State attorneys general and women's health advocates are pushing back at the Trump Administration’s rules for the federal family planning program, Title X, but will likely face an uphill battle, NPR reports. The U.S. Supreme Court in 1991 upheld similar measures in the case of Rust v. Sullivan, which proponents uphold as proof that the rules are constitutional. The crux of the argument surrounds removing Planned Parenthood from the Title X program, an enduring pursuit of abortion opponents. Planned Parenthood has not said whether it will sue, however, several states and the ACLU intend to file lawsuits challenging the regulations.
