The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday upheld its June 20 decision allowing the Trump administration to enforce new rules blocking Title X family planning funds from going to abortion facilities. The 7-4 vote rejected an emergency stay request from Planned Parenthood, 20 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and other pro-abortion groups. The appeals court said it would move quickly to review the case against the new regulations, but Thursday’s ruling allows the funding change take effect in the meantime.
