Planned Parenthood Attempts to Bully Federal Court Over Title X Funding

http://dailycaller.com/

Planned Parenthood is threatening to formally withdraw from Title X funding by Aug. 19 unless a federal court intervenes.

Planned Parenthood officials petitioned for a stay against the Trump administration’s new Title X rules in a letter to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, NPR reported.

Planned Parenthood said will pull out of the family planning program unless the court intervenes, the publication reports.

“It means that some people will not be able to afford the care; it means that some people will have to make a decision as to whether or not they have the time to wait in line,” acting Planned Parenthood President Alexis McGill Johnson said according to NPR. “It certainly means that there will be, potentially, a delay in care — or they will decide to forgo the care altogether.”

The Trump administration declared in July that taxpayer-funded clinics must stop referring women for abortions effective immediately.

Family planning clinics that refer women for abortions will be stripped of their Title X funding, according to a measure President Donald Trump’s administration instigated, CBS News reported.

“Imagine if you show up as a patient to a health center and the doctor’s only ability is to refer you to prenatal care, and you may have already decided that you want to have an abortion,” McGill Johnson said, according to NPR. “Federal regulations will ban that doctor from actually giving you advice and referring you to abortion.”

Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser praised the Trump administration for the move in July.

“We thank President Trump and Secretary Azar for acting decisively to stop taxpayer funding of the abortion industry, as willed by the American people,” Dannenfelser said. “A strong majority of Americans have consistently voiced their opposition to taxpayer funding of abortion – it is even unpopular among Democrats and self-described pro-choice Americans.”
