Planned Parenthood expected to leave federal program over 'gag rule'
By Daniel Uria
Aug. 19 (UPI) -- Facing a Monday deadline to inform the government how it plans to comply with a new rule that bars Title X funds for organizations that provide access to abortion, Planned Parenthood said it's effectively being forced from the federal family planning program in a move that will impact millions of Americans.
Planned Parenthood has said it has no choice but to leave the program, due to the rule, unless a federal court steps in. The organization said it would announce its next steps Monday afternoon.
