WASHINGTON, D.C., March 31, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — After President Trump’s replacement for ObamaCare failed to garner enough votes in the House, President Trump admonished members of his party and told them to "get on board."
Trump lobbied doubters, but in the end, several Republicans refused to vote for his plan. Among them were members of the House Freedom Caucus, who felt the plan didn't go far enough to rid the country of socialized medicine.
Pro-life organizations expressed concerns over loopholes in Trump's healthcare plan that could be used to fund abortion with taxpayer dollars.
It was a tough defeat for the Trump administration within his "honeymoon period" during the first 100 days in office. Politicians on all sides immediately pointed fingers at others...
..."Planned Parenthood needs to be defunded by any means possible and Congress needs to keep their promise to do so," Students for Life president Kristan Hawkins told LifeSiteNews. "This is something many, many Republicans ran on and campaigned on and it needs to be done immediately."
Hawkins believes that those who stand for the sanctity of innocent human life must speak out, and speak out now.
"Pro-lifers should put pressure on their elected officials to keep their promises," she said. "Every day they keep sending checks to Planned Parenthood is another 888 lives lost."
