More Parties Speak Up About the Abortion Gag Rule

The states of Oregon, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia and Wisconsin and the District of Columbia have filed suit to block the Trump Administration’s attempt that would effectively strip millions of federal dollars from reproductive health providers that perform abortion services and referrals. A copy of the complaint is here. Here’s a link to the press release from the New York Attorney General.

In addition, the AMA, Planned Parenthood of America, and other related organizations and individuals have also filed a complaint to the same end. A copy of that complaint is here.

My understanding is that other lawsuits either have or will shortly be filed. I will attempt to track and post copies of the complaints.
