President Trump has just submitted a budget proposal that will seek, among other things, to cut Planned Parenthood off from gravy train of taxpayer money.
On Monday, the White House submitted its $4.89 trillion budget proposal, titled “A Budget For America’s Future,” for the Fiscal Year 2021 to Congress on Monday.
As it is currently written, the budget contains several massive spending cuts, including defunding abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood, the State Department, Department of Education, Environmental Protection Agency, and more.
The budget would also increase military spending and grow the budgets for the Departments of Homeland Security and Veterans Affairs, as well as NASA.
The budget projects a $4.6 trillion reduction in the nation’s $23 trillion national debt but rolls back the timetable for eliminating the deficit from eight years to fifteen.
According to the budget’s fact sheet on “Protecting Our Nation’s Health and Wellness,” it would eliminate the hundreds of millions in taxpayer funding Planned Parenthood has received each year since 2016 via the US Departments of Labor and Health And Human Services (HHS), along with funding for the pro-abortion United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). It would also strengthen federal conscience protections by adopting the Conscience Protection Act.
“The Budget prioritizes the value of human life by ensuring that Federal funding does not support abortions,” the budget explains. “The Budget proposes to prohibit Federal funding, such as in the Title X Family Planning and Medicaid programs, for certain entities that provide abortion services.”
“The Budget also protects conscience rights, prohibits coercion in healthcare, and allows private parties to enforce such rights in Federal court,” the budget continues.” With these protections, the Administration will continue to ensure robust protection of conscience rights and religious liberty.”
By all means, we should cut off Planned Parenthood—no American should be compelled to financially support abortion providers with their tax dollars.
Still, our stance is and has always been abortion is murder, and we cannot simply regulate murder.
We must continue to call for a complete and total end to abortion, not just cuts and reductions here and there. America’s children are depending on us.
