Abortion Activists Have Filed Four Lawsuits Trying to Stop President Trump From Defunding Planned Parenthood

March 7, 2019

Maine Family Planning and the Center for Reproductive Rights filed a Wednesday lawsuit against the Trump administration over a rule that will force abortion clinics to separate abortion from other health care services in order to qualify for Title X funding.

MFP is the only Title X-funded program in Maine and has 47 health centers across the state, according to its website. The organization serves roughly 23,000 people. Title X is a federal grant program that provides individuals with “comprehensive family planning and related preventive health services,” according to the Department of Health and Human Services.

The rule will “wreak havoc on reproductive health care across the country, with devastating effects in the state of Maine,” the groups say in their suit, Rolling Stone reported. “Implementing the Rule will eliminate 85 percent of the abortion clinics in the state, and there is no evidence that other, non-Title X providers will step into the resulting void,” the suit says.

The rule will essentially cripple low-income women’s abilities to access affordable health care services, the groups argue.

The lawsuit follows the Trump administration’s Feb. 22 rule barring Title X funds from supporting programs and organizations that provide abortions or abortion referrals. The rule states that “none of the funds appropriated for Title X may be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning.” The rule also “requir[es] the physical and financial separation of Title X projects and facilities from programs and facilities where abortion is a method of family planning,” according to the text.

The rule will force Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics to separate health services such as cancer screenings, pap smears and breast exams from their abortion services, Politico reported. Prior to the ruling, federal law barred Title X grant recipients from using funds to facilitate abortions.

Planned Parenthood claims it will forgo funding altogether if the rule is implemented, according to The Associated Press. Planned Parenthood receives between $50 million and $60 million every year in Title X funds, according to Politico. The abortion organization provides services to just over 40 percent of Title X patients and has claimed stripping federal funds from the organization would devastate women’s access to health care.

The rule will create “a national public health crisis,” according to Planned Parenthood.

The final rule has been submitted to the Office of the Federal Register for publication. The regulations will become effective 60 days after being published in the Federal Register, and clinics will have additional time to comply.

California sued the Trump administration Monday over the final rule. Twenty states and the District of Columbia filed a multi-state lawsuit Tuesday seeking an injunction to prevent the final rule from taking effect. The American Medical Association and Planned Parenthood also filed a Tuesday lawsuit against the Trump administration over the rule.

The National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association and American Civil Liberties Union will also sue over the final rule, according to report

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
