If feds strip Planned Parenthood’s funding, California would be especially hard hit

If President Trump and conservative Republicans in Congress succeed in cutting off Planned Parenthood from receiving any federal funds, the impact will be particularly strong in California—a state where legislators over the years have interpreted federal laws and rules in ways that have allowed more federal dollars to flow to Planned Parenthood clinics. Roughly half of the federal funding that Planned Parenthood receives nationwide now goes to cover health care for Californians.
