Ninth Circuit Sides With Trump Admin on Abortion Funding Rules


The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which is known for being the most liberal circuit court, has sided with the Trump administration on a controversial abortion funding rule.

According to Town Hall:

The liberal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday ruled the Trump administration’s decision to withhold Title X funding from medical facilities that provide abortion is constitutional. Their decision overturned preliminary injunctions issued by lower courts in three different states, Fox News reported.

The Title X rule was first enacted in 1970, which prohibited taxpayer-funded abortions as “a method of family planning.” During President Ronald Reagan’s administration in 1988, “merely provid[ing] counseling or referrals for abortion for family-planning purposes” fell under this limitation. The Supreme Court upheld those rules in a 1991 decision.

The regulations were more lax until 2019 when the Trump administration’s Department of Health and Human Services decided to pull funding from any facility that provides abortions, abortion counseling or abortion referrals.

“In light of Supreme Court approval of the 1988 regulations and our broad deference to agencies’ interpretations of the statutes they are charged with implementing, plaintiffs’ legal challenges to the 2019 rule fail,” Judge Sandra S. Ikuta wrote in the court’s opinion. “Accordingly, we vacate the injunctions entered by the district courts and remand for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.”

The panel of judges also noted that the previous rule was more restrictive and one of the reasons they allowed this rule.

  1. At the risk of sounding rude or mean, the best way for a woman to avoid having an abortion is to keep her legs closed and yell loud enough for someone to hear.

  2. The other way women don’t get pregnant take contraceptives and the men take precautions also.
    Condoms always help if they don’t break. The other alternative to abortions is adaptions there are plenty of couples that can’t have a family they want due to medical conditions and would love to adapt a child. Abortion should be the last choice and not the first choice give that child a chance at life.
