House Democrats move to defund Trump administration rule targeting Planned Parenthood

breaking us news

(Worthy News) - House Democrats moved Monday to block the Trump administration from cutting off family-planning grants for medical facilities such as Planned Parenthood that also provide and refer to abortions.

"It's going to save lives, it's going to keep the Trump administration from shutting the doors of Planned Parenthood, which they have been trying to do from day one," Rep. Lois Frankel, D-Fla., said of the Democratic proposal in a call with Planned Parenthood Monday.

In the budget draft House Democrats released Monday, lawmakers stipulated that grants known as Title X could not be used to go toward paying for the Trump administration's new restrictions, which had been set to go into effect Friday. The budget faces an uphill battle in the Senate, which is controlled by Republicans who support cutting off federal funding to Planned Parenthood. Even if it were to pass the Senate, it would be vetoed by President Trump. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
