California Sues Trump Administration for Family Planning ‘Gag Rule’
21 States, D.C. To Sue Trump Administration Over Abortion 'Gag Rule'
06 March, 2019, 19:21
The nation's Democratic attorneys general have repeatedly challenged initiatives of the Trump administration, weighing in on everything from his immigration policy to efforts to fund a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border through an emergency declaration. "This illegal Title X rule denies patients access to critical health care services and prevents doctors from providing comprehensive and accurate information about medical care". OR has received funding for Title X services in OR since 1970, and Title X clinics are located in nearly every county in Oregon.
"As a doctor, I can not imagine withholding information from my patients".
The lawsuits seek an injunction to prevent the rule from going into effect. "Politicians have no business telling me what I can talk to my patients about".
Federally funded family planning clinics were already barred from performing abortions with Title X funds. As a result, many fear, these clinics that serve approximately 4 million people a year may be forced to close their doors.
The administration is seeking to impose what it's calling a "bright line" of physical and financial separation between the provision of family planning and abortion services, effectively requiring Planned Parenthood to drastically alter its operations, or forego an estimated $60 million in annual funding, the Postreported. They either have to withhold information or get pushed out of a program created to bring health care to a low-income population.
"As the only federal program exclusively dedicated to providing low-income patients, including adolescents, with access to family planning and preventative health services and information, Title X plays a vital role in the fabric of America's family planning safety net", the letter said. The funding would instead largely shift to faith-based groups.
King Kong Bundy Passes Away at 61 The superstar proved no matter the stature of opponent or situation, he could entertain at WrestleMania III. Bundy, who weighed in at a whopping 458lbs and towered at 6ft4, began his career with the WWF in 1981.
"Since it began in 1970, Title X has excluded elective abortions from its grant program, reflecting the commitment of the majority of Americans not to have their hard-earned tax dollars subsidize Planned Parenthood and other members of the abortion industry", she said in a statement Monday.
The money instead will be directed to applicants who "do not perform or refer for abortion as a method of family planning".
The Health and Human Services Department has declined to comment, citing the pending lawsuits.
"They are to be expected", he said of the lawsuits being filed by states. In addition, Title X locations can not refer for abortion.
The Hill reported that a separate lawsuit, led by Oregon Democrat Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum and New York Democrat Attorney General Letitia James, will be filed Tuesday. And the Center for Reproductive Rights will get into the legal fight on behalf of Maine Family Planning, which operates 18 clinics throughout the state. Clinics, including those run by Planned Parenthood, that received funding in September will run out at the end of next month and the new cycle is set to start May 1. After the rule was released, Planned Parenthood said it "would be impossible" for it to continue participating in Title X adding that it put providers like Planned Parenthood in an "impossible position".
