This is going to make the left go insane but that’s a good thing. It’s also great because Trump is once again returning power to the states, where it belongs.

President Trump Signs Law to Let States Defund Planned Parenthood
On Thursday, President Donald Trump signed a law reversing President Obama’s last-minute attempt to force states to direct family planning funding to Planned Parenthood and other organizations that commit abortions.
“This week the pro-life movement had two huge victories: first, the swearing-in of Justice Gorsuch and now, President Trump will undo former President Obama’s parting gift to the abortion industry,” declared Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, in a statement on the bill’s signing.
“The resolution signed today simply ensures that states are no forced to fund an abortion business with taxpayer dollars,” Dannenfelser argued. “Rather, states have the option to spend Title X money on comprehensive health care clinics that better serve women and girls.”
Obama issued the order in December of last year, barring states from withholding federal family planning funds from Planned Parenthood affiliates and other health clinics that provide abortions.
States where people don’t want their tax dollars going to Planned Parenthood will now have a choice.
Don’t leftists always say they believe in choice?
