Trump Pulls the Rug Out from Under Planned Parenthood

President Donald Trump has signed a bill into law that overturns an Obama era rule prohibiting states from defunding from abortion providers like Planned Parenthood.

Late into his second term, President Barack Obama had the Health and Human Services Department finalize a regulation stopping states from withholding federal Title X family-planning funds from abortion providers.

President Trump signed the measure revoking the rule, thus allowing for states to deprive funding from entities like Planned Parenthood.
