Defund Planned ParenthoodThe U.S. House of Representatives is seeking another opportunity to provide better and more available medical care for the nation's economically depressed women.

President Trump wants to strip the abortion chain Planned Parenthood and other elective abortion providers of any federal tax money for reproductive services, and he has a firm ally in the House.

"Congresswoman Vicki Hartzler's (R-MO) legislation, the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2019, would strip taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood and other elective abortion providers in America and take taxpayer funds out of the pockets of organizations that destroy human life," reports Steven H. Aden, chief legal officer and general counsel for Americans United for Life.

Aden, Steven (AUL)Planned Parenthood maintains that abortion is only three percent of its business, but fact checks prove that not to be true. Actually, the abortion company only delivers a limited amount of non-abortion medical services to the poor.

"The fact is that Planned Parenthood only provides roughly two percent of non-abortion medical treatment to women in America," Aden points out. "It is a very small minority of all the true medical care that's provided to women in America."

If the measure is approved, those funds would be reallocated to the many thousands of local medical clinics that do not provide abortions but offer a broader range of true health services. Pro-life members of the House are lining up to support the measure and join in the battle ahead for its approval.
