Trump Promised Planned Parenthood THIS, IF They Stop Abortion Services!

0

The issue of funding for Planned Parenthood has been a hot button issue for a while. It was a major debate point during the 2016 presidential election. President Trump made it clear from the very beginning he would not allow federal funding to be allocated to abortion services provided by the organization.

But now the President is relenting and saying that he will grant federal funding to Planned Parenthood upon the agreement they will cease to provide abortion services.  The New York Times confirmed with the President that this is an informal proposal not yet out of the beginning stages. The President said,

“there is an opportunity for organizations to continue the important work they do in support of women’s health, while not providing abortion services.”

Allegedly, in private conversations with White House officials there were promises that Planned Parenthood funding could even increase if they stopped abortion services. Despite the sharp contrast in beliefs amongst Republicans about Planned Parenthood funding, the President previously said the following about them,

“Millions and millions of women—cervical cancer, breast cancer—are helped by Planned Parenthood. would defund it because I’m pro-life, but millions of women are helped by Planned Parenthood.”

However, Planned Parenthood Federation of America President, Cecile Richards refused to budge. In response to the President’s promises she said that Planned Parenthood,

“will always stand for women’s ability to make decisions about their health and lives, without interference from politicians.”

One major donor has called Trump’s promises nothing more than a political maneuver done now that he knows his previous stances on women’s reproductive issues are so unpopular. However, it appears to be a softening of Trump’s former stances. In the height of such divisiveness surrounding health care and immigration, it seems the President is willing to work towards common ground.
