Trump Takes Aim At Planned Parenthood In Proposed Abortion Regulation

On Friday, President Donald Trump issued a proposal to restrict health clinics and programs that receive government funding from referring women to receive abortions. The plan is aimed at fulfilling Trump’s campaign pledge to defund Planned Parenthood and comes as Republicans push to energize Trump supporters ahead of November congressional elections. Planned Parenthood’s health centers serve more than 40 percent of patients receiving birth control and other family planning health services subsidized by Title X funds. The organization called it a “gag rule” that would roll back a requirement that medical professionals provide information about abortions. Groups that oppose abortion said the plan would not ban abortion counseling, but would ensure that taxpayer funding did not support clinics that also perform abortions. The plan will go through a review process run by the White House Office of Management and Budget. This video was produced by YT Wochit News using
