Federal Judge Strikes Down Anti-Abortion Law Signed By Gov. Mike Pence

Display at pro-life rally

After two Republican senators, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, sided with Democrats in voting to continue debate on the bill, Vice President Mike Pence cast a tie-breaking vote to end debate, and later voted again to repeal the rule. It still needs President Trump's signature. "And they argued that this is actually an undue burden to require that they do this 18 hours in advance". But such differentiation remains illegal under the law, observers indicate. For UW HCA to maintain this title, the OB-GYN residency program must provide training or access to training in the provision of abortions. While the Hyde Amendment disallows tax money from going directly towards an abortion service, funds certainly go directly into the pockets of Planned Parenthood.

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.

The bill would make public health entities the top priority for taxpayer funding, followed by private hospitals and federally-qualified community health centers, and put abortion groups like Planned Parenthood at the end of the list.

Just over a dozen states have already chose to redirect that funding to other healthcare providers, drawing lawsuits challenging the practice.

Locals visiting the local Planned Parenthood location have been met with locked doors and a full answering machine leaving more questions than answers.

A pro-life leader in IN, disappointed by a ruling against the state's ultrasound law, says the judge issuing the ruling failed to recognize a legitimate alternative to what the judge considers a problem with the law.

With its rule, the Obama administration aimed to emphasize that discrimination was not permissible, observers suggest.

HRW says Israel denying aid workers access to Gaza
Unusually, Hamas temporarily closed the only crossing point for people from Gaza into Israel, in an apparent attempt to prevent the assassins escaping.

The state concluded that "voluntary viewing was associated with some women's decision to continue the pregnancy".

While Medicaid reimbursements account for the majority of Planned Parenthood's federal funding, according to a spokesman, another source of funding comes from Title X of the Public Health Safety Act, which provides contraception and other services to low-income individuals.

Daleiden, who pledged that more videos would be forthcoming, now faces 15 felony counts in California, along with his co-investigator, Sandra Merritt, over their undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry.

"Some health centers might be ready, over time, to pick up the slack", she tells the Monitor.

"Title X is the safety net of the safety net", Julie Lynn, manager of external affairs for Planned Parenthood of IL, told Romper in an interview.

"We produced facts to show how this is hurting Planned Parenthood".

Sari Stevens, executive director at Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Advocates, the organization's political arm in Pennsylvania, said the bill is "drafted in a way that it's unclear exactly how it would be implemented", but called it "a Planned Parenthood defunding bill" similar to measures they've seen in the past.
