Trump to Propose Sweeping New Abortion Restrictions

The Trump administration is expected to announce major new restrictions on abortion on Friday, The New York Times reports. The new White House policy will ban Planned Parenthood and other facilities that receive federal funds from “providing or mentioning abortions,” according to the Times. President Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election in part due to the widespread support he got from evangelical and socially conservative voters. Currently, Planned Parenthood is unable to use federal funds directly for abortions.
