Rand Paul Proposes Budget Amendment to Defund Planned Parenthood

Published

on

A Republican Senator from Kentucky introduced a budget amendment Friday that would strip federal funding form the abortionists at Planned Parenthood.

“The amendment, attached to the Senate appropriations package to fund the Departments of Defense, Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, forbids any funds going through those departments from directly or indirectly going to any entity that performs or finances most abortions,” according to Life Site News.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is breaking from the GOP establishment whom, with control of the House, Senate and Presidency, have not acted on the pro-life values that Republicans love to tout on the campaign trail.

Weak Republicans, led by the weakest of them all, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have taken advantage of the pro-life platform, but have failed to deliver. Even under President Barack H. Obama the Republicans controlled both chambers of Congress. They could have made a power play to defund the abortionists, forcing Obama to comply or shut down the federal government. It was a win/win situation politically, and the GOP establishment still figured out a way to lose.

“One of the top priorities for a Republican Congress that professes pro-life values on the campaign trail should be to stop taxpayer funding for abortion providers,” Paul said. “This is our chance to turn our words into action, stand up for the sanctity of life, and speak out for the most innocent among us that have no voice.”

Paul noted that any women’s health clinic that does not provide abortions will have continued access to federal funding, and that the bill makes exceptions for rare cases of rape and incest.

Planned Parenthood received $543 million in taxpayer funds during fiscal year 2016-2017, even after President Donald J. Trump campaigned on defunding the organization.

Unless Congressional Republicans suddenly grow a spine, the amendment is unlikely to be signed into law, though Paul emphasizing the issue is a welcome sign.

President Donald Trump played a video at a Pennsylvania ‘MAGA’ rally on Monday that thoroughly documented Joe Biden’s lengthy, enduring support of globalist free trade and pro-China policies.

In the video, Joe Biden can be heard defending a soft-on-China trade and economic approach, a policy he has promoted over his decades of work in public office.

We want to see China rise.

We talk about China as out competitor… We should be helping.

China is going to eat our lunch? C’mon man! They’re not bad folks, folks.”

The video also breaks down Joe Biden’s false claim that he never advocating for banning fracking, revealing clips in which he responds affirmatively to ending “fossil fuels and fracking” and reemphasizing he’d allow “no new fracking” as President of the United States.

The outsourcing of jobs to cheap-labor countries such as China has devastated many communities in states such as Pennsylvania, which formerly were home to the United States’ manufacturing sector.

Biden has pitched himself as a blue-collar working class guy on the campaign trail, but he hasn’t “worked with his hands”(a phrase he frequently uses) since he went to law school in his early 20’s. President Trump has worked in the world of construction for decades, employing countless contractors, tradesmen and skilled professionals.
