Watching a movie the other day with my family, my son-in-law yells, “plot twist!” Sure enough, one of the characters did something that changed the course of the story and had lasting effects . . . as a good plot twist is known to do.
The plot twist in the movie is not unlike what happened last week on the pro-life front. However, unlike the movie, what happened will not only change the course of the pro-life story, it’ll save lives!
The Trump administration announced this past Friday that a new “Protect Life Rule” is forthcoming for the Title X Family Planning Program. And, as Brad Mattes, President of the Life Issues Institute and speaker on “Life Issues” notes, the new rule may very well defund Planned Parenthood of up to $60 million of our taxpayer dollars each year,
“This is an historic moment in our decades-long fight to stop taxpayer funding of abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood . . . the Protect Life Rule won’t cut a single dime from family planning. Instead, it will direct tax dollars to Title X centers that do not promote or perform abortions, such as the growing number of community and rural health centers that far outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities.”
To all the “Life Issues” station partners who keep these matters on the forefront in their communities, thank you! Unlike the plot twists which come at the end of a story, the pro-life story continues to unfold and the Protect Life Rule is a significant step in the direction of the happy ending we prayerfully anticipate!
