Trump bans family planning clinics from abortion referrals
16 July 2019
The Trump administration has banned family planning clinics that receive taxpayer funding from referring women for abortions.
The policy also requires clinics to separate their finances from abortion providers. Existing US laws bar the use of tax money for elective abortions.
Medical and women's rights groups have decried the rule, which is seen as a win for anti-abortion groups.
