Trump and Congress: Stop Taxpayer-Funding of Abortions

An average of 323,999 abortions  a year—900 a day!–are performed by the death mill Planned Parenthood, and taxpayers are paying for it!

It’s immoral to take taxpayer dollars to pay for abortion.

But there is great news.

After only three days in office, President Trump signed an executive order which re-instates President Reagan’s Mexico City Policy, banning taxpayer funding for abortions overseas.

Any corporations or organizations which perform abortions overseas will no longer receive American taxpayer funds.

The International Planned Parenthood Federation acknowledges that they will lose $100 for its programs. Marie Stopes International will lose $30 million, but these institutions have no intention of halting their “reproductive services.”

Not only that, but taxpayers are forced to give $533 million to U.S. Planned Parenthood every year

But all of that many come to end by late February or early March, when Congress will pass legislation to end mandated funding to Planned Parenthood. Let’s hope and pray that President Trump signs this legislation to defend taxpayer dollars in the United States.

And if that wasn’t enough …

Congress also just introduced HR 7, a permanent extension of the Hyde Amendment, which bans taxpayer funding for abortions in the United States. Until now, the ban had to be renewed every year in every budget session.

HR 7 will also ensure that Obamacare funding is not used to fund abortions, either.

Incidentally, Trump’s special counselor manager Kellyanne Conway and other top Trump staff members will be speaking at the 44th March For Life on Friday, with the theme “The Power of One.”

One life makes all the difference in our world, and we cannot allow one life to be taken away through abortion:

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” (Psalm 139:13)

And

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5)

  1. I am 100% in disagreement with Planned Parenthood no matter who funds it. I can’t imagine all the aborted babies and what they could have amounted to. We could have had great scientists, doctor’s, teachers, soldiers, statesmen, ministers, etc., etc. and for taxpayers mandated to pay for abortions is horrendous.

  2. Abortion needs to stop now !! We as the Church have a responsibility to elect people who will put a stop to it. It’s time for pastors all across America to start speaking about this, it’s time for us as Christians to be “Salt & Light”. This may be our last chance. America’s pulpits need to become aflame with righteousness
    .

    1. Dan Daniel, then we need to get rid of the Johnson Amendment, which our previous President, Lyndon Johnson, got passed in the 1950’s when he was in Congress, by hiding it in some other signed legislation. It prevents Pastors and others from talking politics from the pulpit, otherwise the churches lose Federal funding.

  3. we don’t need a pastor to tell us murder is murder, we know it from our bibles and so Gov. can’t take funding away for that. We aren’t ignorant even though a lot want to believe that. We don’t have to follow the crowd, we follow Christ which said” the taking of a life is murder”. It needs to end. I should have a say in whether my taxes go to abortions or not, and if the others want planned parenthood, then let them fund them as a special charity they can give to.

  6. The Johnson amendment may restrict pastors from promoting a specific candidate, but it does not restrict them from speaking out on any issue and the virtues or evils of said issues. Too many pastors hide behind the amendment for fear of offending one of their congregants. Shame on them, after all the gospel is an offense and a stumbling block to many.
    However, what a sign of the times, and sad that of all the tax exempt organizations only the “religious” organizations are restricted of free speech with the threat of the IRS. It’s past time to repeal this amendment.
