President Donald Trump will be able to cut between $50 million to $60 million in Title X funds slated for Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers following an appeals court ruling in his administration’s favor on Thursday.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found that the Trump administration’s request to remove national injunctions imposed over the entire state of California and by lower federal courts in Oregon and Washington state was lawful, and they will now be cleared to impose their new proposed rules.
“Absent a stay, HHS will be forced to allow taxpayer dollars to be spent in a manner that it has concluded violates the law, as well as the Government’s important policy interest in ensuring that taxpayer dollars do not go to fund or subsidize abortions,” wrote the judges, who were all appointed by Republican former presidents, in a 3-0 opinion.
Based on the SCOTUS ruling Rust v. Sullivan (1991), the Trump administration expects to be able to change the regulations without any problem.
Trump’s “Protect Life Rule” will deny federal funds under Title X to family planning organizations that also provide abortions. Abortion providers will have to completely separate their family planning services financially in order to keep receiving federal funds under the new regulations.
“The Protect Life Rule does not cut family planning funding by a single dime, and instead directs tax dollars to entities that provide healthcare to women but do not perform abortions,” SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said to LifeNews.
“We thank President Trump and Health & Human Services Secretary Azar for their numerous actions to restore pro-life policies,” National Right to Life president Carol Tobias said to LifeNews. “We are encouraged to see the announcement of Title X regulations that are back in line with previous policy that prevents federal dollars from being used to directly or indirectly promote abortion domestically.”
Title X funds were meant to assist low-income Americans get access to cancer screenings, contraceptives, and other essential healthcare services. It has since expanded to give subsidies to abortion providers after the Clinton administration relaxed Reagan-era regulations that prevented abortion referrals except when it may endanger the life of the mother. Because of Trump, that is no more.

On the issue of protecting life, President Trump is living up to his promise.
Powerful Homily: Catholic Priest Rebukes Members of the Church Who Ignored Religious Freedom, Voted for Joe Biden
This priest isn’t cowing before the pro-abortion Left.
Father Jeffrey Kirby of the Diocese of Charleston delivered a powerful homily rebuking members of the Church who voted for Joe Biden last week.
Father Kirby began his homily telling the account of St. Thomas Becket, a 12th century English bishop who was murdered in his cathedral for upholding the rights of the Church in defiance of governmental mandates. Kirby compared Becket’s opponents to Catholics who supported Biden, who is likely to continue in the vein of governmental impositions and infringements on religious liberty seen from President Obama’s administration.
Watch Father Kirby’s full homily here.
“Some of you, I know, voted for someone who is now going to suffer and persecute the Church for the next four years…
That on top of the fact that he supports the slaughter of the unborn!
What have you done! What have you done to your Church! Look, and watch, as our religious sisters are dragged through the courts! As contraception is imposed upon them! Watch as our hospitals disappear. Because we will not follow government dictates.”
Biden, who styles himself as a Catholic despite support for unlimited abortion and homosexualism, benefited from the support of more religious Catholics and Evangelical Christians than previous Democrat candidates for President. Father Kirby made sure that those who thought allusions to “tone” and decorum were more important than fundamental Catholic moral teachings on life understood the errors of their ways.
“And those of you who voted for such an administration… bear responsibility, for what you have done. Because we are in for it, folks. And they are already getting ready for it.”
Some high-ranking bishops of the American Catholic Church even went so far as to appear to outright endorse Joe Biden, a development unprecedented for a presidential candidate promising full support for an unlimited abortion agenda.
“Never forget, that the spiritual mystics tell us, that the pavements of hell are paved with the skulls of bishops. I preach the truth. So those of you who are entrusted to my care- you know what we believe as Catholics. You know what the true religion calls for. And I want to make sure that I speak it-even if every one of you denies it.“
