ABORTION KILLS! ARE YOU FORCED INTO FUNDING IT? - Hill Republicans plan to kill Obama's order on taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood
DEFUNDING THE BABY KILLERS
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 barring state funds for the abortion giant, and Obama's 11th-hour executive order prohibited such policies. Next week, the House plans to use the Congressional Review Act to repeal that Obama regulation — a first salvo in their fight to roll back Obama's legacy on abortion. According to congressional aides, the vote is scheduled for late next week and will specifically axe Obama's Title X rule. During his final weeks in office, Obama finalized the regulation, explicitly barring states from pulling federal grant money from clinics that provide abortion. Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told The Washington Examiner that the effort is about protecting life and stopping the federal government from forcing states to support abortion.
