Planned Parenthood reopens abortion clinic in Texas

And although the Trump administration had hinted the bill could include provisions to fund a southern border wall, crack down on sanctuary cities, and defund Planned Parenthood, Democrats' threats to force a government shutdown seem to have been enough to ensure that more controversial measures were left out.

It would simply be impossible for Republicans to claim the label of being "pro-life" if they voted to give hundreds of millions of dollars to the largest abortion provider in the world.

As the bill stands, the abortion giant will receive full funding and continue to do over a third of the abortions committed in America. "And what we're seeing is Congress is already considering reauthorizing a spending bill that will fund Planned Parenthood".

"This created unnecessary and risky obstacles for women seeking safe, legal abortion, causing women to have to drive hundreds of miles and to delay care", Planned Parenthood wrote in a statement. This legislation is clearly anti-women as it provides money to an organization that treats women as a commodity and does not provide complete women's health care.

"For years, Planned Parenthood supporters in Congress have touted services that are declining, virtually nonexistent, or were never even offered at the abortion group to justify it receiving half a billion dollars from taxpayers every year". But it is only as naïve as believing the public arguments of Planned Parenthood and its defenders in the funding debate.

The proposal would allow state officials to reduce or eliminate federal funding for the state's two Planned Parenthood Clinics that perform abortions. "President Trump and Republican members of Congress, please do the right thing and defund Planned Parenthood".
