The pro-life bill would eliminate more than $390 million (over 86%) of over $450 million in annual federal funding to Planned Parenthood, from all mandatory spending programs. The measure also redirects funding to community health centers which outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities 20 to 1 and offer a wider array of health care services, but not abortion. AHCA also repeals Obamacare abortion subsidies, adds reforms to give states more flexibility and lower costs, and provides families more options.
Women who needs health services can visit plenty of other clinics, which will not take life.
There is no need for federal taxpayers to continue funding the Planned Murderhood abortion mill.
The bill would close the largest pipeline for federal funding of Planned Parenthood, Medicaid, and it applies as well to the CHIP and the Title V and Title XX block grant programs.
It would be nice to see the federal government close off Medicaid entirely.
Or at least turn the federal funding into clear-cut bloc grants, which in turn would lead to less waste and more liberty within the several states.
After years of fighting to end the funding, Republicans are finally following through on these promises.
It's time to get the government out of the abortion business altogether.
