President Signs Bill Targeting Planned ParenthoodApril 17, 2017 |
by Jessie Hellmann
President Trump on Thursday signed a bill to nix an Obama-era rule that blocked states from defunding healthcare providers for political reasons.
The bill, which Democrats say is really an effort to defund Planned Parenthood, passed the Senate last month after Vice President Pence had to cast a tie-breaking vote.
Trump signed the measure behind closed doors in the Oval Office without media present.
