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.

Nick Sandmann Makes Triumphant Return to March For Life A Year After Covington Hate Hoax

Sandmann emerged victorious from the dastardly, shameful libel attempt.

Published

on

Covington Catholic student Nick Sandman returned to Washington D.C’s March for Life on Friday, one year after he was made the target of a vicious libel campaign that attempted to slander the Kentucky teenager as racist for his encounter with a raucous Native American protestor.

The Kentucky high schooler, who was 17 at the time, was accosted by Nathan Philips at the 2019 March for Life, kicking off a national controversy. CNN, Ben Shapiro, and the New York Times attempted to mercilessly smear Sandmann for the interaction, claiming he had somehow dealt with Philips in a racist manner.

After the incident was further exposed, it became obvious that Sandmann had simply stood by respectfully as Philips approached a group of Covington Catholic students and started banging on a drum.

Sandmann tweeted images of his return to the event on his personal Twitter page.

It’s heartening to see that Sandmann hasn’t backed down from his pro-life convictions in light of the national hate campaign waged against him by the mainstream media. He mentioned on his Twitter page that he underwent an interview with NBC at the very area of the National Mall where he was accosted by Philips.

Sandmann has taken his defamers to court and won. Fake news network CNN was recently forced to pay an undisclosed sum in a settlement to Sandmann, a small price to pay for their defamation of the pro-life teen.

The debunking of the Covington Catholic hate hoax was one of the first major media hate campaigns to be effectively discredited, making it clear that the days in which fake news smear artists could ruthlessly smear patriotic Americans without fear of consequences are over.

President Donald Trump attended this year’s March for Life, speaking of his pro-life principles and pledging to continue the fight against abortion as President.
