Yesterday, Pres. Donald Trump signed a bill (H.J. Res. 43) that reversed a “last-minute” law from the departing Obama administration which prevented states from denying funds to Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers under Title X.
With this new legislation, states will be able to direct taxpayer dollars to comprehensive healthcare clinics that better serve women and do not do abortions.
All three of the legislators who represent Rockland in Congress voted against this bill: Rep. Nita Lowey, and Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand.
This was the second prolife victory this week, the first being the swearing in of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court on Monday.
