Illinois Nixes Family Planning Money After Trump ‘Gag Rule’

by Newsmax  |  Published on August 20, 2019

Gov. J.B. Pritzker says Illinois will not use federal family planning funds as long as Republican President Donald Trump’s administration prohibits women’s health clinics from referring patients for abortions.

The Democrat called Trump’s requirement a “gag rule” Monday on a national conference call in which Planned Parenthood announced it is ending participation in the family planning program rather than follow the rule .

Pritzker says Illinois will stop using the $4 million in federal money it typically disperses to 28 agencies providing women’s health care. He says that the state is evaluating options for providing services.

Pritzker called the rule “an extraordinarily harmful approach that wouldn’t be tolerated in any other category of health care.”
