'Gag rule' would hurt poor women's health care

'Gag rule' would hurt poor women's health care

In New York, federal Title X funds are granted to the state Health Department and the city nonprofit Public Health Solutions, which distribute them to providers.

As the former chair of Planned Parenthood, candidate Fred Hubbell will work to restore funding to the organization and ensure that every woman is able to receive the coverage and services they need to live healthy lives.

White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway told Fox News that the administration is recognizing "that abortion is not family planning".

Congress allocated approximately $286 million for family planning in 2017. They put countless peoples' health and lives at risk in service of an extreme anti-abortion agenda. Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion business, is responsible for more than 300,000 abortions a year and has been receiving $50-60 million in Title X taxpayer funds annually. We know what happens because that was America just 45 years ago, and is still true in other countries today.

Trump's position on a woman's right to choose has waivered.

Speaking at the annual Susan B. Anthony List awards event in Washington, Mr. Trump said the new proposal under Title X is "historic" by reversing decades of federal policy.

Abortion opponents welcomed the rule change proposal as separating taxpayer funds from the procedure.

These shocking figures should remind Congress that it must end taxpayer funding for abortion once and for all and defund Planned Parenthood now.

Daughter killed in Texas was a 'lifeline,' dad says
She was to return to Pakistan next month to celebrate Eid festival with her family in Karachi's Gulshan-e-Iqbal area'. Cynthia Tisdale , a teacher, was a member of Anchor Bible Baptist Church in Pharr, Texas, her family said.

Although abortion is politically divisive, the USA abortion rate has dropped significantly, from about 29 per 1,000 women of reproductive age in 1980 to about 15 in 2014.

Abortion remains legal, but federal family planning funds can not be used to pay for the procedure. Trump is using that funding as leverage to persuade the clinics to stop providing abortions altogether, apparently betting that they will care more about preserving the other women's health services than he does. With the Trump Administration's new executive order regarding Title X provisos, regulation becomes the key to success.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists said the administration action amounts to an "egregious intrusion" in the doctor-patient relationship and could force doctors to omit "essential, medically accurate information" from counseling sessions with patients.

The National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) [advocacy websites] filed suit earlier this month challenging the proposed cut to Title X funding.

"I can not imagine a scenario in which public health groups would allow this effort to go unchallenged", Marcella said.

Families and individuals can now hope for protection from the predatory practices of abortion-providing grant recipients demonstrably more interested in protecting their ability to make millions of dollars through abortions than they are in protecting the rights and safety of their clients.

If implemented, this rule change would require abortion providers to prove there is a "bright line of physical as well as financial separation" between abortion services and other services.

Four million patients rely on Title X for birth control, cancer screenings, STI testing and treatment, and other critical preventive care. The policy says money distributed under Title X of 1970 must be "physically and financially separate from programs in which abortion is provided or presented as a method of family planning, including programs that refer for abortions and programs that encourage, promote or advocate abortion as a method of family planning".
