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.

North Carolina Pro-Lifers Sue City After Being Arrested for Prayer Outside of Abortion Clinic

There were only four of them.

A group of North Carolina pro-life activists are suing the city of Greensboro, North Carolina for arresting them as they prayed outside an abortion center in the city. The activists, who belonged to the group Love Life, were arrested in accordance with the city’s coronavirus and social distancing guidelines for the Chinese coronavirus.

The activists were arrested last week for violating ‘stay at home’ orders. Merely four of them- no great crowd in which coronavirus would be likely present- were praying outside an abortion center called A Woman’s choice. The Greensboro Police tried repeatedly to get the activists to leave the scene voluntarily before taking them into custody. A police press release on the incident describes four men being charged with violating Greensboro’s Stay at Home ordinance and obstructing a peace officer.

Seven pro-life activists who arrived to protest the abortion center the following Monday were arrested by the Greensboro Police as well, demonstrating a willingness to continually arrest those who engage in the protest of the facility.

A lawsuit regarding the matter has been filed by the Thomas More Society, accusing the Greensboro Police Department of violating the pro-life demonstrators’ First Amendment rights. Another pro-life activist in Michigan is also filing a lawsuit against Michigan’s Democratic governor for his arrest while safely protesting an abortion center in Detroit alone.

If municipalities such as Greenboro want to enforce social distancing and stay at home rules, they need to realize that wide-ranging exceptions need to be made for people to participate in certain religious and political ceremonies. There is no excuse for arresting people for gathering outside in a crowd of four, especially when it’s to express their most valued moral and spiritual principles.
