(ConservativeInsider.org) – President Donald Trump fought fiercely for the lives of the unborn while in office. Through his Protect Life Rule, he ensured no taxpayer dollars would funnel through Title X to pay for abortions. Under this rule, Planned Parenthood opted out of receiving Title X money as it was unable to separate its abortion business from the rest of its work. However, President Joe Biden is now seeking to undo this life-saving policy.
On Wednesday, April 14, Biden proposed undoing the Trump-era policy and replacing it with a new rule that would allow Planned Parenthood, and other abortion providers, to receive the federal grants. PP applauded Biden’s move and shared its excitement for receiving government funding once again.
Chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice Jay Sekulow highlighted how much money Planned Parenthood already receives in taxpayer money on Twitter:
Planned Parenthood set a new record. They’re recording the largest number of abortions & the largest amount of taxpayer funding to date in 2020. But the Biden Admin. wants to fund MORE abortions. Sign to save the unborn: https://t.co/MqJgYox0JX

It will take time for the Department of Health and Human Services (DHS) to fully undo the Protect Life Rule, but Biden is clearly intent on doing so. While we are thankful for the time this rule was in place, the fact that a self-proclaimed Catholic president is so intent on destroying life in the womb is a sad, yet true, part of reality.
