President Donald Trump signed a law on Wednesday, overturning former president Barack Obama’s regulation to force states to fund Planned Parenthood and other family planning services.

On March 13th, Vice President Mike Pence became the deciding factor, voting against Obama’s ‘parting gift to the abortion industry’.

On April 13th, President Trump officially withdrew the regulation, leaving many Christians and pro-life groups very pleased.

Marjorie Jones Dannenfelser, President of the pro-life organization ‘Susan B. Anthony List, stated:

"This week the pro-life movement had two huge victories: first, the swearing-in of Justice Gorsuch and now, President Trump will undo former President Obama’s parting gift to the abortion industry."

"The resolution signed today simply ensures that states are not forced to fund an abortion business with taxpayer dollars. Rather, states have the option to spend Title X money on comprehensive health care clinics that better serve women and girls."
