Pence breaks Senate tie to undo Obama regulation blocking states from defunding Planned Parenthood – TheBlaze

Pence breaks Senate tie to undo Obama regulation blocking states from defunding Planned Parenthood – TheBlaze:

The regulation — which went into effect only two days before Obama left office — prevented states from restricting the ability of “specific types of providers,” such as Planned Parenthood, to receive Title X funds “based on reasons unrelated to their ability to provide required services in an effective manner.”"
