Federal judge blocks IN law that would require ultrasound before abortions

Display at pro-life rally

The extent to which this will impact Planned Parenthood clinics isn't precisely known, but the implications are worrying.

He's right. It wouldn't cause a controversy; it would cause outrage. If Sachs rules against the regulations, Planned Parenthood could bring back abortion services to clinics in Columbia and Kansas City, and introduce abortion services to clinics in Joplin and Springfield, said Bonyen Lee-Gilmore, communications director for Planned Parenthood Great Plains. They are full-time, salaried, benefited state employees that, in terms of the MOU, are remaining state employees at the same time they're at Planned Parenthood. When statewide abortions are at an all-time low, dropping almost 7,000 annually since 2008, Planned Parenthood has a growing market share on abortion; increasing their annual abortions in PA by over 1,500 since 2008. Abortions represent only a small part of its services, and those services prevent thousands of additional unwanted pregnancies, and therefore abortions, from happening.

The bill, according to the memo, is modeled after last session's failed House Bill 1623, which identified Planned Parenthood specifically as an "unconventional" provider of women's health services.

The regulation Obama passed disallowed states from barring Title X funds from organizations that provide abortion, the most prominent of which would be Planned Parenthood. He said he would give the state time to craft a plan for patients to avoid unintended "collateral damage" from the injunction, which was sought by Planned Parenthood. And he blamed the Freedom Caucus after the ACHA's failure, tweeting that they had helped "save Planned Parenthood and Ocare" and that "we must fight them" in the midterm elections.




This bill is built upon a current state statute that prohibits UW and UW HCA from using any state or UW HCA funds to perform an abortion.

Kamm's demonizing of Planned Parenthood as an "abortion mill", is a myopic view broadly promoted by anti-choice individuals. Even the analysis that Planned Parenthood commissioned showed no "widespread evidence of substantive video manipulation". "Four million people depend on the Title X family planning program, and this move by Washington politicians would endanger their health and well being", Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said in response to Pence's vote. "This allowed women who lived a long distance from one of the four health centers that offer abortion services to make only one lengthy trip in order to obtain an abortion". Under the Congressional Review Act, the resolution only needed a simple majority to pass.

The Senate can not muster 60 votes to overcome a Democratic filibuster of defunding Planned Parenthood, so Republicans have pursued a strategy of passing laws through a legislative process called reconciliation. "It's not an exact line, but it's all setting up the chess pieces so that they have the ability to defund us". "But you can't do that and then separately do Planned Parenthood defunding", said Green, because that would be two reconciliation bills.
