President Donald Trump continues to prove his commitment to standing up for life.
After being the first President in history to speak at the March for Life, he is more committed than ever.
And he just smacked Planned Parenthood with news that could shut them down for good.
While the fact that abortions occur is sickening enough to Christians in America, the fact that providers like Planned Parenthood receive federal funding is even more disgraceful.
And finally there is a President who agrees with it, and is willing to actually put in the legwork to fix the problem.
In his newly revealed budget $4.89 trillion budget plan proposal, President Trump fully defunds Planned Parenthood.
The plan includes many different cuts, including to the U.S. State Department, Department of Education, and others, while providing increased funding for the military, the Department of Homeland Security and Veterans Affairs, and NASA.
But what pro-life Americans are excited about is the elimination of taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood, which they receive through the U.S. Departments of Labor and Health and Human Services.
The budget also cuts funding to the pro-abortion United Nations Population Fund, along with strengthening federal conscience protections by adopting the Conscience Protection Act.
In the budget, human life is prioritized, which is made clear.
“The Budget prioritizes the value of human life by ensuring that Federal funding does not support abortions,” the plan explains. “The Budget proposes to prohibit Federal funding, such as in the Title X Family Planning and Medicaid programs, for certain entities that provide abortion services. The Budget also protects conscience rights, prohibits coercion in healthcare, and allows private parties to enforce such rights in Federal court. With these protections, the Administration will continue to ensure robust protection of conscience rights and religious liberty.”
Of course, this is just the proposal from President Trump, and it still needs approval in the House and Senate.
With Democrats currently controlling the House, it is going to be an uphill battle to keep these provisions in the budget that is ultimately passed.
Democrats have gone overboard with their pro-abortion agenda, with many top figures in the Party supporting late-term abortion, even up until the point of birth.
But President Trump is sure to put up a major fight, and if he is able to take back the House in November, he will have a much better chance at winning this fight, at least after a new Congress is sworn in, which will have to wait until early 2021.
