876 Pro-Abortion Clinics Have Lost Federal Funding under Trump Pro-Life Rule
Nearly 900 clinics that either perform abortions or promote them have lost federal funding under a new Trump administration rule that prevents family planning clinics receiving taxpayer money from promoting or referring for abortion, according to a new report.
At issue is money under Title X, a federal family planning program that funds cancer screenings, contraceptives and pregnancy tests for low-income individuals.

Among them are clinics tied to Planned Parenthood, which announced in August it would forgo federal funding rather than abide by the rule....

In addition, fundamentalist and nativist forces had gained more control over the temperance movement, alienating its more moderate members."

I have a hard time considering anybody Christian who does not want to support universal healthcare, for example.

Some if not all these women described in the above article we're not seeking an abortion.
