0

The Trump administration will announce a plan today that Title X family planning funding will no longer go to facilities that promote or perform abortions, according to a report from Catholic News Agency. If implemented, organizations that perform abortion, like Planned Parenthood, would be ineligible to receive any of the $260 million the federal government spends in Title X funding.

The Trump administration on Friday will announce a plan to ensure that Title X family planning funding does not go to programs or facilities that promote or perform abortions, CNA has learned.

The measure would dramatically curtail federal funding to abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood.

According to a Trump administration official, the Health and Human Services Department will file a proposal with the Office of Management and Budget to ensure that abortion is not treated as a method of family planning under Title X.
