After tweeting a headline that Trump was open to funding Planned Parenthood, a couple of people took issue with the original headline because they thought it was misleading. Therefore, I adjusted the headline to be more specific as to what Donald Trump said about de-funding Planned Parenthood. The bottom line is that Donald Trump has said that he is for de-funding Planned Parenthood for abortions, and would even let the government shutdown to do so. Which we reported on here at CVP. Trump has stated that he is pro-life except in cases of rape, incest, or the health of the mother. In a CNN interview, Trump said he is willing to look into funding certain aspects of Planned Parenthood that would help women.
I personally don’t want one of my taxpayer dollars to go to Planned Parenthood. I feel that it would be too easy to funnel the money for abortions. I don’t trust Planned Parenthood to disperse our money for the “healthcare” of women. Why on earth would I trust an agency that has aborted babies and sold their body parts? I don’t know why Donald Trump would be open to trusting Planned Parenthood. LifeNews.com headlined with:
It will be up to the people to decide if Donald Trump is their man. Here’s the CNN interview that Trump did.
During an interview with CNN Tuesday morning, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump stated that he was open to the idea of continuing to fund Planned Parenthood with federal tax dollars.
“The problem that I have with Planned Parenthood is the abortion situation. It is like an abortion factory, frankly,” Trump said. “And you can’t have it. And you just shouldn’t be funding it. That should not be funded by the government, and I feel strongly about that.”
When pressed on non-abortion services Planned Parenthood allegedly provides, Trump said, “What I would do when the time came, I’d look at the individual things they do, and maybe some of the individual things they do are good. I know a lot of the things are bad. But certainly the abortion aspect of it should not be funded by government, absolutely.”
Trump continued, “I would look at the good aspects of [Planned Parenthood], and I would also look, because I’m sure they do some things properly and good and that are good for women, and I would look at that, and I would look at other aspects also. But we have to take care of women.”
In other words Trump is open to a status quo many conservatives find unacceptable and immoral; also a typical federal government shell game to skirt around the law. If you give Planned Parenthood money for these so-called “other things,” the abortion provider can shift money from those “other things” to abortion.
Any money given to Planned Parenthood funds abortion. Period.
Trump also made clear that he was in favor of the rape, incest, and life of the mother exceptions for abortion.
