On Friday, the Trump administration will announce a proposed rule to cut taxpayer funding to abortionists like Planned Parenthood under Title X....The executive action is based on a 1988 Reagan regulation.
The proposal would require a bright line of physical as well as financial separation between Title X programs and any program (or facility) where abortion is performed, supported, or referred for as a method of family planning, a Trump administration official tells.
The 1970 law establishing Title X states: None of the funds appropriated under this title shall be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning. But in the 1970s and 1980s, the law was interpreted to allow Title X programs to refer patients for abortions, be co-located with abortion clinics, and lobby for pro-abortion policiesso long as federal dollars did not directly fund abortions. In 1988, President Reagan's secretary of Health and Human Services issued regulations to end these practices that blurred the line between funding contraception and promoting abortion.
The 1988 Reagan regulation was immediately challenged in court and never enforced, but it was upheld by the Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision in the case Rust v. Sullivan. By the time abortionists might have actually lost their Title X funds, however, Bill Clinton took office and killed the Reagan regulation, a policy that has remained in effect to this day. This anti-abortion regulation wasnt reinstated by the George W. Bush administration.

continued.......a Trump administration official tells TWS. This proposal does not necessarily defund Planned Parenthood, as long as theyre willing ‘to disentangle taxpayer funds from abortion as a method of family planning’, which is required by the Title X law.
If and when Title X prohibits funding for abortionists, Planned Parenthood would still keep the overwhelming majority of its funding, which is mostly provided under Medicaid and may only be cut off through legislation signed into law by the president.
No good Ryan and McConnell wouldn’t do it.
Winning. This is a big thing!
BTTT! Will be watching this!
Toss in NPR
Meanwhile, the sniveling #NeverTrumpets continue to seethe over Trump’s style of communication while refusing to recognize his comparatively profound conservative accomplishments and promising agenda.
If Trump found a way to personally adopt and care for every babe targeted for abortion, the #NeverTrump faction would at best sneer and remain quiet.
Too bad we didn’t have today’s Trump 20 years ago.
Indeed, it’s HUGE!
.....”Too bad we didnt have todays Trump 20 years ago”...
There is a time for everything under the sun.
That will take away a dark cloud thats been hanging over our country. Gods blessings dont flow freely to a country that slaughters it children.
... Or that treats mothers meanly ....
Obamacare funds abortion, including convenience abortions, in violation of the Hyde Amendment.
The laws are just not enforced.
One piece of the puzzle. It will take a few more, but it is low hanging fruit.
It is SOOOOOO much better to cut “PlannedParenthood” subsidies... than it is to continue funding PP so PP can cut up babies alive in the womb (or just after birth?)
the first kind of cutting is SUPER MUCH BETTER than the second
Doo, Doo, doot doo...Breaking News. A federal judge out if Hawaii has preemptively blocked President Trump’s prposed cut of Planned Patenthood funding. Stay tuned for more details. This is ABC News.
A close friend was a top manager at a National Bureau of Standards facility. He was in charge of a major project to upgrade NBS's computer and networking infrastructure nationwide. But he was allocated many tens of millions of $$ more than needed.
He was given explicit instructions on what to do with the overage. He was required to spend it all on upgrading PP's nationwide networking infrastructure and computers.
With such a huge windfall, PP was free to redirect the funds they would have had to earmark for IT, to instead go wherever they wanted it to, including direct funding of abortions.
It was thoroughly disgusting
#NeverTrumpets are a loathsome bunch and I despise every last single one of them just as much as I do libtard zombies.
