Ninth Circuit allows federal abortion funding ban to go into effect
9th Circuit Court

[Ed. – Big win, for now.]

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will allow a Trump administration ban on Title X funding for abortion providers to go into effect on Thursday after abortion advocates and a group of states sought an emergency stay for the policy. The administration’s policy would prevent abortion providers from obtaining federal funding.

Last month, a three judge panel temporarily allowed the policy to go into effect pending the outcome of an appeal to the Ninth Circuit. …

The decision requires health care clinics to be physically and financially separate from abortion clinics and forbids clinics that receive federal funding from recommending patients pursue abortions.
