Trump Rolls Back Obama Warning to States on Defunding Planned Parenthood

Anugrah Kumar – January 20, 2018

The Trump administration has announced that it’s revoking the Obama-era policy of restricting state governments from denying Medicaid funds to Planned Parenthood on the grounds that they are abortion providers.

Department of Health and Human Services under Obama issued the warning in 2016 when 24 states denied Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood following an undercover investigation by the Center for Medical Progress exposed the abortion provider’s alleged business of selling aborted babies’ body parts.

The Trump administration rescinded the guidance Friday in a letter to state Medicaid directors, which said the guidance favored abortion providers, according to The Hill.
