House Votes to Reverse Obama's Planned Parenthood Rule

Friday, February 17, 2017 | Tag Cloud Tags: ,

(Worthy News) - Republicans passed legislation on Thursday reversing former President Barack Obama's lame-duck ban on states withholding taxpayer funds from Planned Parenthood.

The resolution will undermine a December order from the Obama administration that prevented states from blocking taxpayer funding of abortion clinics. Bill sponsor Rep. Diane Black (R., Tenn.) said on the House floor that state lawmakers should have the final say over how taxpayer dollars for medical care are distributed in their local communities.

"We are simply voting today to affirm the right of states to fund the healthcare providers that best suit their needs, without fear of reprisal from their own federal government," Black said in a floor speech before the vote. "As a state legislator, I worked within my authority to make sure that Tennessee honored the will of our pro-life populace and steered our state’s share of Title X dollars away from health care providers that perform abortion."

  1. Obliterate, discombobulate, incinerate, shred to nanoparticle size, particle beam laser blast, send it into the abyss, the Lake of Fire along with Hell and Death, totally wipe it off the ledger of history with no hint of vestiges remaining that it ever existed.
