Trump rule cuts reproductive healthcare funds for Title X clinics

This means the clinic needs a physician who could, as a member of a hospital, admit patients to that hospital.

In Albuquerque, Planned Parenthood abortion providers prescribed a two-bill procedure.

A sign is pictured at the entrance to a Planned Parenthood building in NY on August 31, 2015. "We will not stop until abortion is no longer supported with even a penny of taxpayer funds".

Wimes concluded in the decision that "the record does not provide a basis in evidence to approximate the number of women who will forego or postpone surgical abortion incidental to the inoperability of the Columbia Facility". "The doctor simply can't say, 'There's an abortion provider three streets down, turn left'". State Attorney General Gurbir Grewal has also filed a legal challenge to a separate HHS rule change that could also limit women's access to low-priced birth control.

Chris Plante, policy director of the Christian group Family Policy Institute of Washington, called the legal challenge "wrongheaded" and said the new policy "simply returns the Title X regulations back to their original legislative intent: 'None of the funds appropriated under this title shall be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning'". Released by the Health and Human Services Department (HHS), the revision would prohibit those clinics from referring women to other clinics to get abortions.

"Medical providers, no matter what kind of service they perform, must be able to have candid conversations with patients about all options for care, and without fear that if they say the word "abortion" their clinic could lose federal funds", Rosenblum said.

Regulatory changes to the federal program that sustains Planned Parenthood and other women's care providers have sparked serious concerns among healthcare advocates in New Jersey, where residents in 13 of the 21 counties depend on a single, federally funded-clinic for affordable family planning services.

The Trump administration intends to limit the Title X program that provides birth control and other reproductive health services.

The National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association, which represents many providers in the Title X network, as well as the state's Cedar River Clinics, and Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest and Hawaii, announced they will also sue in the same court.

Planned Parenthood affiliates serve about 40 percent of the program's 4 million patients.

Having easy access to women's healthcare enables many to be able to receive the care they may not be able to receive otherwise due to financial reasons, parental reasons or accessibility reasons.

The new regulation was published Friday on an HHS website.

But there is no question, she said, that "the underlying scope of [the Title X program] has changed" since 1991.

Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson said Monday he will sue to challenge President Donald Trump's policy setting up new obstacles for women seeking abortions, calling it "a transparent attack on Planned Parenthood" that would severely impair access to many types of medical care, especially for low-income women in rural areas. It's the first of several legal challenges expected to be announced by Democratic-led states.
