The next time some Catholic Leftist claims that the Trump administration is not pro-life, please tell them sweetly from me that they are a damn liar:

 

 

Barack Obama must be crying in his Wheaties these days. Why? Because day after day after day, President Donald Trump is utterly dismantling Obama’s pen-and-phone legacy. From eliminating crushing regulations, to cutting the size of government, to signing into law tax cuts that include the elimination of Obama’s tyrannical “individual mandate,” the eradication of the Obama Era is progressing rather swimmingly. And now, Trump has lobbed grenades at yet another of Obama’s sacred cows: Planned Parenthood:

The Trump administration is overturning Obama-era advisories aimed at preventing states from cutting Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood.

The administration is rescinding an April 2016 letter that the Obama administration sent to states warning them that restricting Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood could violate federal law. Administration officials said Friday it is rescinding the guidance to give states more flexibility over how they manage Medicaid.

“States who run Medicaid jointly have had a say in whether providers in borders eligible to participate in Medicaid program,” said Charmaine Yoest, assistant secretary for public affairs at Health and Human Services.

The Obama administration sent the 2016 letter after 10 states moved to end Medicaid funding to the women’s health and abortion provider. States targeted Planned Parenthood in response to a series of undercover videos from an anti-abortion activist that showed Planned Parenthood officials discussing the donation and harvesting of aborted fetal tissue.

  1. In the meantime the USCCB is calling for the funding of two pro-contraception/abortion entities under the twisted banner of “they do other good things (read as social justice agenda).
    I wonder if they’d give Judas Iscariot a pass to heaven because he was one of the Apostles that was “sent forth to preach and heal”?

  2. On average, 500 million a year gets into the hands of WTM Inc.
    from taxpayer dollars. The redistribution of these funds to Federally Qualified Health Centers and away from Planned Parenthood is still a very good idea, however that proposal was washed away in last year’s vote.

    I hope the President keeps his promise to Defund Planned Parenthood on a federal level. Chances are slim but we have a chance non the less.

    Thanks for the link above.

  3. No DonL Judas was not sent forth to preach and to heal. Judas had hanged himself before the crucifixion. Jesus sent the Apostles to preach and heal after His resurrection.
    If the money from PP was used to make adoption less expensive, there would be no problem. That would be wonderful.
    Do taxpayers know that Obamacare was poised to force taxpayers to pay for sex reassignments, better known as neutering.
    As a non-profit PP was donating huge amounts of money to the Democratic party as kickback… also illegal.
    Let the money pay for adoptions.

  4. For those of us in the Catholic Libertarian camp (yes, we are real, much to the consternation of bishops left and right) this is simply one more example along with NPR, PBS, NEA, etc, of government activity in the lives of people where it has no business. It is extra constitutional and one more example of tyranny in a soft glove.

  5. Don’t kid yourself Donald Trump does not have any religious beliefs. Donald Trump is pro Trump and has organized an army of fundamentalists, white supremacists and wealthy 1%’rs that willingly sell their souls to see one of their issues advance in a parade along with Trump’s porn star mistress, anti-“shithole country” immigrant stance, “pussy-grabbing” mentality. I actually came on your website to read a spiritual article about God’s “still small voice” and then found you peddling this “Trump is really a Christian” crap. Wipe the dung from your eyes and look – the emperor has no clothes.

  6. Trump’s support for pro life agenda appears to some to be hypocritical. Some believe it is not really what he believes

  7. Matt A, Mucho Trump Derangement, Amigo.

    As brevity is the soul of wit, here is a quick summary of your libels: “I Hate Real Americans!” How did that work out for you rats in November 2016?

    Trump 2020!

    PS: A real Christian doesn’t bear false witness on other persons.

  8. Its not a stretch to think that you are subtly messaging that the only important position that our President must have is his latest stance on abortion (which dates all the way back to when – 2017?). Pro-Life=good, in fact so good that its not important what else he does. If he is good, he is one of us (you Christians) and we (you Christians) should support him because all we (you Christians) care about right now is taking down planned parenthood – (Here i also infer “not the whole Kingdom of God just this one most important corner”). Readers of the-american-catholic.com aren’t interested in anything but prioritizing this one sin over a shipyard full of other sinful issues about which the Bible is pretty clear? The other article is excellent btw – but this article about a cherry picked presidential position du jour seems less than complete. But i do read that its main purpose is to tell “leftist catholics” that they lie and are damned? Not buying that this piece isn’t celebrating Donald Trump – Christian like “us”.

  9. No, what I am “messaging” is that Trump is pro-life in his deeds since he became President. During the 2016 campaign I long doubted his pro-life bona fides. In late September of 2016 he gave specific pledges to the pro-life cause in a letter. I then reluctantly threw my support behind him:

    For me abortion is not just a issue but the issue. I don’t know how any morally sane person could not think that is the case with almost a million slaying of the innocents each year as a result of legalized abortion. Trump has thus far kept his word on abortion and that is a fact very important to me and I will put a spotlight on that fact when I have a chance to do so.

  10. Every great empire is supported by rock solid foundations.
    The United States of America started to erode it’s own foundation when wrongfully contrived legalized killing of innocent children in 1973.
    How shall a nation ask for blessings when it doesn’t respect the greatest blessings of all. Human Life.

    People have more empathy for mistreated dogs and cats than they do for the babies that ripped apart, arm by arm, leg by leg in the wombs of their mothers and yet People still can’t get it!! They call us one topic voters…damn right!
    This is THE issue because it’s a sacred human being. A soul on a mission on earth. The great and beautiful future of that soul never had a chance.
    And the great and beautiful future of America?
    It still has a chance.
    Regardless of those who cry over the abuses of animals but only can muster hatred for those who cry over the killing of innocent children.
    What a world.

  11. If, in his eight years as President, Donald J. Trump does nothing besides appointing a couple hundred rational federal judges, he will have done his job.

    Mac!

    I think this will help you to sleep at night. You want to understand that most of us aren’t “playing with a full deck.” Take Matt A for example. His “deck” appears to be comprise of three cards the “I-Hate-Trump” card; the race card; and the Joker. Me: I have two cards. They are both Jokers.

    Indeed, the Bible, the Gospels, and 2,000+ years of Church teaching unequivocally teach that abortion is always evil. The unmentioned (by MattA) other issues that MattA says the Bible is “pretty clear” about generally are matters of prudential judgment. Apparently, those distinctions are lost on the post-modern, liberal TDS-sufferer.

  12. Worse than Murder Inc. Godmother jumping ship.
    What a legacy of blood spilling.

    Thomas More Society
    My dear friend,

    Twelve years and 3.5 million innocent lives destroyed later, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards has resigned.

    During her tenure, Richards grew Planned Parenthood from an $800 million healthcare non-profit to a $1.5 BILLION, taxpayer-funded abortion giant.

    That’s right. Under Richards, the number of abortions skyrocketed, while the number of critical cancer screenings plummeted – from over 2,000,000 in 2005 to just 660,000 in 2016.

    But despite serving fewer patients, providing far fewer non-abortion services, and closing half of the Planned Parenthood affiliates across the country, business continued to thrive.

    Then an undercover journalist named David Daleiden released video footage of Planned Parenthood’s top leadership – medical directors, national program directors, even the Senior Director of Medical Services – callously negotiating the harvesting and sale of aborted baby body parts.

    The videos outraged every day Americans, and suddenly David Daleiden and his Center for Medical Progress were household names.

    Both houses of Congress launched investigations – and in December 2016, committees of both the House and the Senate released reports detailing evidence that crimes were committed and referring Planned Parenthood affiliates and others in the abortion industry to the FBI, Department of Justice and to state and local law enforcement for investigation and possible criminal charges.

    One year later in December 2017, the Department of Justice launched an investigation into Planned Parenthood’s fetal tissue business.

    And then just one month later, Cecile Richards resigned as the CEO of Planned Parenthood.

    Is the timing a coincidence, or is there more to Richards’ departure? Only time will tell.

    But as an attorney, I can tell you from years of trial experience that you don’t get caught red-handed the way Cecile Richards and Planned Parenthood did and bounce back from it.

    That’s why we need to release the rest of David Daleiden’s videos so the public can see the true evil of Planned Parenthood and its allies.

    Publishing these videos is the only way we’ll shut down these soulless abortion providers that murder hundreds of thousands of innocent babies every year.

    It’s going to be a long, drawn-out legal battle. But I believe David’s videos will deliver the death blow to Planned Parenthood and the rest of the abortion industry – if we can win in court.

    Thank you for your generous support of the Thomas More Society.

    May God Bless You,

    Signature
    Tom Brejcha – President & Chief Counsel

    I have financially supported David Daleiden’s team.
    Please consider the Thomas More Society in your 2018 donations.

  13. When police break into a house without a warrant and find a dead sovereign person hidden in the closet, the evidence is admissible in a court of law because of the dead sovereign person whose civil rights are still intact. His must be freed from the kidnapping and homicide. The dead victim’s civil rights must be restored to him and acknowledgement of the injustice done to him must be made. Justice must be restored to him and society.
    David Daleiden has been indicted for numerous crimes none of which carry the weight of Justice. The aborted babies are sovereign persons and deserve to have their innocent lives acknowledged and their Justice restored to them.
    Undercover videos to save innocent babies are operated through the power of attorney of the innocent baby’s, the sovereign person’s civil rights.
    The corruption of abortion and those complicit in murdering babies must be brought to Justice.
    David Daleiden operated through citizen’s arrest, a power the government denies to its citizens, a power the government has no right to deny, nor to usurp for itself.

  14. I care little about President Trump’s private opinions. He was hired to do a public job and if he does it well, we have gotten our money’s worth. There are aspects of all president’s jobs that are less satisfying than others as that is the nature of things. Unfortunately, our last president allowed his sense of superiority, rather badly misplaced, to feel he was competent in all things. We note how that turned out.

  15. Why ought Cecil Richard’s human rights be more sovereign than the newly begotten child’s sovereign rights? All men are created equal at conception. The state gives man a birth certificate. “their Creator” endows man with unalienable human rights.
    I wonder how much money we could get for Cecile Richard’s liver, lungs and heart if she has one. Oh, that is right. The state has outlawed the selling of human body parts.
