President Donald Trump followed through on yet another promise he had made throughout his campaigning last election season. On Thursday, President Trump signed a bill that will continue efforts towards defunding Planned Parenthood.
The bill ensures that states now have the authority to withhold Title X federal funding from various organizations that perform abortions in their respective states. This comes after President Obama had previously signed a bill, 2 days before leaving office, which restricted states from withholding Federal funding for those organizations.
President Trump's new bill is seen as a step in the right direction by many people and an important step in helping to save innocent unborn lives.
House Speaker, Paul Ryan, had the perfect words to express what stand our Government is taking. After this bill became the law, Ryan stated:
“Taxpayers should not be forced to fund abortion, plain and simple,” said Ryan. “We remain united and steadfast in our commitment to life and religious liberty.”
How wonderful is it that we have a government who will stand up for our religious beliefs and keep fighting for the unborn?
