    1. The taxpayer.

    2. Once they get the money they can use it as they wish.

    3.Nobody is going to do anything about this. Not President Trump who signed the last spending bill into law that included this money that went to PP and not any other Republican either.

    If it's going to be addressed, it will have to be through other means than the spending bill. There would have to be a way to limit their right to lobby or campaign, or laws that outright protect the rights of the unborn.

    I listened to this speech earlier today and loved it and was encouraged from it! If I caught it right in the beginning he said he was the first President to make a speech at a March for Life convention. When it comes to fighting for protecting the right to life, as Trump would put it, nobodies else even comes close...

    Such a thing cannot be done. We have the 1st Amendment right to do those things.

    We need either a constitutional amendment giving the unborn rights or another Supreme Court ruling against abortion, which would then allow each individual state to decide the issue as they see fit.

    Yes, the First Amendment is not something to mess with, though they would do so against those opposing them. An amendment for the unborn is unlikely, but better recognition of them as sacred human life would go far.

    Trump's appointing so many constitutional judges seems the best approach available. Another five years of doing that would be wonderful. His stance on this against the holocaust of the Left is enough for them to viciously hate him forever.

    Yes, this man has no shame where no shame is right to have. I think the statistic is that no sitting president before him had spoken at the rally. Trump is the first to have the guts to do it and not worry about any political fallout from the Left. Now that's what I call presidential.

    The Supreme Court is 3 Jews, 5 Catholics, and 1 Episcopalian. There currently sits in the Vatican, the most Liberal Socialist/Globalist Interfaith leaning Pope in history. Do not count, on this Supreme Court, to do the Lord's bidding. There is not a bonafide Christian Conservative on the Court.

    Trump admin threatens to revoke federal funding from California over abortion coverage mandate

    "The Health and Human Services Department warned California on Friday that it would cut off some of its federal funding if it continued mandating universal abortion coverage, arguing that doing so violated the conscience rights of all Americans.

    News of the violation notice came on the same day as the March for Life rally, where President Trump made history by becoming the first president to attend the annual gathering of pro-life activists.

    “Once again, President Trump’s administration is delivering on his promise to protect human life and all Americans’ freedom of conscience,” Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar said in a press release.

    Roger Severino, who leads the Office of Civil Rights (OCR), denounced California for "forcing people of goodwill to subsidize the taking of human life." According to HHS, more than 28,000 people in the state were unable to access plans that didn't cover elective abortions.

    HHS argued that the state violated the Weldon Amendment, which blocks federal funding for states that discriminate against providers who refuse to cover abortion. The issue arose after a Catholic order of religious sisters and a nonprofit Christian church complained about the alleged violations.

    "With this Notice," the department said, "OCR requests that California inform OCR, within thirty days, whether California will continue to enforce its requirement that all health plans cover elective abortions, or whether it will agree to take corrective action and remedy the effect of its discriminatory conduct."

    I am absolutely fine with "chipping away" at stopping the agenda of murdering the unborn (AKA "reproductive rights and access to abortion") as the scale leans back toward protecting innocent lives. The bigger the chisel and the stronger the arm that swings the hammer the better!

    The Lord is not limited to merely the values of those within your terms to do His bidding.

    There is a good chance the SCOTUS will have yet another conservative constitutionalist on it within a year or so. Although, I don't count on the SCOTUS making sweeping laws to reverse the trend that has contributed to killing 60 million of our children on their own I expect they will play a major role in helping the scales weight more heavily on the side of Pro-life as respect for the rights to life of the unborn grows.
