Funding for Crucial Women Health Programs Here to Stay

This Week has been Wins for Women’s Health Care Funding in the Courts.

On Tuesday, a Federal Judge Ruled that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) could Not Stop Funding Programs affiliated with Planned Parenthood, as ensuring the Programs’ Survival “prevent[s] harm to the community…and prevent[s] loss of data regarding the effectiveness of teen pregnancy prevention.”

On Wednesday, a Judge in Baltimore Ruled that HHS “improperly moved to terminate five-year grant awards issued to the city and a non-profit two years early” for a Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program.

The Courts’ Actions ensure that Women in many Communities can still access Critical Services, but with Trump in Office, we can expect that more Attacks on Women’s Reproductive Rights and Evidence-Based Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs are still to come.
