Planned Parenthood Rejects Trump’s New Family Planning Rules

On Monday, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced it would begin implementing President Trump’s new Title X rules that require that entities receiving Title X family planning grant money must physically and financially separate their family planning services from those that provide or refer for abortions.

Enforcing these rules would cut nearly $60 million from Planned Parenthood’s budget. That hasn’t stopped the abortion giant from defiantly rejecting any future Title X funding, using its own “emergency fund” to continue performing and referring abortions. Planned Parenthood’s most recent annual report shows the organization received nearly a billion dollars in annual private revenue and contributions, and it will continue to receive more than $500 million from taxpayers even without the Title X money.

Incidentally, one day after HHS’s announcement, Planned Parenthood’s board terminated the employment of its president, Dr. Leana Wen, citing that the organization needs a more aggressive leader.
