President Donald Trump has been known to invite the media in to events where he is signing a bill regarding new laws or regulations. Apparently, he decided to do the opposite when signing a bill that will allow states to withhold federal funds from Planned Parenthood.

This bill directly disputes a Health and Human Service rule, which was put in place by the Obama Administration last year.  It literally prevented states from defunding Planned Parenthood and other organizations that are like it.  This is a major slap in the face to the fight to keep the healthcare organization open.

One thing to note is Trump’s previous feelings towards Planned Parenthood and abortions.  He has publicly stated his feelings towards abortion, saying, “As far as Planned Parenthood is concerned, I’m pro-life. I’m totally against abortion, having to do with Planned Parenthood.” But yet he has made the decision to defund programs that provide those services.

For many, this decision by Trump may not be a surprise regardless of what he has stated in the past. History has shown he has a habit of contradicting himself.
