A ban on abortion referrals at taxpayer funded family planning clinics is taking effect immediately, the Trump administration said Monday.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) told family planning providers it would begin enforcing the rules after receiving the go-ahead in recent weeks from two federal courts.
The article goes on to state the following:
That means clinics receiving family planning grants to provide contraception and other services to low-income women will have to stop providing abortion referrals, or lose their funding.
In a tweet, Planned Parenthood lashed out at the so-called “gag rule.”
