Regardless of the position one holds on abortion, funding at least warrants concern over the fiscal irresponsibility of such a decision. Of course, the fact that a large number of taxpayers take exception with abortion being defined in a list of services as “reproductive health” should be the primary focus. A sting of several of Planned Parenthood’s providers in 2015 showed how the organization profits from the sale of discarded embryos. Moral concerns are only heightened by the cavalier attitude and lack of respect Planned Parenthood shows towards the most innocent of human lives.

To fully strip federal funding to Planned Parenthood, Congress should act to amend Medicaid law to disallow participation in the program by clinics that terminate pregnancies or to share costs with other providers that perform abortions. It could be accomplished by an uncomplicated one-sentence bill. In the meantime, with a pro-life president, Title X funds should be all but fully prohibited from distribution to abortion providers.

It’s time for conservative lawmakers – at the state and federal level – to not just talk conservatively in order to be elected, but to govern conservatively.
