Today’s the day. The Trump administration has officially sent some of Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding to legitimate health care groups that provide tangible health care instead of abortions. This action adds to President Trump’s record of defunding the Planned Parenthood abortion company.
Planned Parenthood refuses to follow a new Trump administration rule that requires it to segment out its abortion business from legitimate health care if it wants federal funding under the Title X program. Because the abortion giant is withdrawing from Title X, the $60 million in taxpayer dollars it received annually can be redistributed to groups that engage in legitimate women’s health care.
Today, HHS announced $33.6 million in funds for fiscal year 2019 to Title X grantees from the funds made available when Planned Parenthood left the program.
