House passes compromise $1.3 trillion budget bill
The U.S. House has easily approved a bipartisan $1.3 trillion measure handing huge spending increases to defense programs and domestic initiatives ranging from road-building to biomedical research.
President Barack Obama was severely chided by Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) for preventing states from defunding Planned Parenthood.
Black is calling out the Obama administration following its issuance of a final rule on Wednesday – a move that ultimately stops any state from blocking taxpayer dollars from going to the abortion giant.
Stopping a legacy of abortion activism
Obama – who the Christian pro-family leader Dr. James Dobson coined as “the abortion president” because of his seemingly unconditional support for the federally funded abortion giant – is attempting to forward his pro-abortion agenda in the final weeks of his presidency by telling states that cannot keep taxpayer money from going to Planned Parenthood.
As a major leader in the battle to save innocent preborn babies from being killed at the hands of Planned Parenthood’s abortionists, Black insists that the fight to put an end to taxpayer-funded abortions is far from over.
Black, who is also a registered nurse, is leading the fight to stop Obama from enforcing his extremist pro-abortion legacy during his final weeks in office before President-elect Donald Trump takes over.
"We should not be surprised that his administration would lash out with this eleventh-hour power grab on the way out the door, but I am certain this rule will not stand for long," the pro-life congresswoman from the Volunteer State asserted, according to CBN News.
A different playing field
Registering major gains in the presidential election last month, Republicans now enjoy a pro-life majority in Congress, says Black, who maintains that her legislative body is more than prepared to take on the Obama administration head-on as it continues to defend Planned Parenthood’s continued drain on taxpayers of more than half a billion dollars annually.
She insists that Trump – who has vowed to protect the preborn and defund Planned Parenthood once he and his running mate, pro-life veteran, Mike Pence, take office next month – will work toward the abortion provider’s defunding.
"Come next year, our pro-life majorities in Congress will be positioned to work with President-Elect Trump and pro-life nominee for Secretary of Health and Human Services, Dr. Tom Price, to not only roll back this latest overreach, but also to enact new legal protections for these most vulnerable members of our society," Black insisted.
After sinking $30 million into its biggest advocate -- Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. who suffered a devastating loss this year – not to mention the viral selling of aborted baby body parts scandal taking place over the past year, Planned Parenthood is bracing for some rocky years ahead.
Black is confident that defunding the world’s largest abortion provider will indeed work to curb the 320,000 abortions it performs on a yearly basis – procedures that help to fund Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards’ $1 million annual salary.
Enough is enough
With the majority of her colleagues to work with in Congress against Obama’s last stand for Planned Parenthood’s ongoing federal funding, Black is not worried about the president’s last-ditch effort to help out the abortion industry
"The Obama administration will not have the last word," Black concluded. "Hope is rising for the innocent victims of Planned Parenthood's brutality and the big abortion industry's days of taxpayer-funded windfalls are numbered."
