A new Trump administration rule will cut off Planned Parenthood and other health providers that offer abortion services from hundreds of millions of dollars of federal funding.
Under a regulation issued on Friday, no health-care provider that offers abortion services will be eligible for the federal Title X program, which last year offered $286.5 million in grants that funded family-planning services. Last year, about 4 million people used the program, according to the government.
The rule “prohibits the use of Title X funds to perform, promote, refer for, or support abortion as a method of family planning,” according to a fact sheet published by the Department of Health and Human Services.
