According to Liberty Counsel, the pro-life rule cuts off federal funding to organizations that provide abortions in the same facilities as other services financed by taxpayer dollars.

The 9th Circuit ruled 7-4 on July 11 to lift injunctions.

Pro-choice groups argue abortion is family planning but attorney Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel says abortion is family ending. 

"President Reagan originally stopped all federal Title X funds from going to abortion but President Obama opened up the spigot to allow taxpayer dollars to fund abortion," says Staver.

President Trump, he continues, "put a stop to it" and has now gotten a legal victory at the 9th Circuit. 

Staver says that is a story in and of itself. 

"This is the court," he tells OneNewsNow, "that historically has been reversed more than any other court in the country, but it is changing because of the new judges that are being nominated and confirmed under President Donald Trump."

The rule can go into effect immediately.

Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) continues to get away with anti-Semitic statements, recently comparing the flagrantly pro-Palestinian Boycott Divestment Sanction (BDS) movement to the Boston Tea Party – which some believe is grounds to remove the anti-American House member from office – and her resolution also likens Israel to Nazi Germany.
