Showdown with abortion giant coming soon …

Defund Planned ParenthoodA pro-life activist insists that needy women should not be overly concerned if the United States Congress eliminates funds for Planned Parenthood because even more services will become available and closer to home if taxpayer funds no longer go to the abortion giant.

On January 18, the Obama administration will implement a rule that bars states from defunding the biggest abortion provider in the America – and the world – but a former member of Congress believes that the provision will be short lived.

Marilyn Musgrave of the Susan B. Anthony List told OneNewsNow that President-elect Donald Trump could issue an executive order when he takes office -- but Congress plans to take action, as well.

“Leaders in the House and the Senate have indicated that this is going to be dealt with early in the year, and we're going to see a reconciliation bill that will defund Planned Parenthood – and we're praying that it passes and it's on the desk of then President Trump who will sign it into law,” Musgrave shared.

The Obama administration and its Planned Parenthood allies have used a scare tactic that poverty-stricken women will be deprived health care services if the measure goes through.

“But the fact of the matter is there are federally qualified community health care centers that provide whole women's health care,” Musgrave pointed out. “If a woman has high blood pressure or any other kind of health problem, these facilities would address her whole health.”

Planned Parenthood services are limited, and Musgrave stressed the fact that federally qualified local centers outnumber Planned Parenthood clinics 20 to 1 – making an expanded list of true health services more available to needy women and men.
