Federal Changes to Funding of Family Planning Spark Outrage in NJ

Planned Parenthood of IL says it will continue providing abortion referrals despite the risk of losing millions of dollars in federal funding under a new rule enacted by the Trump administration.

But conservative groups argue that since many Planned Parenthood affiliates receiving Title X support also provide abortions, the federal family planning money could be improperly commingled with funds used for the procedure.

Clinic staff would still be permitted to discuss abortion with clients, but it would no longer be required. Ferguson is planning to bring his case in the federal district court for the Eastern district of Washington, and he said he expects that other organizations will sue as well, including the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association (NFPRHA).

In Maine, the rule affects Maine Family Planning and Planned Parenthood, both of which provide a full range of family planning services as well as other health care screenings at numerous facilities across the state.

As it seeks to hobble Planned Parenthood, the administration a year ago elevated natural family planning and abstinence counseling, which are less reliable than other family planning methods, to be Title X funding priorities. Within the state, 24 of Planned Parenthood's 28 health centers would be impacted by the rule.

While federal law already bars the money from being used for abortion services, the regulatory changes outlined by the Department of Health and Human Services last week are created to strengthen this barrier through physical and operational changes at facilities that receive Title X funding. ". Reproductive health care is health care, and health care is a human right".

Gov. J.B. Pritzker is one of nine Democratic governors who sent the department a letter Tuesday saying they may take legal action if the rule stands.

The Trump administration's new rule to eradicate family planning funds for Planned Parenthood and other organizations that perform or promote abortions received high marks from pro-life leaders. Tong's office could not say if there were other state health centers that receive Title X money.

Planned Parenthood Great Plains CEO Dr. Brandon Hill criticized the ruling and said it was the result of politicians ignoring medical facts.

St. Louis has the only Missouri clinic able to provide abortions. "We won't withhold critical information from our patients".

Catherine Glenn Foster, president of Americans United for Life (AUL), commended the new rule.

In addition to the rule requiring separation between Title X funding and programs that offer abortion services, the rule eliminates the requirement of abortion counseling and referral and prohibits referrals for abortions. "This rule will make the shortage even more acute". The court ruled 5-4 in the government's favor, declaring that Title X was unclear when it came to abortion counseling, so the court would defer to the administration on the issue. Repealing the rule change in Congress, or acting at the state level to ensure these services remain available in ME, is essential to protect a full range of family planning and medical services for all women.
