Trump's Abortion 'Gag Rule' Met With First Legal Challenge

In fact, - which do not provide abortions - provide more comprehensive health care services than those offered by Planned Parenthood. It also eliminates a "requirement that Title X providers offer abortion counseling and referral".
Planned Parenthood of IL will no longer take federal money from the Title X family-planning program if the rule goes into effect in two months, officials said.
A federal judge ruled against the objections from Planned Parenthood against a Missouri law that is keeping them from re-opening their abortion services in Columbia. Clinics, including Planned Parenthood, that received funding in September will run out at the end of next month and the new cycle is set to start April 1.
A federal judge in the Western District of Missouri ruled Friday that Missouri state abortion restrictions were not "undue burdens" and held that a Planned Parenthood (PP) in the state can not resume providing abortions.
"It effectively dismantles Title X, forces doctors to lie and forbids them from referring their patients for abortion, and prevents women from being able to access Planned Parenthood's services", she said.
On Friday, the Trump administration released a final draft of rules for the Title X program, which supports birth control, cancer screenings and other medical needs for some 4 million low-income women and families nationwide, including almost 100,000 in the Garden State.
Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, thanked President Trump and HHS Secretary Alex Azar for guaranteeing Title X "is truly about funding family planning, not abortion".
This rule also violates a provision from Congress saying all pregnancy counseling provided using Title X funding must be "non-directive" and not push patients to one option or another. He also blasted the regulation for "transparently and arbitrarily" targeting Planned Parenthood.
Southern Baptist ethicist Russell Moore expressed gratitude for the administration's action "that states unequivocally that family planning does not include abortion". Released by the Health and Human Services Department (HHS), the revision would prohibit those clinics from referring women to other clinics to get abortions.
That's why over 100 physician and public health groups oppose this gag rule, including the American Medical Association, the American Nurses Association. And abortions must now be performed in a separate facility.
"This community could not absorb the kind of patient volume that we're talking about".
"Although the USCCB continues to have strong objections to government promotion and funding of contraceptives, we have long supported enforcement of the abortion funding restrictions in Title X, and we are pleased to see that the administration has taken seriously its obligation to enforce those restrictions", he added.
But there is no question, she said, that "the underlying scope of [the Title X program] has changed" since 1991. "This rule, if implemented, will mean that health clinics that serve so many OR women and families around our state may have to close".
In July, Gov. Kate Brown threatened to pull the state out of the Title X program should the rule go into effect. Rosenblum was among 19 attorneys general who wrote a friend-of-the-court brief challenging the gag rule in May 2018.
