Trump Moves Against Planned Parenthood by Signing GOP Measure

17 April 2017, 05:19 | Clarence Schmidt

But Republicans want to see the power to distribute Title X money returned to the states, meaning state governments can choose which providers are funded and which aren't.

It has been illegal for federal dollars to be spent on abortions since the Hyde Amendment was enacted 41 years ago - federal dollars at Planned Parenthood go toward preventative health care, birth control, pregnancy tests, cancer screenings and other women's health services.

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.

Democrats say the legislation, which Trump signed in the Oval Office without media present, is aimed at defunding Planned Parenthood.

By signing the bill, Trump is undoing former President Barack Obama's "parting gift to the abortion industry", Dannenfelser said in a statement.

Trump has taken various positions on Planned Parenthood.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List, said the change will lead to better care for women and girls.

Vice President Mike Pence stepped in to break a tie vote over the repealing of the rule in March. Joni Ernst. Prioritizing funding away from Planned Parenthood to comprehensive health care alternatives is a winning issue.

President Donald Trump signed legislation Thursday that lets states deny federal family-planning money to Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers.

Of the broadcast networks, only one highlighted President Trump's "major blow" to Planned Parenthood state funding on Thursday.

Under the Congressional Review Act, which allows lawmakers to repeal newly minted rules, both the House and Senate had passed a resolution killing Obama's regulation that had protected federal grants for clinics in states wanting to block the funding.

Richards joined three patients and a Planned Parenthood doctor for a roundtable.

"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.

Four million people with low incomes rely on Title X for preventative health care.

The new bill reverses an Obama regulation that stopped states from holding money from such facilities because of the family planning and medical services they also provide.
