Trump lets states block some Planned Parenthood money

Trump lets states block some Planned Parenthood money

A Republican-led Congress passed the measure last month with Vice President Mike Pence casting a tie-breaking vote.

Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser, who attended the signing ceremony, said in a statement that the signing represented the latest example of Trump's delivering on his promise to stop abortions from being performed in the United States.

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. She said the law "simply ensures that states are not forced to fund an abortion business with taxpayer dollars". While this move may have Trump's conservative base and GOP colleagues cheering, the fact is that it very well could have lasting negative effects on women's ability to access a huge range of crucial reproductive health care and family planning service that extend far beyond abortion. "Joni Ernst", as well as Trump and Pence.

Sens. Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal say they expect another attack on the organization.

"President Trump is expressing the sentiment many of us feel about Planned Parenthood receiving our tax dollars to assault the souls and sensibilities of our children". No federal funding may be used for abortion services. "Their leadership reflects the truth that women largely support stopping taxpayer funding of the abortion industry and redirecting funds to centers that offer real health care".

Planned Parenthood Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens warned the new resolution would deny as many as four million people access to family planning services. In recent years, at least 12 states have cut money for Planned Parenthood, some in the wake of various scandals uncovered regarding the country's No. 1 abortion provider.

"With a pro-life president in the White House and pro-life majorities in the House and Senate, we will continue to work together this year to undo the damage done by the Obama administration", the women write.

The rule stipulated health providers offering those services would receive the funds regardless of whether they also perform abortions.

Planned Parenthood, of course, declined.

One of President Barack Obama's last acts was to sign a rule that helped Planned Parenthood.

An worldwide group of musicians, including Foo Fighters, John Legend, Bjork, Bon Iver, and Mary J. Blige, are putting together a compilation series of seven-inch vinyl records called "7 inches for Planned Parenthood" to raise funds. According to Planned Parenthood, Title X allowed health centers to provide 800,000 Pap tests, one million breast exams, and six million tests for sexually transmitted infections-all in 2015 alone.

Arizona gets three Title X grants a year. President Trump's assault on Title X will likely have heartbreaking impacts for thousands of vulnerable families who will lose access to lifesaving preventive care.
