The states just obtained a restoration of freedoms from the federal government, and we are liking it! What they just passed will tick off a lot of ‘vagina hat wearers’. Check it.

The House of Representatives voted Thursday to rescind an Obama administration regulation blocking states from defunding Planned Parenthood.
TheBlaze previously reported that in the last days of former President Barack Obama’s administration, the Department of Health and Human Services issued a regulation restricting the ability of states to block “specific types of providers,” such as Planned Parenthood, from receiving Title X funds “based on reasons unrelated to their ability to provide required services in an effective manner.”
At the time, HHS said the rule would increase access to family planning services. Opponents of the regulation argued that it took away a state’s ability to decide where Title X funds are best spent.
The House voted Thursday to overturn the regulation, 230-188.
Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.), who introduced the legislation, said in remarks on the House floor that “while I am unapologetically pro-life, you don’t have to be in order to support this resolution. You just have to believe in the Tenth Amendment.”
