+  Planned Parenthood sues Trump administration over abortion 'gag rule'

  • Description: Catherine Glenn Foster, President and CEO of Americans United for Life (AUL), has issued the following statement: “Since it began in 1970, Title X has excluded elective abortions from its grant program, reflecting the commitment of the majority of Americans not to have their hard-earned tax dollars subsidize Planned Parenthood and other members of the abortion industry. HHS’s new regulation makes this rule clearer for everyone involved, and its terms have already been upheld by the Supreme Court during the Reagan Administration. Furthermore, the new rule expands the scope of medical providers eligible to deliver Title X services, and adds critical new protections for victims of child trafficking and sexual exploitation. It’s a ‘win-win’ all around, so naturally, only Planned Parenthood and its apologists could object to it.”

      Catherine Glenn Foster, M.A., J.D., is President and CEO of Americans United for Life, America’s first national pro-life organization and the nation’s premier pro-life legal team. AUL’s legal strategists have been involved in every pro-life case before the U.S. Supreme Court since Roe v. Wade. AUL is the pioneer of the state-based model legislative strategy, which works to save lives today while undermining the so-called “reliance” interest adopted by the Supreme Court in Planned Parenthood v. Casey: the false idea that women “rely” on abortion to succeed in American society. Under Foster’s leadership, AUL pursues and refines a mother-child strategy that looks at the interests and vulnerabilities of both, protecting them from abortion industry abuses.
