President Trump has brought an end to an Obama-era rule allowing state funds to go to organizations providing abortions.
Previously, the Obama administration demanded that state and local government funding be distributed to health providers that perform abortions. Many Americans felt as though their tax dollars were funding the deaths of countless babies, and would rather their money go elsewhere.
Naturally, Democrats see this as an assault on “women’s health”, claiming that the bill is nothing more than an effort to defund Planned Parenthood (more like un-planned parenthood).
Executive VP for Planned Parenthood, Dawn Laguens, says that the organization “strongly opposes President Trump’s willingness to undermine millions of women’s access to birth control.” Wait one second, did this lady just refer to abortion as BIRTH CONTROL? Wow, that says a lot about the kind of people Republicans are having to deal with.
Again, this bill merely takes away funding from places that perform abortions. If Planned Parenthood wants to keep killing babies, they can, but taxpayers won’t be paying to keep the doors open. They could always stop offering abortions, and continue to receive funds, but that would upset a lot of people wearing those silly pink hats.
Laguens says that “Four million people depend on the Title X family planning program, and by signing this bill, President Trump disregards their health and well-being,” but that doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense. In a lot of circumstances, abortions take place because there was no family planning. Of course, to a lot of people an abortion is practically synonymous with other forms of birth control.
Planned Parenthood, and other organizations like them, will now have to rely on outside funding to continue to provide abortion services. The question is, are there enough people willing to give their own money to fund other people’s abortions? There’s no law stopping the liberals of America from giving away their cash to Planned Parenthood, but that isn’t likely to happen. They won’t even vote, and that’s free.
Here’s where a lot of people get disconnected. Abortion is totally legal in the United States. However, there is no way in hell you, or anyone else should have to pay for an abortion. Personally, I would never want my hard earned money going to such services. Nothing is stopping people from paying for their own surgeries. Who knows, maybe future generations will contemplate the consequences of their actions. I’m just glad to know that my tax dollars aren’t funding the genocide of America’s future.
