Obama Admin Issues Final Rule Blocking State Efforts To Defund Planned Parenthood

Barack Obama’s Health and Human Services Department (HHS) issued a final rule Wednesday designed to thwart state efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.

The rule bans withholding federal funds from the abortion giant’s affiliates and other entities that perform abortion for any reason other than the ability to provide Title X “family planning” services, and is scheduled to take effect two days prior to President-elect Donald Trump’s January 20 inauguration.

The regulation is in direct response to the effort of more than a dozen states to defund Planned Parenthood, and was set up by HHS to entail a laborious process to undo . . .

“With this rule, we see an administration that has become unglued at the knowledge of the impending pro-life sea change in Washington, DC.,” Black said. “President Obama knows that hope is rising for the innocent victims of Planned Parenthood’s brutality and the big abortion industry’s days of taxpayer-funded windfalls are numbered. We should not be surprised that his administration would lash out with this eleventh hour power grab on the way out the door, but I am certain this rule will not stand for long.”

Black, who is a registered nurse and a member of the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives investigating Planned Parenthood's illegal fetal body parts trade, said in a statement the final rule would not be the end of the fight to defund Planned Parenthood.

She referenced incoming HHS secretary nominee Tom Price, who is pro-life, and said pro-life majorities in Congress would be positioned to work with Trump and Price to roll back “this latest overreach." . . . .Read More
