Claire Chretien : Apr 13, 2017 : LifeSiteNews

"This week the pro-life movement had two huge victories: first, the swearing-in of Justice Gorsuch and now, President Trump will undo former President Obama's parting gift to the abortion industry." Marjorie Dannenfelser

The regulation, which pro-life groups call former President Obama's "parting gift" to the abortion industry, forced states to give Title X money to organizations that commit abortions. Now, states if they wish will be able to withold Title X money from abortion-committing organizations, instead prioritizing non-abortion businesses.

Federal Title X dollars fund "family planning services," but technically not abortion. However, government money Planned Parenthood receives, helps the abortion-centered organization overall. This money is fungible, pro-life advocates say.

The U.S. House voted 230 to 188 to overturn this regulation on February 16. The U.S. Senate voted 50-50 on it on March 13. Vice President Mike Pence broke the tie, sending the bill to Trump's desk.
