Nine states run by anti-choice Republicans have banned abortion at 20 weeks or earlier. But now the U.S. Senate is considering a nationwide 20-week abortion ban, which would include Pennsylvania.

Abortion ‘Gag Rule’ Just Went into Effect, and We’re Now in Full Handmaid’s Tale Territory

"The new rule blocks health providers from receiving any Title X funding if they so much as discuss abortion with patients — even when patients specifically inquire about their options. The rule also short circuits any common-sense work-arounds; Title X recipients are required to maintain separate physical space as well as separate finances from abortion providers."

"The implementation of the rule means an immediate cessation of funding for many health organizations, including the largest –Planned Parenthood. By contrast, groups that oppose abortion and hormonal birth control are now eligible for funding under the rule. These “crisis pregnancy centers” that advocate for abstinence and against birth control or abortion – often in questionable and even dishonest ways – recently received a Supreme Court win via Clarence Thomas."

Obria, the anti-abortion group that’s hoping to replace Planned Parenthood

Earlier this year, Obria received a $1.7 million federal grant through Title X, a program aimed at providing family planning services to underserved Americans. The program was designed, in part, to help people get affordable contraception like birth control pills and IUDs.

But critics say Obria clinics don’t actually provide those things.
