Twenty-one states announced Monday they are suing the Trump administration over changes to the Title X family-planning program. The changes would shift tens of millions of dollars from Planned Parenthood toward “faith-based” pregnancy clinics. Under the new rule, federally funded family planning clinics cannot provide abortions or refer patients for abortions. The coalition of 20 states and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra have separately announced lawsuits seeking a court injunction to stop the rule from taking effect in 60 days. The rule would affect more than 4 million low-income women who receive services, including cancer screenings and pregnancy tests through the Department of Health and Human Services program. The lawsuits were brought by mostly Democratic-controlled states.
