President Trump just signed a bill that will allow states to defund Planned Parenthood, along with other government-funded organizations performing abortions under Title X, per Live Action.
The bill is a reversal of an Obama-era policy.
Check it out:
The U.S. House voted to overturn Obama’s executive action in February; in March, the Senate also approved legislation to reverse the rule, with Vice President Mike Pence casting the tie-breaking vote. The law has support from individuals in charge of Medicare and Medicaid.
Obama had a legacy of supporting Planned Parenthood, which commits over 34 percent of abortions in the United States. In addition to the executive action, Obama vetoed legislation defunding Planned Parenthood and even sought to punish states that sought to redirect funding away from the abortion giant.
This is not the first move Trump has made in the direction of pro-life advocates. The President also recently defunded the UN’s Population Fund, which pays for abortions across the globe, and reinstated the Mexico City policy.
