"The clear goal of this Title X rule change was to benefit abortion providers like Planned Parenthood", said Cardinal Timothy Dolan of NY, who is chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' Committee on Pro-Life Activities.

Federal law already prohibits government money for abortion, except in cases of rape or incest or to save a woman's life.

President Donald Trump has stirred controversy once again, this time introducing a bill that would eliminate funding for abortions.

Moore, a strident critic of Trump, publicly declared his support for Planned Parenthood by joining the organization the day after the president's inauguration.

Trump even invited top right-wing activists to the Oval Office to watch him sign the legislation.

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.), by contrast, called the measure "a major pro-life victory". "I applaud President Trump for signing this resolution into law".

The pro-abortion group said that the objective of the meeting was "to make sure that Ivanka fully understood what Planned Parenthood does, how it is funded", said Planned Parenthood Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens, as quoted by Politico. Vice President Mike Pence, 57, cast a vote to break the tie, deciding to defund the non-profit.

Trump signed the unpopular rollback of the Obama regulation that didn't allow states to defend Planned Parenthood's family planning in a closed press event with no television cameras allowed.

President Trump signed a law today overturning a last-minute Obama-era regulation forcing states to fund Planned Parenthood, America's largest abortion business. Joni Ernst. Prioritizing funding away from Planned Parenthood to comprehensive health care alternatives is a winning issue. "Too many women still face barriers to health care, especially young women, women of color, those who live in rural areas, and women with low incomes".

About 1.5 million Planned Parenthood patients benefit from Title X funds, according to the group, 78 percent of whom live with incomes of 150 percent of the federal poverty level and roughly one-third of whom are either Latino or African American.

The measure nixes a rule from President Obama's days that blocked states from defunding Planned Parenthood and other healthcare centers for political reasons, and could force clinics to close across the country.
