Did Trump Actually Eliminate Federal Funding for Planned Parenthood with New Title X Rule?

Another Broken Promise

While President Donald Trump was praised by many pro-life advocates after his Protect Life Rule in Title X earlier this year.  However, did it completely defund Planned Parenthood concerning government funds?  No, it did not.  In fact, while it did in an overt fashion cause Planned Parenthood to back out of receiving around $60 million due to their referrals for abortions, the reality is that they continue to receive hundreds of millions, none of which can be traced to what Planned Parenthood actually funds.

The Sons of Liberty founder Bradlee Dean wrote about Trump’s promises to defund the organization on Wednesday in contrast to the president’s signing of a totally unconstitutional federal animal cruelty bill.

He wrote:

Now, I know what the president has said when it comes to his pro-life stance, but have you paid attention to what it is he is actually doing? Remember, we are not to judge according to what men say but what they do.

“Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits, ye shall know them.” -Matthew 7:16-20 

President Trump vowed in a video message to the March for Life on Friday to veto any legislation that “weakens the protection of human life.”

“If they send any legislation to my desk that weakens the protection of human life, I will issue a veto and we have the support to uphold those vetoes,” Trump said in the message displayed to a crowd gathered for the annual anti-abortion march in Washington.

“Every child is a sacred gift from God,” Trump said in the message.

Vice President Pence spoke in person at the march, calling Trump a “champion” for abortion opponents.

“President Donald Trump is the most pro-life president in American history,” Pence told the crowd.

This all being said in hopes that no one is actually paying attention to what he just did concerning abortion. Do you remember this?

CNSNews.com reported – Despite promising to defund Planned Parenthood, President Donald Trump signed a budget Friday, which was passed by the Republican-led Congress, that fully funds the nation’s largest abortion provider until the end of fiscal year 2019.

In a letter to pro-lifers during the election, Trump and Vice President Mike Pence said “I am committed to… Defunding Planned Parenthood as long as they continue to perform abortions, and reallocating their funding to community health centers that provide comprehensive health care for women.

While the budget provides more funding for community health centers, it also fully funds Planned Parenthood.

In fact, Trump has signed multiple continuing resolutions (CRs) that fully funded Planned Parenthood despite his campaign promise to defund it.

The bill was passed in the wee hours of the night (Same thing with the Patriot Act after September 11th, 2001) and complaining they had just seven hours to read the 2,232-page bill, the “length of two Bibles,” Rep. Rod Blum (R-IA), a bill said Senator Rand Paul  “which almost no one read.”

One would have thought that having no time to read the bill would be a good enough reason as to why the bill would not have been passed, not a reason to pass it!

Now, while the media did cover that fact that Planned Parenthood lost about $60 million in funding due to the Title X ruling, due to its failure to uphold life and refer women to murder their babies, the fact of the matter is that it still receives well over $400 million in federal funds.RELATED:  $100 Million Grant Given to Sesame Street to Create Programming for Muslim Migrant Kids

The Heritage Foundation reported in 2018 that Planned Parenthood received more than $1.5 billion in taxpayer funding over the course of three years.

A recent government report has revealed that Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, received over $1.5 billion in taxpayer funds from 2013 to 2015.

In 2016, over 120 House and Senate members sent a letter to Government Accountability Office requesting information on federal funding for certain organizations involved in health-related activities.

The report was made public last week, and the findings are astounding.

Over a three-year period, Planned Parenthood and its affiliates spent $288 million in federal funds. They also received $1.2 billion in funding from Medicaid, which combines federal and state funds.

That adds up to a whopping total of $1.5 billion in taxpayer funds from federal health programs.

Yet despite receiving billions in taxpayer funds over the course of three years, Planned Parenthood’s scope and services have both declined.

This means that in the course of the same three year period, they would have only lost roughly $180 million during the same time.

That’s still substantial, but it hardly eliminates the baby murder mills from using federal funds to refer women for abortions.  After all, money is money, and that money is first being given to them without any constitutional authority and second, no one can actually tell you which dollar is being used for abortion referrals and which are being used for anything else, including the promotion of the transgender agenda.

The simple fact of the matter is that no funds should be given to organizations for any reason, as there is no authorization in our Constitution for us to be supporting Planned Parenthood or any other organization like them for any reason.RELATED:  Marines Testify About Being Beaten & Called Ethnic Slurs In Brutal Antifa Mob Attack In Philadelphia

Our nation has had a progression of ungodly leaders.  Their ungodliness is seen in a continued turn away from the God of the Bible – to a god of our own making – a controllable god – a god who will approve our works rather than challenge them.  The god of America is a God who does not rebuke ungodliness – immorality – sensuality – or sin in general.  This god will not speak up for the unborn – but will speak strong words against anyone who threatens our own personal quest for happiness and self-fulfillment at any cost.  This god is a mushy god who is all about us – about us getting what we want – this is the selfie-god who is all about us defining ourselves however we want.

Pres. Trump AKA (Cyrus) Has Taken His Position On Abortion

The Bible definitely teaches that the unborn are persons because the unborn possesses personal attributes, are described by personal pronouns, Jesus is called a child at conception, the unborn are called children, are protected by the same punishment as for adults, are called by God before birth, and are known personally by God just like any other person.  Since abortion is murdering a person, abortion is morally wrong (Gen. 9:6Rom. 1:28-29).

Like Joseph and Daniel of the Old Testament who served secular kings, we are called to serve everyone and help them fulfill their divine destiny. Jesus made it clear that people who want to lead or be great must be the servants of all. Serving is the way of leadership in the kingdom.

“As most people know, and for those who would like to know, I am strongly pro-life, with the three exceptions — rape, incest and protecting the life of the mother — the same position taken by Ronald Reagan,” he tweeted.

Trump then touted his achievements in his tenure and urged Americans to stick with him for the next election.

“We have come very far in the last two years with 105 wonderful new federal judges (many more to come), two great new Supreme Court justices, the Mexico City Policy, and a whole new & positive attitude about the right to life,” he wrote. “The radical Left, with late-term abortion (and worse), is imploding on this issue.”

“We must stick together and win for life in 2020. If we are foolish and do not stay united as one, all of our hard-fought gains for life can, and will, rapidly disappear!”

As previously reported, in 2016, while still a presidential candidate, Trump wrote in an op-ed published by the Washington Examiner, “Let me be clear — I am pro-life. I support that position with exceptions allowed for rape, incest or the life of the mother is at risk.”

He also told NBC’s “Today” show that same year that he would like to see the exceptions in the Republican platform

Mr.Cyrus Trump talks the talk but he does not walk the Christian walk. As I’ve said before- he’s got those heretics (prosperity gospel lunatics) around him, advising him and of course, they come up short when it comes to God’s desires for mankind. God uses ungodly men to complete his plan, I believe we’re witnessing another chapter in the book, now as we watch Mr. Trump play every card in the deck to his advantage.

Our elected officials, bureaucrats so-called law enforcement agencies are turning the people against each other, it’s actually demonic, The history of bureaucrats turning on the people, Nixon, Clinton, Bush, and of course Obama, the finale, Donald Trump, On November 8, 2016, I cast my vote for Donald Trump for President of the United States. I wanted “The Great Disruptor.”I wanted the swamp drained. But, above all, I wanted America to truly become great again, It didn’t happen, none of it. Instead, we’re in a far worse… far more dangerous spot than we were just two years ago…

 Abortion on demand has led to the death of over 50 million unborn babies in our nation. The clarion call for absolute autonomy over our sexual decisions has led to abortion being elevated to a birth control choice. This has led to over 4000 abortions a day in our nation – many for no other reason than sex selection or a pregnancy being a hindrance to what we want at the time. But with the recent revelation of the house of horrors called, Planned Parenthood, where babies are being killed and then dismembered for sale and profit, our nation has faced a decision on a whole new level of the carving up of the unborn.  

       The videos of this are almost too macabre to even discuss – because they involve carefully aborting babies and then slicing them up to sell organs.  One video even reveals that babies are being beheaded so that their decapitated heads can be sold to the highest bidder. God is already furious over the shredding of babies or they’re being burned alive in the womb by abortion. The revelation of the callous butchery of babies by Planned Parenthood for profit may be the last straw in this matter, revealing just how far we’ve descended into the moral abyss of our own wickedness. 

       The fact that we have a political party defending this organization – and another party without the moral fortitude to stand up until this butchery is stopped – reveals just how morally bankrupt our nation has become.  There is no real hope that any kind of political solution is coming. The fact that there is even debate about this is shocking! We should not turn first to the political realm to address this.  We should be turning to God – in repentance for allowing it to happen – then in extraordinary prayer as we cry out for it to stop immediately! But let me be clear – God is not interested in just stopping the carving up of these precious little ones – He demands that they stop being killed period. He demands that the sexual immorality that leads to these pregnancies be repented of and abandoned. He calls us to holiness – not just to try to move the peg of sexual insanity back one step. This will NEVER happen by political action alone. If there is not a truly brokenhearted cry for our own sins first – and then the sins of our fathers and our nation second – there will not be a revival, which I truly believe will be the FIRST step we must take to address these things.  

       To turn to religion and high profile religious figures to stop this “bloody earth” event also will not work. I thank God for the few who have blown the trumpet to warn us of what is coming if we do not repent and turn from shedding innocent blood. But the church is not even issuing a clear call on this matter. The fact that a visit by the head of the Roman Catholic church, who has long championed the unborn, did NOT mention once this godless holocaust and harvest of the unborn, reveals just how void of God our religiousness has become.  If we don’t have the moral fortitude to stand up against this horrific harvesting of the unborn for profit – an act reminiscent of Nazi Germany under Hitler – why should God, for any reason, not bring His judgment without mercy to our nation? We bicker about whether we should shut down our government as a political ploy – when honestly – we should be flooding the altars of our land with our tears of repentance and brokenness. We should be gathering in our public squares due to a call of the Holy Spirit (not due to a political or religious movement calling for a day of prayer) to pray and weep over such horrors. We don’t need a day of prayer – which has become far more a day of speeches and political posturing – we need a day of public repentance, humiliation, and confession of our sins and rebellion against God. Let us issue THAT call – much like that issued by President Lincoln – and see how much public support we receive. I would fear that such a clear call would make even evangelical churches back away – squeamish over how the public might view the political correctness of such language.  

Where are the Elijahs of God, who hide in prayer and then confront the Baal worship of our day?  Where is the Moses of our land, who publicly rebukes the sin of the people, then goes before God for 40 days of prayer – pleading that God does not destroy them due to their sins? Where are the Ezras, who throw themselves before the steps of the church and government, literally tearing out their own hair as they weep for the sins of our nation – and the sins of the church? Oh that we would see men stand in the gap in these perilous times!  

God knows that evil is not combated with love and understanding.

King David Had This Down:

The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers, The Cowboys. The round pegs in the square holes misfits. The ones who see things totally differently. They’re not comfortable with the rules. And they have no respect for the status quo Pharisees “hypocrites”. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do- ignores them”. Because they change things. They push GOD’s human race forward and that bothers the politicians and otherworldly liars. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, I see a genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. SRH….

My name is Steve Meyers and I need to share a vision and warning that the Lord showed me back in April 2007….

Many of you will ask why I waited so long to share the warning. I didn’t. I shared the story with everyone that would listen from pastors to friends to family to colleagues. Immediately following the initial vision, I called a close friend. I told him to sit down that I had something to tell him. I needed it documented as I knew this was supernatural and from God. As I witness events unfolding today, I need to share the vision again.

The silencing of the American people before 2020?… Digital Gulag

“The human heart is an idol factory.”

The Un-Godly — Those That Suppress the Truth, the social media giants built multi-billion dollar empires by giving everyone a voice, but now that they have such a dominant position on the Internet they have decided that many prominent conservative voices should be completely silenced.

Our government has been overthrown. As evidenced by Trump’s capitulation on the border, his recent servitude to the GMO industry and his acquiescence to the warmongers, our President has been compromised. Our liberties are being eliminated one by one. Gun confiscation is next. The Constitution is gasping its last breaths. Our borders are destroyed and our culture has been turned upside down by every perversion known to man.

It’s interesting when you connect the dots, the masses are opposed to God’s blueprint and therefore will bring destruction upon the earth intentionally. Me, I, mine, narcissists generation will bring total destruction upon God’s people, only the chosen will survive, we live in evil times, dress appropriately, put on the full armor of God!…

Force is now the only rule remaining in deep state-controlled America. Everything else has collapsed. There is no free speech, no fair trial, no system of justice, no reasonable expectation of human rights anywhere, no fair elections, no honest news, no honest Wall Street operations, no real public education, no clean food, and threats from the elitist, the power structure that is hell-bent on bringing the New World order into the reality of the sleeping masses, get woke or get yoked, the choice still lives in the people’s hands. Next, the AntiChrist will appear with many empty promises, peace, and security, in reality, it’s the yoking of mankind, We are on the Doorstep of the Great Tribulations…

The prophet does not confuse truth with consensus. The prophet does not confuse God’s word with the word of those who happen to hold power at present, or with the opinion of the majority. This is because powerholders and the majority can fall victim to a lying spirit-and this means a power that actually seizes the majority of experts, the political leadership, and the public.

HYPER-REPROBATES…
Thanks to people like Pastor Steven Anderson and the choir of preachers he has assembled within the New Independent Fundamentalist Baptist movement there has been a resurgence in what is called the Reprobate Doctrine. A Biblical doctrine that demonstrates in scripture, that God will turn people over to their vile lifestyles as a curse, blinding them to salvation in Jesus, giving them over to a devil’s hell for eternity. A doctrine that I believe is completely Biblical and defined by the Apostle Paul in Romans 1 is unmistakably visceral language.

Let Me Make This Abundantly Clear. (I Am Apolitical) While I Have a General Distaste for Electric Cars and Politicians No Matter the Party They Belong To, I Am Unashamedly Politically a Bible Believing Conservative Christian. I Have a Severe Distrust of Government. I Believe It Is the Most Inefficient and Ineffective Way to Accomplish Most Things. While I Strongly Disagree with Liberals/Progressives and Conservative on Most Political Issues, and While I Believe Liberals/Progressives and Most Politicians Are Terribly Misguided and Naive About What Big Government Will Eventually Result In, I Strive to Not Question Their Motives. at the Same Time, While I Find Myself in Agreement with Conservative Politicians on Some Issues, I Do Not Believe Electing Republicans Is the Answer to Everything. for Me, Very Sadly, the Main Difference Between Republicans and Democrats Is How Quickly They Want to Drive the Car Towards the Cliff. Simply Put, I Do Not Believe the Government Is the Solution for Everything. I Do Not Place Any Faith, Trust, or Hope in Any Politicians to Fix What Is Wrong with the World. “Come Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20) The prophet does not confuse truth with consensus. The prophet does not confuse God’s word with the word of those who happen to hold power at present, or with the opinion of the majority. This is because powerholders and the majority can fall victim to a lying spirit-and this means a power that actually seizes the majority of experts, the political leadership, and the public.StevieRay Hansen

    FOCA Update
    January 27, 2009 by Editor1 and Editor I’ve just returned from Washington, DC where I attended the March for Life and various other pro-life events and meetings. And I want to brief you on the latest information regarding the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA).
    Our efforts to fight FOCA are beginning to bear fruit. Collectively, pro-lifers are making enough noise that we’ve given the President and pro-abortion leaders in Congress second thoughts about moving forward with FOCA in its entirety. Notice I said entirety. Their alternate plan is even more dangerous for the babies by being more difficult to counter.
    First, we can’t let up on continuing to make noise about FOCA. If you haven’t yet done so, please sign the online petition against FOCA [outdated link removed]. Please also get as many people as you can to sign the petition. We can use these numbers to fight their new strategy coming down the legislative pipeline. Let me explain.
    FOCA would literally kick to the curb any protective legislation for the babies which has passed on federal, state and local levels. As a result, it’s being seen as too radical for too many Americans. So the President and pro-abortion leaders of Congress are looking at plans to pass FOCA, piece-by-piece, attached to other bills. This could be devastating for the babies because it would make it easier for their abortion agenda to get lost in a larger bill. It would have the same effect of gradually warming the pot of water with the frog inside. FOCA in its entirety would be too hot to handle and the frog would immediately jump out. But if the legislation was passed little by little, the temperature in the pot would gradually warm up until it was too late for the frog to realize his dilemma and he would die.
    Our job is to alert federal lawmakers, Americans and the media that FOCA is present every time that they propose legislation with parts of it embedded. This makes the entire bill unacceptable. Here are examples of what we can expect by pro-abortion leaders of Congress in their piecemeal efforts to pass FOCA: Use the momentum behind universal health care to include funding for abortion-on-demand.
    Bring back partial-birth abortion-once again killing babies during delivery.
    Take away any rights of parents to be involved before their minor daughter undergoes a surgical or chemical abortion.
    Deny women the right to be fully informed to the dangers of abortion before having one.
    Force health care providers and professionals to participate in the killing of innocent human life.
    Brutally kill babies who survive late-term abortion by reversing the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act.
    Put women’s health and lives at risk by blocking protective regulations of abortion mills-many that operate like dangerous back-alley abortion facilities.
    These and other ghastly realities await unborn babies and their mothers if we’re not vigilant in our efforts to stop the incremental advancement of FOCA.
    Here’s how they plan to do it. Pro-abortion leaders in Congress will attach their deadly piecemeal legislation as riders to appropriation bills. These will be drafted in April. However, there are things we must do in the meantime.
    We must continue making noise by letting our pro-life voices be heard. One of the easiest ways to do this is sign the online petition against FOCA [outdated link removed]. This will help us keep the pressure on.
    Alert everyone you can about this new and deadly agenda by the most pro-abortion President and Congress in history. Share this email with others! Bring everyone up to speed by using your email address books, circles of friends, coworkers and church members. Link to our FOCA petition using Facebook or other Internet websites. Send the link by blogging, text messages and Twitter-use whatever technology and avenue available to you. Now is the time to alert the troops! Bradley Mattes

      One of Pres. Trump’s campaign promises was to defund Planned Parenthood, of course, that did not happen, he needs to be held accountable 2020

    Breaking NewsThe Battle is Shifting
    Editor1 Breaking News Archive 2009

    The Battle is Shifting
    The battle over health care reform has moved from the House of Representatives to the Senate. Pro-life Democrats flexed their political muscle in the House and forced a vote on funding of abortion in the health care bill-and prevailed.
    Pro-abortion activists and politicians went ballistic for being handed such a high profile defeat while enjoying the most pro-abortion president and congress in our nation’s history.
    President Obama recently addressed the issue of funding abortion in health care reform. During a TV interview with ABC News‘ Jake Tapper, he said, “We’re not looking to change what is the principle that has been in place for a very long time, which is federal dollars are not used to subsidize abortions.” But in the same interview the President said, “there needs to be some more work” on the health care bill and indicated that he opposed the Stupak amendment restricting abortion funding. This left everyone-political pundits, activist and members of Congress-confused. His statements clearly conflict.
    Remember, this is a president who doesn’t let facts get in the way of a good political argument. Just months into office, his administration released a memo warning Americans that pro-lifers-quoting the words of the memo, those “dedicated to [an] opposition to abortion”-might be “domestic rightwing terrorists.”
    Then, when an individual shouts “Allah-u-Akbar” (God is great) before slaughtering 13 patriots (and one unborn child) at Ft. Hood-the same individual who repeatedly emailed radical Muslim leaders who advocate suicide bombs to take out American soldiers-the President says we shouldn’t “jump to conclusions” by calling him a domestic terrorist. Both of these statements by Mr. Obama were contrary to the facts, but it still didn’t deter him from making his political points. Therefore, pro-life Americans need to be ready when the President says he’s opposed to funding abortion in health care reform, but then does all he can to make it possible.
    The battle to protect innocent human life must now shift to our senators. Communicate with them on a regular basis between now and the ultimate vote. Abortion isn’t our only concern. Here are some key points you should convey:
    Clear wording must be included to prohibit funding of abortion in any health care reform legislation. The Stupak amendment in the House version must also be included in the Senate.
    Ask them to oppose any bill that doesn’t protect the conscience of medical professionals. Doctors, nurses or pharmacists could be forced to participate in abortion or other morally objectionable procedures.
    Our elderly and chronically ill must be protected against rationing of health care to prioritize budget considerations of a government-controlled health care system. This would give way to wide scale euthanasia.
    Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, says the Senate version will not include funding of abortion. Frankly, I don’t trust him or other leaders in Congress. We’re in the battle of our lives and must do all we can to protect the most weak and defenseless among us. Here’s a link to contact your senators: http://www.senate.gov/.
    Sincerely for LIFE,
    Bradley Mattes
    Executive Director
