Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers could lose federal funding in some states. Recently, President Donald Trump signed legislation removing an Obama-era regulation which barred states from denying funding to health clinics because they perform abortions. According to Planned Parenthood, abortion services make up 3 percent of their operations. Since the passage of the Hyde Amendment in 1976, the law already prohibits the use of federal funds for abortions. The White House says the money diverted from those clinics will still be dedicated to women’s health. Yet, some women’s health advocates say some women, especially those on limited incomes, could fall through the cracks.
