Judge blocks Donald Trump’s rule change which partially defunded Planned Parenthood

April 24, 2019

Back in February Donald Trump announced a rule change to the Title X program which would cut a rather small portion of Planned Parenthood’s funding.  With the rule change set to go into effect in a few weeks a judge in Oregon has announced he is going to issue an injunction against the rule change.

  Here is more:

U.S. District Judge Michael J. McShane late Tuesday said he’ll grant a preliminary injunction against new federal restrictions that bar taxpayer-funded family planning clinics from referring patients to abortion providers, calling the rule a “ham-fisted approach to public health policy.”

Oregon is one of 20 states and the District of Columbia that challenged the Trump administration’s changes to the Title X family planning program in U.S. District Court in Oregon, along with Planned Parenthood affiliates and the American Medical Association.

McShane said the so-called “gag rule” — barring physicians from referring patients who don’t want to continue their pregnancies to an abortion provider — prevents doctors from behaving like medical professionals.

He said the rule, which is set to go into effect May 3, represents an “arrogant assumption” that government is better suited to direct health care instead of providers.

He also announced he was issuing an injunction against another rule change:

The judge said he’d also grant a preliminary injunction to stop another change — the so-called “separation” rule prohibiting federally funded family planning clinics from being housed in the same place as abortion providers.

  We knew this was going to happen, the only real surprise here is how long it took. When conservatives were fighting against the Executive actions of Barack Obama we were told by the left that it was well within the President’s prerogative to make rule changes and direct agencies how to operate. 

  But that does not seem to be the case anymore, funny how that works isn’t it?!

    They have to continue to feed their god ‘moloch’.
    Spiritual depravity and reprobates. Romans 1:28

    Coincidence that ‘mooch’ was at Paris during the ND fire?
    Sacrifice day. Notice it’s always someone else than ‘the guilty’ spilling their blood & life.
    This is OT but is relevant to the type of ‘occultist’ behind the the ‘sickness in America’.

      Super busy weekend this weekend so I haven’t had a chance to watch the video yet but there is no doubt in my mind this was not a construction fire. We are seeing hundreds of churches over there being attacked and people trying to burn them to the ground and then Sri Lanka and we are supposed to believe this is not related?!
