President Donald Trump’s administration is cutting off abortion group Planned Parenthood from accessing Paycheck Protection Program stimulus funds, new reporting from the Daily Signal has revealed.
“President Trump is committed to ensuring Paycheck Protection Program money is used for saving jobs at small businesses, not getting the government into the business of funding abortion,” said an unnamed government official of the prospect of Planned Parenthood accessing stimulus funds. “While not all Americans share President Trump’s pro-life beliefs, there is broad bipartisan support for the idea that American taxpayers should not have to fund abortion.”
The official explained that the federal government is recognizing Planned Parenthood as a sole business with almost 16,000 employees nationwide. The abortion group legally structures itself in local affiliates that could potentially apply for stimulus money on the basis of being small businesses, but applications for the program will recognize them as an element of the national entity.
The Small Business Administration has license to recognize local affiliate organizations of bigger businesses as being segments of their parent companies when determining eligibility for small business relief funding.
Planned Parenthood had earlier warned that the way the CARES Act stimulus was being structured would prevent the abortionist group from receiving taxpayer dollars.
“The bill gives the Small Business Administration broad discretion to exclude Planned Parenthood affiliates and other non-profits serving people with low incomes and deny them benefits under the new small business loan program,” claimed the group in a March statement.
Several states have ordered the cessation of abortion operations as non-essential practices during their coronavirus states of emergency. However, the halts to abortion procedures have proved temporary in nature, with Ohio’s being shut down through a court judgement and Texas’ being revoked by the state on April 22nd.
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.
