SPRINGDALE, Ark. — Dr. Ronnie Floyd releases the following statement commending the signing of a bill that returns power to the states to withhold Title X federal funds from clinics that provide abortions:
“Every Christian and every person who cares about the life of the unborn should be celebrating today: our nation has taken another step toward ending the daily killing of thousands of children. This week the president signed a bill that overturns a rule coercing individual states to give funds to abortion providers. I commend the members of Congress who pushed forward this resolution and held their ground for Vice President Mike Pence to cast the tie-breaking vote. And I thank the president for keeping his word to not allow abortion to go unchecked under his watch. Let us not stop our work until the God-ordained sanctity of every human life is recognized and protected.”
