Trump To Bar Family Planning Clinics From Abortion Referrals

  • Chicago. Under the new rule posted Friday by the federal Department of Health and Human Services Office of Population Affairs any organization that provides or refers patients for abortion

Planned Parenthood stands to lose around $60 million in federal funding under a new rule issued by the Trump administration.

The Trump administration released their final Title X rule regarding federal funds and subsidies Friday; issuing new guidelines that redirects taxpayer dollars away from specific abortion providers.

Such counseling is simply no longer required.

The rule is set to take effect in 60 days.

Wen suggested that the group would consider pulling out of Title X if the rules stay in place.

On Friday, anti-abortion and religious groups applauded the move and praised the Trump administration for keeping a campaign promise. At FQHC's women benefit from better regulatory oversight, a wider range of services, and more life-affirming options.

"There are a number of options out there that can take up the banner", said McClusky, with the March for Life.

"We thank President Trump for taking decisive action to disentangle taxpayers from the big abortion industry led by Planned Parenthood", SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said. Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, said that the "finalized "protect life rule" draws a bright line between abortion and family planning programs".

"The Title X program was not meant to be a slush fund for abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood", Dannensfelser said.

Planned Parenthood President Leana Wen called the rule "unconscionable and unethical".

The administration has implemented a similar rule - nicknamed the "Mexico City gag rule" - for grantees of US foreign aid that prevents organizations that get those funds from referring, providing or discussing abortion with patients. It disburses portions to each of its 18 owner-operated health care centers.

"Every woman should be able to access reproductive health care when and where she needs it", Mills said.

Pelosi went on to say, "This outrageous assault on the health care of vulnerable and under-served women and families would choke off their access to affordable contraception, critical health information and preventive health care, gravely undermining the health and strength of America". We will always be here for our patients. By law, the family planning program does not pay for abortions.

"It is unfathomable that anyone would want to prevent health care providers from giving their patients referrals to other safe, quality health care providers", Ragsdale said.

Referrals for abortion for emergency care, such as if a woman has an ectopic pregnancy - in which the fertilized egg implants outside the uterus and threaten her life - are also allowed.

Last year, as attorney general, Mills joined states across the country in a lawsuit attempting to block the Trump administration from making such changes to Title X.

"This is nothing less than an all-out attack on Americans' health and rights, and on health care providers' ability to do their jobs", tweeted Sen.

"I am grateful that the Trump administration has affirmed human life and dignity with this pro-child rule", Smith said in a February 22 statement.

One of the 2020 presidential hopefuls, Sen.

Title X provides $286 million in funding for programs that provide services like birth control, screening for breast cancer and cervical cancer and screening and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases. This is both outrageous and risky. "We should not be walking back from that progress". "These new rules are risky and unnecessary, and will prevent millions of Americans from obtaining the care they need and deserve".

Citing that 1 in 5 Title X recipients "are adolescents", the fact sheet states that the rule requires documentation that providers have tried to "meaningfully encourage" parent/child communication in family planning decisions.

"If the official published rule is as damaging as today's draft final version", Coleman said, her group "will be prepared to challenge the Trump administration to protect the family planning safety net for the millions of people who rely on it".
