Laws mandating that

The measure was proposed by the Department of Health and Human Services in September, and finally issued Dec. No federal dollars can be used for abortion services, with exceptions in cases of rape, incest, or danger to a woman’s life.

While Trump has said that Planned Parenthood does “very good work for millions of women,” he has also pledged to stop any federal funding for abortion.A bill currently going through the paces in the New York state legislature would put in place laws mandating nurse staffing that would require specific staffing ratios.According to an Associated Press article, it seems that the debate over the bill is causing a bit of a split between nurses and hospitals.According to the new regulation, state and local government cannot pass any laws that would keep federal funds from reaching these health clinics for any reason—except if they determine that the clinic does not have the “ability to deliver services to program beneficiaries in an effective manner.” While Planned Parenthood is often in the news because anti-abortion activists do not like that its clinics provide abortion services, a much greater percentage of its funding goes towards treating sexually transmitted diseases and infections, providing contraception and screening for breast and cervical cancer.In recent months, Republican lawmakers in over a dozen states have attempted to block Planned Parenthood clinics from receiving any public funds.On the other hand, New York’s hospitals are against the bill saying it would hinder their ability to be flexible with staff scheduling and that it would cost facilities and nursing homes approximately billion annually.
