President Trump just administered a severe blow to planned parenthood as the Abortion clinic struggled and finally lost in the most Liberal court in the country the 9th circuit court of appeals.
The Ninth Court of Appeals upheld President Trump’s request to stop taxpayer dollars from going to abortion referrals on Monday. Planned Parenthood the nations largest Abortion clinic sued the Administration along with around 20 other states in an attempt to stop HHS from stopping Title X funds going to Abortions. Now that the ninth circuit has two judges appointed by President Trump the plea has been rejected.
By allowing the Title X gag rule to take effect, millions of Americans nationwide will find it harder to access affordable reproductive health care, including birth control and cancer screenings. This is unacceptable. Thank you @SenCortezMasto for taking a stand. #ProtectX https://t.co/082exVM4I3

Now that the ninth circuit gave the win to Trump, the Administration will implement new rules that planned parenthood has to abide by first the Administration will notify PP that the ban on Abortion referrals will begin ASAP.
The second requirement will be that abortions can not be added to planned parenthoods finances and should be separate from family planning finances.
The Third requirement is that Abortions can not be administered in the same facility as family planning clinics, but this last requirement won’t take effect until Jan 1st, 2020.
Planned Parenthood President Leana Wen says that Abortion clinics “doors are still open.”
She went on to say “We will continue to fight for all those across the nation in need of essential care.”
UPDATE: Lena Wen has been removed by planned parenthood according to Wen the PP board, and she has different views on how PP is to operate this is her Full comments:
