Obama proposes rule to prevent states from defunding Planned Parenthood

This story is from Life News, and I think it nicely shows just how pro-abortion Obama, and his Democrat Party supporters, are.


Pro-abortion President Barack Obama has proposed a new rule that would essentially prohibit states from defunding the Planned Parenthood abortion business and a leading pro-life member of Congress is not happy about it.

The proposed rule from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) could prevent states from blocking Title X funding (federal dollars for family planning services) to abortion companies like Planned Parenthood.

“This latest stunt from President Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services should surprise absolutely no one,” Rep. Diane Black told LifeNews.com

“We’ve known all along that the Obama Administration will go to untold lengths to protect its friends in the big abortion industry. After all, this Administration has previously used backdoor maneuvers to line Planned Parenthood’s pockets with Obamacare navigator grants and praised the abortion provider’s ‘high ethical standard’ even after it was caught trafficking in baby body parts,” Black said.

She continued: “Now, they have taken the unprecedented step of thwarting states’ rights with a shady proposed rule change that prevents states from funding the providers who will best serve their citizens.  In the coming days, I intend to lead a letter expressing the deep concerns of Members of Congress on this proposal, but we won’t stop there. We must use the full force of Congress and the grassroots strength of the national pro-life movement to defeat this absurd rule and prevent the Obama Administration from acting unilaterally to carry out political favors and prop up a scandal-ridden abortion provider.”

Many states that are run by Republican governors have defunded Planned Parenthood, e.g. Wisconsin, Texas, etc. And the reason why is not hard to see – less money means fewer abortions. Abortion providers are in the abortion business for the money. And if there is no money, then they get out of the business. Their whole business model relies on leftist governments transferring money from pro-life taxpayers to pro-abortion abortion providers.

Take a look at this story from Live Action News about billing fraud in Wisconsin:

An audit by Wisconsin’s Department of Health and Human Services has found that as many as two-thirds of all Medicaid payments to the state’s Planned Parenthood locations were fraudulent.

According to the audit of eight family planning facilities (five of which were operated by Planned Parenthood), roughly half of the funds they received came from fraudulent or otherwise-inappropriate billing practices. Auditors discovered that Planned Parenthood was the worst offender among facilities investigated, with the highest percentage of over-billing.

These practices included prescriptions not signed by valid prescribers, billing for quantities of medications that matched neither the prescribed nor dispensed quantities, failing to prove medication was even dispensed, reimbursement for unnecessary duplicative drugs, and more.


Obama looks at a story like that and says “keep the fraud going!” and his supporters agree. Every Democrat voter is pro-abortion, and every Democrat voter thinks that pro-life taxpayers should be paying their money to abortion providers.

  1. May God have mercy on the soul of Barack Hussein Obama II, and any unrepentant soul who voted for him. May he and those who voted for him come to know the Lord of Life, Christ Jesus.

  2. My goodness, the depths of evil in Progressive circles are hard to fathom sometimes. Even after everything which has happened with that particular company. But I guess the desire to protect the idols of their death-cult by law shouldn’t surprise us.

  3. WK, how about some pro-Trump posts? By not using this platform to justify electing Trump, everything you fight for and believe in, including bankrupting PP, will be set back a full generation. I can’t stand him but that is who Republicans and independents selected.

    I was quite impressed with Trump’s SCOTUS nominees. And in the absolute worst case if a President Trump were to nominated a liberal justice, Mitch McConnell is the stop-gap or even in a worst-worst scenario in which the Dems take the Senate, there won’t be enough Senate Dems to get to the required 60 votes for a Trump liberal nomination.

    That is why we must support Trump or you can kiss Citizen United, Hobbly Lobby, privitatization of health care, abortion eradication, closed borders, marriage incentives, welfare reform, 2nd amendment expansion, voter ID, military sequestration removal, gay marriage repeal, Christian wedding provider rights, homeschooling rights, reduced corporate taxes, Middle East peace, legalized marijuana repeal and most importantly protecting Christians from being fired from their jobs for being Christians a sad GOODBYE!!!!

    This why we must do everything in our power to support Trump.

    To quote Dennis Preager, a President HRC will most certainly destroy conservatism and our values, but for a President Trump, it is NOT certain he will destroy conservativism.

    I’ll take the “NOT certain” option and I hope you will to. Please start writing why we should support Trump 3 times a day.

    It’s crunch time!!!

    1. Alas, when Trump inevitably loses to Clinton (and he will, even if evangelicals decided to play the utilitarian pragmatist card) the reputation of Christianity in North America (and globally, this election impacts us all) will be tied to that of Trump. We will be seen as apologists for everything he stood for. Everything. We already are, actually. I spend too much time in my life defending my faith and conservative beliefs from being identified with Trump caricatures and dismissed on that basis. And if this continues it will only get worse. Simply put, Trump actually -is- destroying conservatism and naive Christian support of him is damaging our ability to witness.

  4. I must be unfamiliar with the US political system.

    Are the states simply subunits of the federal government, or do they have some autonomy?

    My foreign understanding was that legislative authority lay with the states, unless expressly given to the federal government in the constitution.

  5. I am still fuzzy on why you need a multi-million dollar corp to do what, in Canada, we are told is something that can be done in any clinic by a doctor who has been shown the process.

    Not endorsing abortion, but even if I did I still don’t see why you would need a dedicated service provider unless local doctors refused to provide the service.
