Trump administration releases Title X rule restricting abortion clinic funding
February 25, 2019 / Tina Reed
The Trump administration released a final rule on Friday which revises regulations around the Title X family planning program to block funding to groups that provide abortion referrals. Largely seen as a direct attack on Planned Parenthood, the largest reproductive health and abortion provider in the U.S., the final rule requires providers that receive Title X funding to maintain "physical and financial separation" from an abortion provider. Organizations that receive federal funding were already prohibited from using those funds to fund abortion services.
