Friends, there simply is no excuse, and don’t tell me about compromise and the Democrats did this and that. Republicans control everything in DC. They are the party that tells us they are against Planned Parenthood and abortion, but all we have seen from them in DC is be abortion regulators, not abortion abolitionists. And they’ve done it again.
In a vote on Thursday, House Republicans voted 240-186 to approve the joint funding and budget bill the Senate passed shortly after 5:30 a.m.
However, what many were not told in the American public is the continued unconstitutional spending and the funding of the murder mills known as Planned Parenthood.
You remember, right? The same organization that has been illegally engaging in the trafficking of human body parts from murdered babies for profit while crying that they are the victims of those that exposed them?
That’s the same Planned Parenthood that will receive half a billion dollars of your money in violation of the clear restraints of the Constitution, and all so that Congress could say they “got something done” and averted government shutdown.
“Congress is slitting the throats of innocent babies—and their own—by funding the abortion giant Planned Parenthood,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and co-author of Abortion Free, in a statement sent to Breitbart News. “Soon we will be hearing the siren call of ‘Defund Planned Parenthood’ as an election year rallying cry from the same Republicans who continually sign off on Planned Parenthood’s funding. But the best way to defund Planned Parenthood, is to never have funded them to begin with.”
In its latest annual report, Planned Parenthood shows it took in nearly $544 million in taxpayer funding, as it also boosted its profits by $21 million—or 27 percent—from the prior year. The organization continues to perform over 320,000 abortions per year.
Despite calling itself a “women’s healthcare” group, many of the organization’s non-abortion services are in decline.
Planned Parenthood’s birth control services continued to drop in the past year to 2,701,866—almost four percent—since its 2015-2016 report when it clocked 2,808,815 contraception services. This number was down from 2,945,059 in 2014-2015.
Then, there’s the hypocrite himself, House Speaker Paul Ryan. Listen to this double talk.
“We are the pro-life generation and we have to stand up for these values,” Ryan said.
Sorry, is that what your lips said Mr. Ryan or what your actions declared? Because your lips say one thing, sort of like you are fiscal conservative when you are really a big government spender.
Remember, Paul Ryan was one that claimed, “We think reconciliation is the tool [to defund Planned Parenthood], because that gets it in law. Reconciliation is the way to go.”
“Really, there’s no excuse for this,” said American Principles Project Executive Director Terry Schilling. “Republicans control Congress. We have a Republican president.”
“The GOP can make all the procedural arguments they want, although they passed on an opportunity to defund Planned Parenthood as a stand-alone reconciliation measure last year,” he added. “The reality is that the Democrats would never let ridiculous Senate rules get in the way of passing their agenda.”
Ryan and others like him are abortion regulators and funders. Their hands are covered in the blood of millions of Americans because they will not stand in opposition to the murder of the unborn for fear they will be labeled as “hateful,” “divisive,” “unloving,” or worse, “racist.”
Ryan is nothing like Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) who stood against the budget bill for a number of constitutional and moral reasons. His stand was so strong that he received violent threats.
If Paul Ryan is actually interested in being someone who opposes abortion and is actually for life, perhaps he should see what that looks like. I suggest he take a look and listen to a man who walks the talk, Oklahoma gubernatorial candidate and author of Bringing Back the Black Robed Regiment Dan Fisher.
In the latest budget deal, just like all the previous ones, it’s Americans who are the losers, and by letting these traitors to the Constitution remain in office, we are complicit in their decisions and the holocaust of millions of Americans since Roe v. Wade.
God help us!
