Trump Signs Bill Letting States Block Some Abortion Provider Funding
Republicans argue that cutting Obama's rule lets states decide how they want to distribute Title X funding.
Abortion represents less than 3 percent of services provided at Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest family planning provider, according to the organization. "We should build on the tremendous progress made in this country with expanded access to birth control, instead of enacting policies that take us backward", Planned Parenthood Vice President Dawn Laguens said.
The law signed Thursday by President Trump that allows state's to block federal funds for Planned Parenthood won't affect blue states like CT.
The people understand what this administration is all about, and signing unpopular legislation behind closed doors won't help Trump or his party when voters go to the polls in 2018.
Holt concluded that the law "reverses a rule that was finalized" shortly before President Obama left office.
Speaker Paul Ryan also applauded the signing: "This is a major pro-life victory".
"This puts an end to the outgoing gift that Obama gave the Trump administration", Dannenfelser said.
Thought Planned Parenthood was safe after the Obamacare replacement bill failed to pass last month?
Vice President Mike Pence had to cast the tie-breaking vote when the bill came up in the Senate.
The bill reverses a rule the Obama administration issued late a year ago to protect funding for Planned Parenthood. Dannenfelser told the New York Times that redirecting funding away from organizations that provide abortions is a "winning issue".
Under Obama-era rules crafted by the Department of Health and Human Services, states could not withhold these funds from clinics like Planned Parenthood for any reason other than their ability to provide Title X services, which cover family planning and preventive health measures.
Title X, the federal family planning program established by President Richard Nixon in 1970, subsidizes health care services like contraception, Pap smears and others for 4 million low-income Americans.
"By undoing this regulation, we are acknowledging the importance of life, and listening to the majority of taxpayers who agree that federal funds should not be used for abortion", Lamborn said in a statement. Basically, low-income women in red states are about to lose access to one more health provider.
President Donald Trump is giving states permission to defund Planned Parenthood.
