Here's another issue that the Democrats can use to run on in 2020. How many Planned Parenthood facilities will close their doors over this?

Court Rules President Trump Can Defund Planned Parenthood, Will Cut Almost $60 Million in Taxpayer Funding
A federal appeals court today ruled President Donald Trump can partially defund planned Parenthood while the abortion business’ lawsuit against his administration’s new rules moves forward.

As LifeNews reported in March, the Trump administration finalized an administrative rule that would partially defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business and deprive it of as much as $60 million in taxpayer dollars. This action adds to President Trump’s record of defunding the Planned Parenthood abortion company.

The abortion chain receives about $50 million to $60 million in Title X funds annually, but that could change now that the new rules are being implemented. The administration’s changes to Title X family planning grants have angered the abortion chain Planned Parenthood, prompting a lawsuit, but they provide hope for life-affirming pregnancy centers, which can now compete with the abortion giant for the federal funds.

Title X funds are supposed to be used to help low-income women and men receive birth control, cancer screenings and other health care services. While the tax money cannot be used to pay for abortions, it indirectly funds Planned Parenthood’s vast abortion business.

Today, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted the Trump administration’s request to lift national injunctions ordered by lower federal courts in Oregon and Washington state, as well as a statewide injunction in California.

Appeals court lifts injunctions on family planning rules, in win for Trump administration
The 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals -- which previously upheld separate nationwide injunctions on a range of Trump administration policies, including on immigration -- issued the order Thursday, giving a major victory to the Trump administration.

“We are pleased that the Ninth Circuit has cleared the way for this important executive branch action to take effect while our appeals are pending,” Justice Department spokeswoman Kelly Laco said. “The Department of Justice’s position is supported by long-standing Supreme Court precedent and we are confident we will ultimately prevail on appeal.”

Planned Parenthood was among the groups opposing the new rules. The policy has been derided as a "gag rule" by Planned Parenthood.

Good plan there jackasses. Unless they cut it with surgical PRECISION and NOT CUT THE FUNDING INCLUDED FOR BC, pills or other devices, there were will be more UNWANTED births. And it will be POORER women that will have them.

Guess they better be sure and cut the guidelines for 'welfare', because these women will likely be on it for their new babies. $60,000,000 in savings will be eaten up by just 3,000 WOMEN getting SNAP for 4 or 5 years--for 1 BABY.

BRILLIANT!!

When you work for an abortion mill, like Planned Parenthood, it is important to keep your resume up-to-date. If the Democrats are elected, you feel pretty safe but if the Republicans get elected, your funding could be in trouble. The courts slowed down this cut from happening but now it is happening. Will Planned Parenthood close facilities? This is a pretty serious cut to their funding.

I don't get how this became a court case.

Whether you are in support of PP or not... why would there be some legal requirement for any administration to fund this or any number of other programs?

Because Planned Parenthood sued when the President decided to defund them. They initially got an injunction to stop him from defunding Planned Parenthood but that’s done now.

Family planning and contraceptives lead to fewer unplanned pregnancies, so fewer abortions.
Apparently the people who want to defund PP want to see more unplanned pregnancies and more abortions.

They're confused, aren't they?

It would seem that they actually want to take America back to the era of coat-hanger abortions.

Which are, you know, kind of do-it-yourself abortions.

Pretty dangerous. Not to be recommended. Almost kind of a Stone Age medical procedure.

But then, we're dealing with Stone Age Republicans.
