Former Vice President Joe Biden would reverse a Trump administration rule, upheld Wednesday by the Supreme Court, exempting religious organizations from an Obamacare requirement that they pay for health plans that cover abortion. Breitbart explains this well: When Obamacare was passed, President Barack Obama promised religious groups that he would not use it to subsidize abortions, and signed an executive order to that effect. But
Bernie timed this tweet to occur at the very moment President Trump began his address to the annual March for Life in Washington. Trump is the first president to ever address the anti-abortion rally, which surprised me. Where were the Bushes and Reagan? Not to mention “safe, legal, and rare” Bill Clinton.
President Trump Friday will become the first president ever to speak at the annual anti-abortion march in Washington, according to the Washington Examiner. The March for Life has been staged since 1974 in Washington on or around the anniversary or Roe V. Wade, which legalized abortion in the United States in 1973. “From the appointment of pro-life judges and federal workers, to cutting taxpayer funding
The Trump administration sent a notice Wednesday to the University of Vermont Medical Center after a federal investigation concluded the hospital forced a Catholic nurse to assist in an abortion despite her objections to the procedure. The hospital has 30 days to show it won’t force healthcare workers to violate their beliefs. If it does not, the complaint will go to another agency, the Health
Major injury inflicted to the largest abortion provider in the nation, one that is funded by taxpayers. According to the Washington Examiner: Planned Parenthood will be foregoingas much as $60 million annually from a federal family planning program that will carry new anti-abortion rules. “Planned Parenthood is still open. We are continuing to fight this rule in court,” said Alexis McGill Johnson, acting president of
Many on the right questioned during the campaign whether Donald Trump would govern as an actual populist conservative. The influence of Jared and Ivanka appears to have been minimal. Whatever he once was during years past as a businessman in New York City, he seems to be a genuine conservative at this point, and certainly a more conservative president than either of the Bushes. According
I guess fourth-trimester abortions are just not very controversial for them. Of course, the problem for liberals is that what is effectively baby-killing undermines the whole pro-abortion argument, because this is the kind of thing allowing early-term abortions leads to.
President Trump is likely to resurrect regulations drawn up by the Reagan administration that would lead to a reduction in funding for Planned Parenthood even without a congressional cutoff. The move, according to The Hill, could help generate enthusiasm among conservatives whom Republicans are desperate to turn out for the 20189 midterms. The Hill reports: The regulations would ban organizations that receive family planning dollars
I thought you said Trump wasn’t a conservative. Okay, maybe not you. From the Guardian: Donald Trump has appointed the former president of a leading anti-abortion group to the top communications role at the Department of Health and Human Services. Charmaine Yoest, who for several years was head of Americans United for Life, will be HHS assistant secretary for public affairs. AUL played an instrumental
Why taxpayer funding goes to an organization that performs abortions, a practice that is so objectionable to so many people, is not something I understand. From the Washington Examiner: The House passed a resolution Thursday re-opening the door for states to block Planned Parenthood from receiving some federal funds. The measure, which passed 230-188, would reverse a last-minute rule from the Obama administration that said
The government was forced by the courts to allow abortion. But that doesn’t mean the government should be forcing you to pay for it. From the Washington Examiner: House Republicans will vote next week to liberate states from an Obama rule requiring them to subsidize Planned Parenthood. In one of his last actions, Obama effectively forced states to fund Planned Parenthood. Many states have policies
