Trump Signs Bill Enabling States to Defund PPFA

Tom Strode • Baptist Press – President Trump signed legislation on April 13 that once again enables states to withhold federal family planning funds from Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers. Trump’s action overturned a rule issued by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in December, only five weeks before President Obama left office. Many pro-life advocates perceived the HHS regulation, which effectively barred states from prohibiting Title X funds for abortion clinics, as a parting gift from Obama to the abortion industry.
