Biden lifts abortion referral ban on family planning clinics – Omaha, Nebraska

Omaha, Nebraska 2021-10-04 21:18:57 –

Washington (AP) — The Biden administration has overturned a federal-funded family planning clinic ban on abortion referrals.

As the political and legal battle for abortion intensifies from Texas to the US Supreme Court, Monday’s actions by the Department of Health and Human Services will lift restrictions during the Trump era.

A group representing the clinic says it hopes that the reversal of the rules will lead to the return of about 1,300 service providers who have left the program to protest the Trump administration’s policies.

HHS estimates that this cataclysm led to 180,000 unintended pregnancies.

The clinic mainly provides contraception and basic health care for low-income women.
