Trump Administration Gives Family Planning Grant to Anti-Abortion Group

 The Trump administration took an important step on Friday in its push to restrict access to abortion and contraception, announcing that it would give as much as $5.1 million in family planning funds to a nonprofit organization funded by allies of the Catholic Church.

The grant from the Department of Health and Human Services went to the Obria Group, a Southern California-based nonprofit that describes itself as being “led by God” and that aims to siphon patients — and money — away from Planned Parenthood.

The grant to Obria, which includes $1.7 million in the first year and the prospect of that amount in each of the next two years, represents a fraction of the total amount of family planning money awarded by the department on Friday. But both supporters and opponents of abortion rights cast it as a potentially significant move to try to defund medical clinics that provide abortions, such as those affiliated with Planned Parenthood….

Obia was founded by Kathleen Eaton (now Kathleen Eaton Bravo), who was one of our speakers at the 2011 Walk for Life West Coast. Bless her!

The Times also quotes Marjorie Dannenfelser, the president of the Susan B. Anthony List, calling Mr. Trump as “the most pro-life president in our nation’s history.” Bless him too!
