California sues Trump administration over Title X

California sues Trump administration over Title X

Attorneys general from Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia and Wisconsin are also joining Oregon's lawsuit.

The lawsuits seek an injunction to prevent the rule from going into effect.

California's attorney general and other Democratic lawmakers are seeking to overturn new obstacles the Trump administration set up for women seeking abortions, including barring taxpayer-funded family planning clinics from making abortion referrals.

"What this new rule means is that providers in OR who receive Title X funding will have to decide whether they will refuse the funding OR "cave" to the requirements of this new rule", Rosenblum said.

The lawsuit is California's 47 legal challenge to the Trump administration and its policies.

The rule also prohibits federally funded family planning clinics from being housed in the same locations as abortion providers.

A multistate suit is expected to be filed on Tuesday in OR, and the state of California filed its own separate court challenge against the federal government in San Francisco on Monday. Opponents call it a "gag rule" because it would ban clinics from referring women for abortions or counseling them on abortion as an option to end pregnancy.

It also would require physical and financial separation between family planning services and abortion services, which would effectively require Planned Parenthood to make considerable changes to its programs, or give up $60 million a year in federal funding. "I will continue to fight back against this administration as they continue to undermine health care for those who need it most". In a statement, Becerra said the rule would deny "patients access to critical health care services and prevents doctors from providing comprehensive and accurate information about medical care". OR has received funding for Title X services in OR since 1970, and Title X clinics are located in nearly every county in Oregon.

When Corden asked Kevin more about it he said, "My youngest daughter Valentina, she is very connected to Nick ". But it turns out that someone in the family is apparently not so happy with the addition of Priyanka Chopra .

Becerra was joined at the Capitol on Monday in announcing the lawsuit by some 20 women lawmakers, including Senate leader Toni Atkins (D-San Diego) and Legislative Women's Caucus Chair Sen.

That new rule could potentially affect thousands of Oregonians, many of them low-income and people of color.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, however, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, said abortion businesses such as Planned Parenthood "have treated the Title X program like their own multimillion-dollar slush fund".

Correction: An earlier version of this story misstated when the new cycle for Title X funding begins.

Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom said the new rule is "an attack on over one million low-income Californians who rely on life-saving screenings and care from providers they trust".

Yet the so-called medical "gag" provision decried by the AMA and others in the medical community could bring the regulation down this time around, according to critics.

"Abortion is neither healthcare nor family planning which is why the Title X program has no business funding it", Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life, said in a statement.
