Oregon Leads Fight Against Trump Anti-Abortion 'Gag Rule'

California files suit to block Trump administration’s abortion ‘gag rule’ in family planning program

New York Attorney General Letitia James announced that the state is one of 21 to file a lawsuit against President Donald Trump's administration new measure that restricts access to abortion and other reproductive health services. Washington officials said last week that they plan to sue.

He said the costs of the new rule for the Golden State "would be staggering". Prior to the ruling, federal law barred Title X grant recipients from using funds to facilitate abortions.

The Title X final rule imposes changes created to exclude Planned Parenthood and other family planning providers that offer abortion services from the Title X program.

The state attorney general estimated that the potential gross savings from preventing what he called "unintended pregnancies in California" was more than $1.3 billion annually. As a result, many fear, these clinics that serve approximately 4 million people a year may be forced to close their doors.

A coalition of 21 State AttorneysGeneral announced that they will be challenging the constitutionality of the Trump administration's new "gag rule" which alters the Title X family planning program.

"Unfortunately, I think this is just another example of Attorney General Becerra really just trying to jockey for position for higher office", Keller said of the lawsuit.

"Contrary to pro-abortion misinformation, the Protect Life Rule does not cut Title X funding by a single dime - it simply enforces the existing statute that draws a bright line of separation between abortion and family planning. Neither is a good or fair option for women and families who often have no other access to medical care", Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum said. Critics decried the policy as a "gag rule", while the president's conservative base cheered it. The Title X program has become a battlefront in the USA fight over reproductive rights, with Democrats rallying to protect abortion rights against President Trump and Republicans who have made gains curtailing access to the procedure in this administration and in state legislatures in recent years.

Tomorrow, there will be a similar lawsuit filed in OR by that state joined by about twenty other states.

"CT is prepared to join our sister states in legal action to block the Trump administration from pushing a politically-motivated, anti-choice agenda on millions of individuals nationwide", he said. "Consistent with the statutory requirement that no funds may be expended where abortion is a method of family planning, this regulation no longer requires, and affirmatively prohibits, referral for abortion as a method of family planning". After touring the facility, Chris joined Planned Parenthood of Northern New England staff to address the effect the rule change is having on health centers and urged the Trump Administration to reverse their decision. "We'll fight this attack on women's health in court". Planned Parenthood receives about $60 million from the program.

Today Congressman Chris Pappas visited the Planned Parenthood Health Center in Exeter to hear from staff about how the Trump Administration's Title X rule change is impacting their facility and Planned Parenthood Health Centers across the country.
