August 19, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion vendor, announced today it has officially dropped out of the Title X program and will forgo nearly $60 million in taxpayer funding rather than comply with a Trump administration rule requiring that it separate its abortions from the rest of its operations.

President Donald Trump’s Protect Life Rule requires recipients of Title X federal family planning money to be physically and financially separate from abortion operations and prevents them from referring for abortions. The rule still “permits, but does not require, nondirective counseling on abortion by doctors or advanced practice providers,” according to a fact sheet from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
