9th Circuit Court Upholds Protect Life Rules

On June 20, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the Protect Life Rule. Providers will have to separate family planning services from abortion services if they want to keep receiving federal money. The effect of the ruling will lift the injunction issued by U.S. District Judge Michael J. McShane on April 23.

The ruling will immediately require abortion providers, mainly Planned Parenthood, to stop referring women for abortions. In 2020 they will have to physically and financially separate abortion services from family planning services.
