Trump proposes federal funding curbs on US abortion clinics

May 19, 2018 by

from BBC News:

The Trump administration has issued a proposal to cut federal funding for organisations that offer or mention abortion to their patients.

One such organisation, Planned Parenthood, said the proposal was “dangerous” and “outrageous” and would “have devastating consequences”.

Anti-abortion activists thanked US President Donald Trump for “delivering on a key promise”.

The plan will be reviewed by the White House Office of Management and Budget.

A timeline and details of the Department and Health and Human Services proposal were not immediately available.

What will the change mean?

Clinics that receive federal money from a family planning programme known as Title X will be banned from referring clients for abortion, discussing abortion with patients, or sharing space with abortion providers.
