Court Slaps Down Trump Rules Prioritizing Abstinence
Monday, Jan 13, 2020

The Trump administration changed rules on how the government funds programs to prevent teen pregnancy, but the law requires that money to go to evidence-based programs – a hurdle that abstinence-only programs don’t clear, the Ninth Circuit ruled Friday.
