(Worthy News) - Planned Parenthood is set to lose $60 million in the coming days, because of a Trump administration rule forbidding federal funds going to any family planning programs that refer patients for abortion.
The nation's largest abortion provider has been in the Title X program for decades and receives almost $60 million in funding from the program each year.
Planned Parenthood said Wednesday it will withdraw from the program by the close of business on Monday, Aug. 19, unless the full 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco halts the new rules. The appeals court is weighing a lawsuit by Planned Parenthood and others to overturn the rules. The same panel of judges in July allowed the administration to go ahead with enforcement.
