Judge Rules Against HHS on Ending Teen Pregnancy ProgramApril 23, 2018 |

A federal judge in D.C. ruled Thursday that the Trump administration’s cut to the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program were unlawful.
Last summer, the administration notified 81 organizations that their five-year grants through the program would end in 2018, rather than in 2020, prompting multiple lawsuits.
Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson ruled in one of those cases Thursday, ordering the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to accept and process applications of four grantees as if they had not been terminated.
