Trump Blocks Funds for Abortion Providers

It's good news for Pro-Lifers....The Trump administration filed a proposal on Friday to block facilities from receiving federal dollars for family planning if they are housed in the same building with organizations that provide abortions like Planned Parenthood. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said that the proposal was being filed with the Office of Management and Budget in order to "ensure compliance" with laws that prohibit federal funds from going toward abortions. The taxpayer dollars the federal government spends on family planning services, including birth control, STD testing and cancer screenings will not be cut. However, this proposed rule change will drop a requirement for abortion counseling. After a time of public comment, HHS can make a final decision on the rule.
