Obama the bully (at American Univ.)President Barack Obama is making a controversial move to pour more tax dollars into Planned Parenthood.

Title X funds, which cover family planning, are managed by the federal Health and Human Services and distributed to the states, including states where legislators have voted to stop the flow of funds to Planned Parenthood.

Those new laws stipulate no more funding for organizations that perform abortions, explains Jim Sedlak of American Life League.

"And therefore Planned Parenthood does not get money in some of the states," the pro-life activist further explains.

Responding to the pushback against his political ally, Obama has instructed HHS to stipulate that the "recipients," meaning the states, can't use any methods to select  the"subrecipients," meaning Planned Parenthood abortuaries and other health clinics. 

The proposed rule can be read here.

Sedlak says that rule takes away any flexibility the states have and also ensures that Planned Parenthood gets the funds.

Reacting to the proposed rule, Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn) has called that a "shady" rule change and an "unprecedented step" that thwarts states' rights.

The nation's top abortion business has reported profit of over $120 millon and receives over a half-billion in federal tax dollars.

Meanwhile, pro-life groups argue tht local, tax-supported health facilities can more effectively deliver medical services than Planned Parenthood.
