Trump administration to try to withhold funds from clinics discussing abortion

The Trump administration's proposal would reverse an Obama administration regulation prohibiting states from withholding Title 10 funds from Planned Parenthood.

The Reagan-era regulations would bar any family planning entity that performs or promotes abortion from receiving Title X Family Planning Program funding.

Technically, federal funding can't go to abortions - but women's health organizations worked around that provision since the 1970s by formally referring patients to abortionists, who are often located within the same clinic walls, the Weekly Standard reported.

"Reinstating President Ronald Reagan's Title X regulations is sorely needed to bring the program into clear alignment with the statutory requirement stating, 'None of the funds appropriated under this title shall be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning.' Abortion is not family planning and the law recognizes that", read the letter.

The Arrow-verse Is Finally Embracing Batman's Mythos By Introducing Batwoman
While we don't know much about how she will make her debut, Batwoman's arrival in the Arrowverse is huge news. The modern version, Kate Kane, was reintroduced in 2006 and is of Jewish descent and a lesbian.

A rep for Planned Parenthood could not be immediately reached for comment on Thursday night. The Republican-led Congress has unsuccessfully tried to deny federal funds to Planned Parenthood, and the Trump administration has vowed to religious and social conservatives that it would keep up the effort.

Abortion opponents say a taxpayer-funded family planning program should have no connection whatsoever to abortion.

The administration's plan would also require programs and clinics to document their compliance with state reporting laws if they encounter potential victims of sexual assault, incest, or rape in their program activities.

Anti-abortion advocates were particularly frustrated when Congress passed a spending bill earlier this year that left out a measure defunding Planned Parenthood after the GOP and Democrats negotiated a compromise to avoid a government shutdown.

There's a fingerprint sensor on the back and the phone also comes with a P2i water-resistance and dust resistance certification. Under the hood, the smartphone runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 Octa-core chipset, which is based on 14nm FinFET technology.

Anti-abortion groups applauded the step on Thursday night.

Even apart from that, much of the hundreds of millions in annual federal money Planned Parenthood gets comes from Medicaid, which would not be affected by the rule change.

Signatories of the letter included Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser, FRC President Tony Perkins, Liberty Council Founder and Chairman Mat Staver, Live Action President Lila Rose, Priests for Life National Director Fr. "This is a major victory which will energize the grassroots as we head into the critical midterm elections". "Federal health policy should be evidence-based and produced with the best interests of patients in mind".
