WASHINGTON – Clinics that perform abortions or refer patients to places that would lose federal funding under a new Trump management rule that targets Planned Parenthood, according to three government officials
The rule that should be The am Friday announced presidential candidate is one of the top priorities of President Trump to ban the abortion rights. In this case, money is withheld from institutions or programs promoting abortion or referring patients to a caregiver.
The policy would be a return to a 1988 Ronald Reagan, which demands that abortion services have a "physical separation" and "separate personnel" from other family planning activities. This policy is often referred to as a domestic gag rule because it denied supervisors at institutions that received family planning funds, the provision of information about abortion, or receiving information.
Dawn Laguens, vice president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, called the new proposal "outrageous" and "dangerous."
Politics, she said in a statement released late Thursday, is "designed to make it impossible for millions of patients to get birth control or preventive care from reproductive health professionals like Planned Parenthood, which is forcing doctors and nurses to lie to their patients. It would have devastating consequences in this country. "
Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony List, a group that rejects abortion rights, thanked Mr. Trump in a statement Thursday evening in which she said the move" stimulates "the Conservative voters who will attend inter-congressional elections this autumn.
"We thank President Trump for taking steps to alienate taxpayers from the abortion business," said Ms. Dannenfelser. She said he had "shown a decisive leadership and delivered a key promise for the voters of life who worked so hard to choose him."
Two White House officials and two others reported on the Trump administration on Thursday They announced that they adopted the policy on Friday, a move they intended to draft during an early morning conference call for socially conservative and religious activists , They all talked about the condition of anonymity because they were not allowed to discuss the plans.
A Trump official said the rule would provide Planned Parenthood and other groups receiving federal family planning money with a choice: Seek abortion or lose government funding
The official said the policy would "be a bright line the physical and financial separation "between programs that receive Title X funding and those that require implementation, support, or referrals for abortions.
A Trump Administrator Who made the upcoming proposal said he would neither prohibit nor demand abortion counseling.
Politics could lead to legal challenges, as was the case shortly after it was passed by the Reagan administration. Planned Parenthood and other groups filed lawsuits blocking the rules, and while the 1991 Supreme Court ruled they could get ahead, they were never fully implemented. President Bill Clinton lifted politics in 1994.
Mr. Trump has shown ambivalence about planned parenting and sometimes expressed support for his health-related services other than abortion. His daughter Ivanka Trump, a senior adviser, has urged him not to cut funding for the organization, as many Republicans have suggested, and warned against possible political repercussions.
Mr. Trump will be keynote speaker next week at the "Campaign for Life" gala by Susan B. Anthony List. Ms. Dannenfelser has called Mr. Trump "the pro-life president in the history of our country."
The Trump administration has repeatedly put pressure to impose abortion limits. Upon taking office, Mr. Trump signed a Presidential memorandum introducing and expanding the so-called "Global Gag Rule", which prohibits the funding of organizations around the world offering abortion counseling or referrals.
Trump has also paid special attention to Planned Parenthood, which serves 41 percent of women who receive federally-funded family planning. He signed legislation last year to cut government funds from the group and others who perform abortions.
The law abolished a rule passed in the last days of the Obama administration that effectively banned federal and state governments from funding family planning services related to contraception, sexually transmitted infections, fertility, prenatal care and breast and cervical cancer screening among qualified individuals Healthcare providers – regardless of whether or not they have performed abortions.
Also, physicians have been alarmed by such changes to the federal family planning rules. In a conference call this month, officials from the American College of Physicians and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists said that women's health would harm women's health.
Dr. Hal Lawrence, executive vice president and chief executive of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, said during the conversation, "We do not need the government interfering with the investigation area, and the government should not interfere with what women know and know What kind of options should they get? "
Proponents of abortion rights also argue that the new rules could result in women not receiving reproductive health care at all, leading to more unwanted pregnancies and higher mortality rates. They find that Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups are often the only state-funded health care providers in certain areas of the country, which means that some women in these places are not receiving any medical care under the new policy.
Cecile Richards, former President of Planned Parenthood, wrote in her memoir published last month that during a meeting in January 2017 with Ms. Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, who is also a senior adviser to the president, the couple joined her An Invitation Offered Deal For Their Organization: Stop the provision of abortions in exchange for an increase in federal funds. Mr. Trump admitted several weeks later that he had pushed for such an agreement.
At that time, Planed Parenthood publicly rejected the proposal, saying that he would never agree to a plan that would force him to cease providing women advising on abortions.
