President Obama Adds Funding Protections For Planned Parenthood

President Obama has proposed a new rule that prevents the defunding of Planned Parenthood in some states for political reasons. The proposition would prevent states from withholding Title X federal family planning money from constituents for any reasons other than their provider's "ability to deliver services to program beneficiaries in an effective manner."

"This will make a real difference in so many people's lives," said Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood. "Thanks to the Obama administration, women will still be able to access the birth control they need to plan their families, and the cancer screenings they need to stay healthy."

She adds: "This rule makes it clear that politicians cannot ignore the law as they pursue their agenda to stop women from getting the care they need."
