Trump Cuts Funding To Teen Pregnancy Programs, The Left Goes Wild


Created by President Obama in 2010, the Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) program funded millions of organizations who taught children between the ages of 10 and 19-years-old how to avoid pregnancy through the use of contraceptives, doing little to prevent premarital sex.

Though the program was set to end in 2020, which would have cost an extra $200 million in funding initiatives across 39 states, the HHS informed the grant recipients that the funding will stop on June 30, 2018.

One such recipient was the Baltimore City Health Department, whose Democratic-run city boasted a pregnancy rate three times higher than the national average. Over the next two years, the city would receive $3.5 million in grant funding.

"There was no communication about the reason. The notice of the award just stated that instead of a five-year grant, it is now a three-year grant," said Baltimore City Health Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen. "We don’t have another way to fill this deficit. This will leave a huge hole in our ability to deliver health education."
