Oh boy, Democrats are hating a total loss of control of the United States government.
Yes, they lost the White House, but now they do not control the House, the Senate, or a majority of governorships or state houses. They are officially down and out.
And that means their pet projects are being annihilated one by one, and Obama cannot veto any of them. He can only watch as his legacy, and the legacy of Bill Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and other reigning Democrats crumble.
And at the top of the list is the wholesale murder of our unborn children.
From the moment Roe v. Wade passed the Supreme Court in 1973, pro-life advocates have tirelessly been working to undo this horrendous decision.
Since the ruling, over 54 million babies have been aborted in America for the crime of being inconvenient, and the number continues to grow each year.
Many states have long rejected the notion that their tax dollars must be used to fund a practice they find morally abhorrent, and they have sought to reassert their right to break with the federal government on this issue.
A bill was recently proposed in the Senate that seeks to do just that. Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA) nearly didn’t make the vote, arriving in a wheelchair following a back surgery in order to give the Republicans all the help they could get.
With two Republican Senators siding with Democrats, Isakson’s vote brought the tally to 50-50. Vice President Mike Pence, a proud pro-life advocate, broke the tie to pass the bill, allowing states the right to withdraw funding from Planned Parenthood.
From The Daily Wire:
Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, celebrated, “Today, Congress is sending a resolution to President Trump ensuring that states are not forced to fund America’s abortion giant, Planned Parenthood, with Title X tax dollars.” Senator Joni Ernst added, “It should be the right of our states to allocate sub-grants under the Title X program in the way that best fits the needs of the people living there. Unfortunately, like many other rules issued during the Obama administration, this rule attempted to empower federal bureaucrats in Washington and silence our states.”
The states will now be permitted to exclude healthcare centers that perform abortions from receiving Title X money.
While pro-life advocates are rightfully celebrating, there is still much work to be done to end Planned Parenthood and abortion in the United States.
Many Republicans initially distrusted Trump’s loyalty the pro-life movement, but by picking Mike Pence as his running mate, he has given pro-lifers an amazing advantage, as Pence just demonstrated by breaking the Senate’s tie.
As the measure makes its way to President Trump for his signature, its important to keep up this momentum. The president will likely continue working with Republicans on new legislation to completely strip Planned Parenthood of all federal funds.
Once Planned Parenthood is brought to its knees, the lives of countless children can finally be saved.
