The Trump Administration will cut some funding to Planned Parenthood today via Executive Order. In fact, this order has been on the books AND  was later upheld by the Supreme Court after President Reagan first announced.

BUT, by the time the order was upheld by the country's top court, Reagan's second term had ended and Bill Clinton was in office so it was never enacted.

According to the Weekly Standard, a Trump Administration Official said: “Unlike the Reagan regulation, the proposal will not prohibit counseling for clients about abortion, but neither will it include the current, potentially illegal mandate that projects must counsel and refer for abortion. This proposal does not necessarily defund Planned Parenthood, as long as they’re willing to disentangle taxpayer funds from abortion as a method of family planning, which is required by the Title X law. Any grantees that perform, support, or refer for abortion have a choice – disentangle themselves from abortion or fund their activities with privately raised funds.”

So does this action make you happy?
