White House press secretary Sean Spicer opened up his daily briefing with reporters by announcing that President Donald Trump has just signed into law a bill that overturns a previous rule put in place over at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) by President Obama.
The rule prevented states from blocking funding to Planned Parenthood and other similar groups.
“The president has restored respect to states…”-WH Press Secretary Sean Spicer
As expected, the bill sailed through in the Republican-heavy House, but had some difficulties in the Senate, as Vice-President Mike Pence had to cast the 51st and deciding vote in favor of the bill.
Sen.Murkowski (R-AK) was the sole Republican to oppose the pro-life piece of legislation.
