Three months after leaving office and Mr. Obama’s legacy is going to pieces. At best, it’s a void. At worst, it’s a list of failures.
For a man as self-focused as Barack Obama, the election of President Trump and the subsequent demolishing of what legacy Obama had must be devastating. Pick an area of major policy focus by Obama, and you’ll either see programs that are failing or are about to be cancelled or replaced.
Another part of the Obama legacy crashed when “Trump signed a bill on Thursday that permits states to voluntarily withhold funds from abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood. This bill effectively overturns the Obama-era bill doing the opposite, preventing states from denying funds to ‘family planning’ services.”
As an aside, the term “family planning” in the sense it is used here is absurd. Surely no woman “plans” to get pregnant just to have an abortion. So the awful choice to abort a pregnancy is a result of a lack of planning … or of self-control, or proper choices, or a decadent culture, or a lot of other things.
Naturally, Planned Parenthood is having a fit – which, actually, is a good sign things are looking up.
The Federalist Papers report that “‘Planned Parenthood strongly opposes President Trump’s willingness to undermine millions of women’s access to birth control through the Title X family planning program,’ she said. ‘Four million people depend on the Title X family planning program, and by signing this bill, President Trump disregards their health and well-being.'”
Actually, the opposite is true. There is nothing about having an abortion that promotes the health of the mother except in very rare cases where the pregnancy has put her life in danger. And it certainly does nothing positive for the “health and well-being” of the unborn child.
It is tragic enough to live in a culture with such a callous attitude toward human life, and the abortion industry certainly represents part of that. The least we could ask of our government is that it not promote that culture. President Trump just took a step in that direction. Another reason to be proud of our new president!
I’m sure Barack is hiding somewhere, just weeping, knowing that soon, all of his legacies will be obsolete!
