What Does Trump's Proposal To Cut Planned Parenthood Funds Mean?

The planned revival of a policy dating to Ronald Reagan's presidency that was slightly retooled and quietly submitted for federal budget review Friday may finally present a way for President Trump to fulfill his campaign promise to "defund" Planned Parenthood. Or at least to evict it from the federal family planning program, where it provides care to more than 40 percent of that program's 4 million patients. Congress last year failed to wipe out funding for Planned Parenthood, because the...
