Court to Block Trump Administration's Ban on Abortion Referrals

An Oregon federal judge will block the Trump administration’s policy of prohibiting taxpayer-funded health-care providers from referring pregnant women to abortion clinics, the state’s top legal officer said.

U.S. District Judge Michael McShane said during a hearing Tuesday in Portland, Oregon, that he will bar the government from enforcing its Title X “gag rule,’’ Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum said in a tweet.
