Trump Abortion Rule Forces Planned Parenthood to Forgo $60M

Major injury inflicted to the largest abortion provider in the nation, one that is funded by taxpayers.

According to the Washington Examiner:

Planned Parenthood will be foregoingas much as $60 million annually from a federal family planning program that will carry new anti-abortion rules.

“Planned Parenthood is still open. We are continuing to fight this rule in court,” said Alexis McGill Johnson, acting president of Planned Parenthood,said in a call with reporters Monday. She said the organization would do everything it could to make sure that clinics could stay open.

The Trump administration is giving healthcare providers until midnight to comply with a new rule that says organizations that accept federal family planning grants cannot directly provide patients with an abortion referral. Critics of the rule call it a “gag rule” because they say the government is forcing them to keep information from patients.

“We do consider ourselves being forced out of the Title X program because we cannot comply with the gag rule,” McGill Johnson said, calling the rule “dangerous” and “unethical.”

  1. Let me see. These despicable human beings employed at Planned Parenthood have jobs and lives because their parents decided to NOT kill them. Oh brother. That is one conflicted existence.

    • John,

      Checked out the link — and saw the Wiki bio of the Acting President of Planned Parenthood Alexis McGill Johnson…. it has this line…

      “On July 16, 2019, McGill Johnson was announced as Planned Parenthood’s acting president after the termination of Leana Wen.”

      The word choice in that sentence made me laugh!

      • I didn’t notice it. I noticed the date this time. Wen lasted just one year.

        From 2006 to 2018 the President
        was Cecile Richards. She was daughter of Ann Richards who was Governor of Texas. A Democrat.

        • Sorry — My wife says I am too cryptic…. The prior President was ‘terminated’… of course in a manner different from the fetuses that PP goes after.

  2. But.
    When you are young & rather poor, getting an annual exam and real birth control, PP charges you per your paycheck amount.
    Yes. I had to walk past abortion protesters to get in, but I never ever had an abortion, (as fake birth control).
