So the question this really comes down to is does Planned Parenthood love money more than death?
President Donald Trump has offered to maintain federal funding for Planned Parenthood if the group stops providing abortions. Its president spurned the proposal and noted that federal money already is not allowed to be used for abortion.Here's the thing. We all know it's about the Benjamins. Don't get me wrong. They love themselves some dilation and extraction but if the check don't clear, they don't care. That's the thing. They don't care if the unborn live or die and if they're not getting paid to kill it, they won't.
Trump confirmed Monday there had been discussions after The New York Times inquired about what it described as an informal proposal. In a statement to the newspaper, Trump said polling shows most Americans oppose public funding for abortion.
"As I said throughout the campaign, I am pro-life and I am deeply committed to investing in women's health and plan to significantly increase federal funding in support of nonabortion services such as cancer screenings," he said.
Trump added: "There is an opportunity for organizations to continue the important work they do in support of women's health, while not providing abortion services."
Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards said in response: "We will always stand for women's ability to make decisions about their health and lives, without interference from politicians in Washington, D.C."
But right now they're still putting on a brave face. But it all comes down to "Show me the MONEY!!!!!"
They're going to fight like Hell to keep the federal money truck backing up into their driveway. And if they lose it, it'll be interesting to see how long they stick with their "principles."
