Anti-Abortion Activists Pressing Trump to Cut Planned Parenthood Funding

Trump Administration to Propose New Curbs on Abortion

Planned Parenthood Vice President Dawn Laguens praised Miller for refusing to defend the protections for unborn babies, CNN reports.

The plan is to stop any organization that receives funding under the birth-control dispensing Title X Family Planning Program from either promoting abortion or being an abortion referral agency.

Attorney General Tom Miller's office sent a letter to the state legislature saying Miller was disqualifying himself due to the "determination that he could not zealously assert the state's position because of his core belief that the statute, if upheld, would undermine rights and protections for women".

Lawmakers adopted several abortion restrictions in 2017, including a 20-week abortion ban and a requirement that women wait three days before ending a pregnancy.

Until the 2016 election, Iowa had little to no role in the broad GOP effort to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that established a woman's right to terminate a pregnancy until a fetus is viable. Reynolds, who signed Iowa's ban earlier this month, said at a public event in Davenport that she felt "very confident" about defending the lawsuit.

The ACLU of Iowa is suing to block the law.

Researchers were actually able to reverse this effect using an IVF drug called cetrorelix , and the mice ceased to have symptoms. Calling it a new method for approaching PCOS, researchers said they hope to begin drug trials by the end of this year.

"With it, Iowa politicians have tried to ban virtually all abortions for women in our state". Recent history in Iowa courts also doesn't bode well for the law.

Other plaintiffs in the lawsuit include Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, the affiliate's medical director and the Emma Goldman Clinic in Iowa City.

Well, Iowa, of course, as you just reported, I mean, this is one of the most extreme abortion bans in the country.

"Getting a win on the pro-life side, even if it's regulatory rather than legislative, would be huge, and encourage people to come out and vote for the members who pushed for action on this", stated Marcum, as quoted by The Hill. While the rationale behind the bill is noble, a number of pro-life leaders recognize that, for the present, such bills may create unintended consequences that could hamper the pro-life cause.

The Supreme Court validated the Reagan-era regulations so activists hope another pro-life president who has repeatedly promised to cut off tax dollars to Planned Parenthood can move towards their restoration.
