Obama Seeks to Force States to Fund Planned Parenthood Before Leaving Office

1 min

President Barack Obama’s administration announced a new proposed rule that if enacted will compel states to fund Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

Earlier this month the Health and Human Services Department posted a proposed rule on the Federal Register website that invokes Title X in arguing that entities like Planned Parenthood should be allowed to use taxpayer funds on “family planning projects.”

“The Department is proposing to amend the regulations at 42 CFR 59.3 to require that project recipients that do not provide services directly may not prohibit subrecipients from participating on bases unrelated to their ability to provide Title X services effectively,” reads the proposed rule.
