Trump poised to unveil policy cutting funds for abortion providers


(Worthy News) - The Trump administration is poised to roll out a new policy that would place additional restrictions on Planned Parenthood and other reproductive health organizations administering abortions, a new report says.

The new policy, set to be unveiled Friday, will prohibit Planned Parenthood and other organizations from performing or mentioning abortions at facilities that accept federal family planning funding, two White House officials and others told the New York Times.

Conservative activists and GOP members of Congress have urged Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar to crack down on restrictions so organizations cannot perform abortions in facilities that accept federally funded reproductive health services. However, it is already against the law for federal family planning funds to go toward organizations that consider abortion a family planning method. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
