A new triumph over abortion (and Obama’s legacy)

President Donald Trump privately signed a bill on Thursday that allows states to withhold federal money from organizations that provide abortion services, including Planned Parenthood…

The bill, which the usually camera-friendly President signed without any media present, reverses an Obama-era regulation that prohibited states from withholding money from facilities that perform abortions, arguing that many of these facilities also provide other family planning and medical services…

The signing comes weeks after Vice President Mike Pence, a social conservative…cast the tie-breaking vote in the Senate after two Republicans opposed the measure…

House Speaker Paul Ryan called the signing a “a major pro-life victory.”
