A Trump Policy Just Knocked $30 Million Right Out of Planned Parenthood’s Hand

Planned Parenthood takes half a billion in taxpayer cash annually, but at least they’ve recently taken a multi-million dollar hit that they’ll really feel.

According to LifeNews, Planned Parenthood failed to comply with a Trump initiated policy that blocks foreign groups from promoting or performing abortions overseas:

(C-Fam) A State Department report released yesterday found wide acceptance of the expanded Mexico City Policy which blocks funding for foreign groups performing or promoting abortion overseas. The report surveyed organizations which receive U.S. funds to deliver health care to vulnerable populations overseas.

The expanded policy, called “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance (PLGHA),” was instituted by President Donald Trump in January 2017 and extends the policy to the $8.8 billion in funds appropriated for global health assistance through Department of State, U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Department of Defense (DoD).

And guess who falls into the non-compliant category.

“Two of the non-compliance organizations are global abortion providers, Marie Stopes International and the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF),” reported LifeNews. “Both organizations have bilateral USAID grants that would have gone through 2019 for approximately $30 million.”

In short, Planned Parenthood thought they would continue ignoring the rules and getting away with it, but found out they weren’t as above the law as they thought.

Planned Parenthood has taken a series of blows lately, not least of which is the undercover videos exposing their operation of selling baby parts by the Center for Medical Progress. Furthermore, America is increasingly becoming pro-life, with abortion losing steam with every scientific study.

Recently, sensing it was sinking, the face of Planned Parenthood and CEO Cecile Richards is also abandoning the Planned Parenthood ship as the numbers continue to mount against the abortion providers favor.

Now if only we can defund Planned Parenthood completely.
