Trump Begins Abortion Obstacles,Bans Referrals; Women's Groups Expected to Sue Abortion Limits

The Trump administration on February 22 set up new obstacles for women seeking abortions, barring taxpayer-funded family planning clinics from making abortion referrals, the Religion News website reports today (February 25, 2019).

The final rule also would prohibit federally funded family planning clinics from being housed in the same locations as abortion providers, and require stricter financial separation.

Clinic staff would still be permitted to discuss abortion with clients.

Women's groups, organizations representing the clinics, and Democratic-led states are expected to sue to defeat the policy.
