Trump just opened the door to defund Planned Parenthood

President Donald Trump signed legislation that lets states withhold federal family planning funds from Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers.
One of President Barack Obama's last acts was to sign a rule that helped Planned Parenthood.
Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the anti-abortion group the Susan B. Anthony List, who attended Trump's closed-door signing ceremony, was pleased with the "victory" in giving states options. Vice President Pence cast the tie-breaking vote in the Senate in favor of the resolution.
"Stripping millions of Americans of the critical health care services that Planned Parenthood provides doesn't just hurt women - it hurts entire families and their economic security", said Stephanie Schriock, the head of EMILY's List, a Democratic political action committee that works to elect pro-choice politicians.
"This is an attack, again, right from the get-go, from the Trump administration, that's about attacking health care, attacking women, attacking low-income communities who need critical access to these services", Laura McQuade, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Great Plains, told "Up to Date" host Steve Kraske on Friday.
Republicans and abortion opponents said the new law will let states divert money now going to groups that perform abortions to organizations that do not.
Anti-abortion advocates are making significant headway throughout the United States, passing some of the most restrictive abortion laws ever, The Washington Post reported.
"State legislatures around the country have spoken out about their preference for prioritizing more comprehensive primary and preventative care providers for the receipt of Title X funding", the duo wrote in a joint op-ed for the Washington Examiner, "and their voice should be respected by bureaucrats in the federal government".
But given the rhetoric surrounding Planned Parenthood in Congress, this effort isn't all that surprising.
The President has even said Ivanka Trump would be his guide on women's health issues. (It is already illegal to use taxpayer dollars to pay for abortions, except in cases of rape, incest, or medical emergency.) But its impact could still be huge, abortion rights groups say. Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas and Planned Parenthood of San Antonio are the only two affiliates of the organization that now receive Title X funding.
This shows how deeply honest President Trump is in his pledge to those of us in the pro-life community.
Title X funding does not pay for abortions, because that is barred under federal law, but it does fund birth control, cancer screenings and both tests and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases.

Of course, the wild card here is this: If Bannon is eventually ousted, does he train Breitbart's sights on Trump? There's some truth to Trump's rejection of the idea that Bannon wasn't brought in to help him shift his strategy.
