Reproductive freedom, along with the sexual health of poor and working class people, is under attack once again as the Trump administration moves to implement a rule that would deny government funding to any facility that provides or refers patients to abortion services.
Planned Parenthood, which provides a broad array of reproductive health services to women and men, also provides abortion services using non-federal funds.
Planned Parenthood, a principal provider of family planning, abortion services and basic preventive care for women, said the plan appears created to target the organization.
Planned Parenthood Vice President Dawn Laguens quickly slammed the proposal with an absurd claim that her abortion chain is the only place women can go for basic health care.
White Home senior adviser Kellyanne Conway instructed Fox Information that the administration is recognizing "that abortion will not be household planning".
Congress allocated approximately $286 million for family planning in 2017. His campaign later walked back the statement, saying that if abortion were ever outlawed, he believed that doctors who perform them should be punished. In the letter, the signers said "we are disgusted" by Trump's treatment of women, and said that on the issue of abortion, Trump "cannot be trusted". "Today, we have kept another promise". And Trump has bragged about groping women without their permission. "A plurality of Americans support President Trump's action to help stop taxpayer funding the big abortion industry led by Planned Parenthood". It says it spent more than $18 million in the 2016 election cycle to defeat Hillary Rodham Clinton and promote a "pro-life Senate". And not a penny of family planning money will be cut under the proposal. President Trump and his administration, meanwhile, have reinstated and issued regulations to restrict federal funding of abortion and abortion rights organizations.
Planned Parenthood is already challenging in court a change the Trump administration made to eligibility criteria for the Title X program which the organization argues would "warp" the mission of the almost half-century-old program.

The protest had been going on for months and turned violent on Tuesday when protestors were not allowed to march up to the plant. The company had filed an application to obtain environmental clearance to expand its plant in the coastal city in February 2018.
The need for consolidation signaled a victory to abortion opponents in Iowa, where the number of Planned Parenthood clinics has declined.
Together, the states will be called Planned Parenthood North Central States and will manage 29 health centers serving more than 114,000 patients across the five states. "Meanwhile, not one dime of Title X funds will be cut, and the low-income women who those funds are meant to help, will receive authentic health care at federally qualified health centers which outnumber abortion centers 20:1".
Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., said the Trump administration "works overtime to find ways to undermine women's access to health care".
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez blasted the administration's move as "a brazen and shameful assault on women, their rights, and their health".
"I can not imagine a scenario in which public health groups would allow this effort to go unchallenged", Marcella said. Family planning programs that do not provide or refer for abortions are free to apply for grants.
Women should be informed of all their options when they seek reproductive health care, including their ability to terminate an unwanted pregnancy.
Deliberate Parenthood can nonetheless obtain Title IX grants if it retains the family-planning cash separate from funds used to pay for abortions.
