PP is extremely profitable. An analysis by the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List discovered that the abortion mill reported more than $127 million in excess revenue, and more than $1.4 billion in net assets.

Back to St. James Episcopal Church.

Although Susan B. Anthony List found that abortions made up 94% of Planned Parenthood’s “services” in 2013, a representative of St. James answering the phones told a pro-life advocate that PP doesn’t do abortions.

Wichita’s St. James is not the only U.S. Episcopal church in league with the Devil.

LifeNews reported last September that in Louisiana, an Episcopal priest circulated a letter calling Christians to support the construction of a new Planned Parenthood abortion facility in New Orleans – the abortion epicenter of Louisiana.

Here’s something you can do about taxpayers being forced to subsidize Planned Parenthood’s baby killing —

Tell your Congressional representatives to support the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act.

Life News reports that more than 80 House members of the new 114th Congress have re-introduced a bill to defund Planned Parenthood. Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act would ensure that Title X family planning grants are used for their intended purpose and are prohibited from being used by organizations that provide abortions or fund those that do.

Representative Diane Black, a pro-life congresswoman from Tennessee, is the lead sponsor of the bill along with Reps. Bill Flores (R-TX), Jackie Walorski (R-IN), Pro-Life Caucus Co-Chairman Chris Smith (R-NJ), and Rep. Joe Pitts (R-PA).
