Planned Parenthood Chooses Abortion Over Federal Funding

Planned Parenthood announced Monday that they will no longer receive Title X funds. 


The Trump administration recently put new guidelines in place for organizations that receive Title X, a federal grant program that provides preventive health and family planning services. The first change took effect Monday, August 19. Participating providers were required to submit a plan explaining how their organizations intend to comply with the new rule that they are unable to refer abortion services to women. By September 18, they will need to certify that they are indeed following through with their plan, and it is then being implemented.

Refuses to comply with what they consider a "gag rule." 

The organization believes that it is important to give their patients all of their options. In their eyes, this includes where and how to receive an abortion.


Pro-Life Victory

Many people have stated their desire to defund Planned Parenthood.

In 2016, President Trump stated "I would defund it because of the abortion factor, which they say is 3 percent. I don't know what percent it is. They say that it's 3 percent. But I would defund it, because I'm pro-life."

"The Title X program was not intended to be a slush fund for abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood," Majorie Dannenfelser, the president of the Susan B. Anthony List, a national anti-abortion group, said.

"If Planned Parenthood wants to be involved in providing counseling services and HIV testing, they ought not be in the business of providing abortions," stated Mike Pence.

What Happens Next...

"While Planned Parenthood health centers make up just 13 percent of Title X centers, they serve 41% of the 4 million patients who get care through the program," Planned Parenthood's website explains. 

Now that the organization decided to remove themselves from the program, will more pro-life providers step in the fill the gap in coverage? Which providers will benefit from the millions of dollars that are now available through the federal grant program?

Baby Born at 24 Weeks Surprises Everyone

Penny Sized Feet Victoria Bradley, the mom of this beautiful baby girl named  Francesca , said that when her daughter was born she  “still looked like a  fetus . Her skin was see-through, and she didn't have eyelashes or eyebrows. Her eyes weren't open yet."  Francesca's "hand the size of a fingernail, her feet the size of pennies." The tiny human weighed less than two pounds. Born Just 2 days After Abortion Limit “I didn’t think she would be here. It’s scary to think if she had been just two days earlier, [doctors] wouldn’t have worked to save her,” Victoria Bradley told the press. Why were the two days so important? In the United Kingdom (where Victoria was born) they have determined viability with a 24-week cutoff mark. Thankfully, the baby girl skimmed past the cutoff, so the medical staff would help her. Against all Odds The baby's now thriving! "She's fought off memeningitis, collapsed lungs, and kindney problems, had 15 b

Baby's Brain Stolen While He Still Had A Beating Heart

What happens to aborted babies? What if their heart is still beating after the procedure? This scenario happens more than the abortion industry would like to admit. Holly O'Donnell was a  procurement technician at StemExpress. One day something abhorrent happened that she will never forget. Her co-worker called out for her saying "I want you to see something kind of cool. This is kind of neat."  When she went over to see what her co-worker Jessica was referring to, Holly recalls being "just flabbergasted" adding "this is the closest thing to a baby that I've seen."  The Baby's Heart Started Beating Most people would think that that is impossible, but it's simply not. Dr. Ben Van Handel, the executive director of Novogenix Laboratories stated "there are times when after the procedure is done that the heart is still beating. "It had a face."  She went on to describe the aborted tiny human saying that "it

Pro-Life Democrats Have No Candidate to Support

Millions of Voters Conflicted A ccording to a recent study, 17% of Democrats believe abortion should be illegal.  In fact, CBS news reported that there are  "roughly 21 million democratic voters who oppose legal abortion." Politically Homeless "I can't vote for any candidate who is going to violate fundimental basic human rights," expressed Democratic voter. "We're almost politically homeless," says Kristen Day, the executive director of The Democrats for Life of America. "When you look at the platform, that doesn't leave any room for people like me." What will happen next?  Left without representation, these pro-life Democrats have three options...  The first is to vote for a non-front running democratic candidate with more moderate views on abortion. The second is to consider supporting a Republican that has similar ideals. Sadly, the last option is to skip voting (which I would never recommend).   These mill
