Thumbs up Trump Signs New Rule Stripping Abortion Clinics Of Federal Funding

I was glad to learn about this. No one should have to pay for the medical procedures of someone whom they don't even know. Unfortunately this happens all the time with programs like Medicaid, but at least it will stop taxpayer-funded abortions.

Quote:
The Trump administration issued a rule Friday barring groups that provide abortions or abortion referrals from participating in the $286 million federal family planning program, a long-expected move that would direct money away from Planned Parenthood and toward faith-based providers.

The regulation, called “The Protect Life Rule,” shores up Title X of 1970’s Public Health Service Act, prohibiting the Department of Health and Human Services from funding family planning projects in which abortion is part of the family planning process. President Ronald Reagan first issued the rule, which was upheld by the Supreme Court in 1991.

President Bill Clinton rescinded the policy through an executive order. No president has since sought to re-issue the rule.

Groups who support abortion and a woman’s supposed right to choose were outraged. https://thefederalistpapers.org/opin...-FV0wqkrYFLKv0
I'm pro-choice, and I'm not outraged; I support the reinstatement of this rule. This merely prevents federal funding of abortions; this doesn't prevent abortion per se. I don't believe family planning is something the federal government should fund; that should be left to the individual, but at least this is a start.
