President Trump deals huge blow to US abortion clinics

US President Donald Trump on Thursday privately signed legislation that removes Obama-
era rules protecting tax-funded financing of family planning clinics that offer abortion.

The new law goes towards a long-held goal of defunding abortion held by Republicans, who passed the bill two weeks ago with a tie-breaking vote by
Vice President Mike Pence.

The law does away with a rule brought in by Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, that prevented states from withholding money distributed under a “Title X” program that funded Planned Parenthood and other clinics that provide abortion.

Trump, who has signed several laws with a flourish in front of cameras but did this one behind closed doors, had in the past appeared to approve of Planned Parenthood, but not its abortion services.

I hope this goes a long way to discourage abortion and protect women. God help us, Amen!
