Planned Parenthood Gets Hit With Eight-Figure Funding Cut

Planned Parenthood is still suffering from the fallout after the candid camera videos of 2015 revealed a very insidious (illegal) business of selling aborted fetal remains for profit.

In the aftermath, multiple states have defunded the organization and more are set to do so this year.

Enter the White House who, in the early days of the new administration, reinstituted the Mexico City policy which bans tax dollars from funding abortion as a part of international aid.

The administration went one step further by extending that ban on funds from the State Department to global health assistance groups.

One those groups is Planned Parenthood, which just saw a cut of roughly thirty million from their federal tax dollar gravy train.

They’re not very happy, which makes US very happy.

Here’s more from Redstate…

Planned Parenthood takes half a billion in taxpayer cash annually, but at least they’ve recently taken a multi-million dollar hit that they’ll really feel.

According to LifeNews, Planned Parenthood failed to comply with a Trump initiated policy that blocks foreign groups from promoting or performing abortions overseas:

(C-Fam) A State Department report released yesterday found wide acceptance of the expanded Mexico City Policy which blocks funding for foreign groups performing or promoting abortion overseas. The report surveyed organizations which receive U.S. funds to deliver health care to vulnerable populations overseas.

The expanded policy, called “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance (PLGHA),” was instituted by President Donald Trump in January 2017 and extends the policy to the $8.8 billion in funds appropriated for global health assistance through Department of State, U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Department of Defense (DoD).

And guess who falls into the non-compliant category.
