Two months before US President Barack Obama leaves office, he is trying to prevent his successor from harming Planned Parenthood funding at the state level.

According to the Planned Parenthood website, Obama’s “proposed rule would reinforce existing protections in the Title X family planning program that prohibit states from excluding Planned Parenthood and other women's health providers for reasons unrelated to their ability to provide critical Title X services effectively.”

Planned Parenthood is a nonprofit organization that provides health and contraceptive services. Obama has spoken positively in the past about this organization.
