We are living through a remarkable time in history. Almost daily, those in influential positions who once appeared untouchable are falling out of popular favor as their abuses are exposed.
Earlier this month, one particularly corrupt institution was dealt back-to-back blows: Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business.
On Nov. 13, The Hill reported that the FBI may be investigating Planned Parenthood and its associates for the sale of aborted babies’ body parts for profit. It’s the latest development yet in a scandal that began in 2015 with the release of explosive undercover videos.
Those videos showed abortion industry executives haggling over the price of hearts, livers, brains, and kidneys and describing, in chilling detail, their techniques for crushing late-term babies to get the freshest organs.
The Senate Judiciary Committee and the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives spent almost one-and-a-half years conducting a national investigation, reviewing 30,000 pages of documents, and hearing hours of testimony.
They found enough evidence to refer several Planned Parenthood affiliates and tissue procurement companies for potential prosecution. Attorney General Jeff Sessions suggested that if the FBI concurs, charges might be filed.
Then came the second punch.
Just as news of the FBI inquiry broke, the 8th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals declined to revisit its ruling that the state of Arkansas can redirect Medicaid funds away from abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood, which the state is completely justified in doing considering the ongoing baby parts scandal.
These two major breakthroughs would have been inconceivable under the Obama administration, which repeatedly abused federal power to prop up the abortion industry.
President Barack Obama’s aggressively pro-abortion administration put the “bully” in “bully pulpit.” Under Obama, the Justice Department became a tool to harass and intimidate pro-life advocates, labeling them domestic terrorists alongside groups like the Ku Klux Klan.
Instead of investigating Planned Parenthood for the shocking, potentially illegal practices exposed in the videos, pro-abortion Attorney General Loretta Lynch decided to investigate the whistleblowers.
The Obama administration also actively interfered with state efforts to defund Planned Parenthood. Kansas, Tennessee, Indiana, Texas, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina—all these states tried to get taxpayers out of the abortion industry, only to have the federal government bypass local officials to directly award lucrative contracts to Planned Parenthood or threaten to withhold federal Medicaid funds unless they kept tax dollars flowing.
A palpable sense of terror is gripping Planned Parenthood and its camp. Without their old defender-in-chief or the courts to bail them out, they are finally being held accountable.
Right away, Trump signed legislation (H.J. Res. 43) rolling back Obama’s parting gift to the abortion industry.
Trump’s strong commitment to pro-life policies has helped embolden state governors and legislatures. Texas has now applied to reclaim the federal funding it was denied under the last administration. South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster in August successfully defunded Planned Parenthood and requested a waiver from the Trump administration so that the state can do the same with Medicaid, which is where the abortion business gets most of its taxpayer funding.
The next step is for the Trump administration to issue new guidance to the states restoring their freedom to prioritize Medicaid funds the way they believe will best serve their citizens. The administration must be prepared to defend that policy vigorously should the case go to the Supreme Court.
The pro-life majorities in both houses of Congress should also fulfill their promise to redirect half a billion dollars in annual taxpayer funding away from Planned Parenthood using budget reconciliation, where they have the best chance of succeeding.
There are good reasons to hope that for America’s abortion giant, justice is right around the corner.

The longer Planned Parenthood funding is not stopped, the more unborn babies are killed.
#TrumpTrain, thanks be to God.
Hope they and their baby-murdering accomplices will all see justice and get what they deserve.
God has His own mind on these things. Trump, like Cyrus The Great, marches to God’s direction. We all must learn to seek God’s will, as Good for Mankind comes from this. PP ultimately will fail. Pray that it happens quickly.
The abortion of the unborn is the number one issue facing humanity today. The real next step should be for the courts to role back Roe versus Wade and make it illegal to kill unborn baby children. Since Roe versus Wade made abortion legal in America in 1973 close to 60 Million unborn baby children have been slaughtered in America alone. It is time for America and the rest of the world to end this barbaric practice. It truly cries out to Heaven for God’s judgement and wrath. Brothers and Sisters in Christ proclaim the word of Almighty God and end abortion now. Adoption is the loving option. Pray America Pray! Pray Pray Pray!.
They should feel a sense of terror. Many of them are much older, and the thought of the souls of all those babies they tore apart standing in judgment on them after the end of their lives and helping God toss them into the abyess SHOULD strike terror in their hearts. I doubt some have a consicence at all though. I can see the sign: All Hope Lost for Those Who Enter Here.
