Trump’s Title X “Gag Rule” Protects Patients from Abortions

Warren Albrecht | United States

President Trump’s so-called Title X gag rule of medical staff from family planning clinics does nothing more than reduce abortion money. Planned Parenthood receives almost $60 million in Title X grant money. The mainstream media headlines are always about Planned Parenthood and the catastrophe if one clinic closes.

Today, the media testimony in support of Title X is discussed as women’s health. However, Title X is not designed for that result.

The Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services oversees Title X activities and monies. All arguments against the recent Title X rule by the Trump Administration is about the interpretation of the “abortion” section of Title X.  Section 1008 of the Family Planning and Population Research Act reads, “None of the funds appropriated under this title shall be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning.”

If the world is to collapse because of overpopulation, as was the concern of President Nixon and John D Rockefeller III, then Title X would be the single most important federal funding plan in the history of the world. Today, Title X is continually fought over as a money machine for abortion referrals.

Justice Thomas Reveals a History of Population Control

Dr. Warren Albrecht | United States

In a 20 page concurring opinion in the recent Box v. Planned Parenthood, Justice Clarence Thomas describes a modern population control doctrine where Planned Parenthood would lead modern-day eugenics providing abortion exclusively because of the sex or race of the baby or non-lethal disabilities such as Down’s Syndrome.

Trump’s Fetal Tissue Ban Makes Good Business Sense

Dr. Warren Albrecht | United States

President Donald Trump led his administration to ban fetal tissue use in research. Both the Washington Post and New York Times immediately pointed to research from HIV to Parkinson’s as possibly being “devastated”.

“The ban on fetal tissue research is akin to a ban on hope for millions of Americans suffering from life-threatening and debilitating diseases. It will also severely impact the National Institutes of Health, universities and other researchers, who will lose key funding for their laboratories and their vital work.”

It is documented well in the book Science Left Behind that, from Bill Clinton to Obama, politicians have been trying to get around the issue of stem cell research. Originally, the issue surrounded embryos, and Congress restricted any money directly involved in their destruction. Dr. James Thomson, at the University of Wisconsin in 1998, isolated Human Embryonic Stem (hESC) cells. These cells are essentially origin cells. They can differentiate into any cell from the body. The potential for curing or treating diseases may be infinite. Dr. Thomson was funded through the Geron Corporation and Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundations. Essentially no federal government funds were used. Stem cells derived from the different tissues of a fetus became the next political battleground.

Expect the Democrats to Exploit Obamacare’s Failures

Warren Albrecht | United States

In a telephone survey done by Monmouth University, 27% of those polled said that they or a household family member had avoided medical care because of cost. 20% of adults said that over the last 10 years, they did not pursue other jobs or forms of work due to concerns over losing medical insurance. In a piece by The Hill reviewing the poll, the writer discusses views of supporters and critics of Medicare for All but does not tackle the specifics.

Proponents of Medicare for All say that reducing this “job lock,” or the need to stay in a job to keep the employer-provided health insurance, is a benefit of government-run insurance. Opponents say people often like their employer-sponsored coverage and do not want to be forced to give it up.

You can see the narrative forming. The Democrats will push Medicare for All, essentially code for universal healthcare, because people are still having problems. The failure of Obamacare is not to be mentioned. Free market ideas thrown to the side in 2009 are not being evaluated by the press. Recent polls that show Obamacare’s failures will be used by the Democratic Presidential candidates throughout their campaigns in an attempt to push for Medicare for All.
