The Title X program has become a battlefront in the USA fight over reproductive rights, with Democrats rallying to protect abortion rights against President Trump and Republicans who have made gains curtailing access to the procedure in this administration and in state legislatures in recent years.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who has now filed 47 lawsuits against the Trump administration, says the new rule affects 4 million mostly low-income women nationwide and 1 million women in California.

The American Civil Liberties Union, the Center for Reproductive Rights, and the state of Washington also have said they plan to sue. Other states include Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia and Wisconsin. The regulation, scheduled to go into effect in April, would block about $60 million in family planning funding to Planned Parenthood because it provides and refers for abortions. Oregon's attorney general said her state and 20 others, including NY, plan to file a lawsuit on Tuesday.

Included in the revised regulations from the US Department of Health and Human Services is a prohibition on what health care providers who receive Title X funds can discuss with patients. Now, clinics must physically and financially separate abortion services to receive funding for the family planning side of services.

Meanwhile, advocates are working to change the laws Becerra and Schubert referenced in the evaluation of the departments' actions. On Tuesday, the city's attorney general was expected to give the results of an independent investigation of the shooting.

IL and 19 other states intend to file lawsuits that seek to block the Trump administration's new rule to make it more hard for women to get abortions.

Opponents have called it a "gag" rule that compromises medical ethics and endangers the lives of patients because it explicitly bars doctors, nurses or other care personnel from referring a woman for an abortion.

Many abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, receive funding through the federal program Title X, which reimburses clinics for services they provide for low-income and uninsured patients. But under the revisions, health care providers who receive Title X funds can not talk about abortion with patients or offer referrals for the procedure.

Among those drawing up papers: Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson vowed to file suit.

The rule is designed primarily to target Planned Parenthood, the largest provider under the Title X family-planning program.

In a statement, Becerra claimed that the rule would deny "patients access to critical health care services and prevents doctors from providing comprehensive and accurate information about medical care". After the rule was released, Planned Parenthood said it "would be impossible" for it to continue participating in Title X adding that it put providers like Planned Parenthood in an "impossible position".

The lawsuit also takes issue with the rule's mandate that every pregnant patient get a referral for prenatal care "regardless of the needs or the wishes of the patient".

A lawsuit by some states against a Trump-administration rule change that effectively blocks millions of taxpayer dollars from the abortionists at Planned Parenthood likely will fail, according to a prominent pro-life organization.
