U.S. health agency revokes Obama-era Planned Parenthood protection.

 U.S. health officials on Friday said they were revoking legal guidance issued by the Obama administration that had sought to discourage states from trying to defund organizations that provide abortion services, such as Planned Parenthood.

This is just a tad bit confusing, but, then it's MSN reporting.

The rule will enforce existing statutes that guarantee these civil rights. Roger Severino, director of the Office of Civil Rights at HHS, said the office had received 34 complaints since President Donald Trump took office last January.

When asked by reporters if the rule would allow providers to deny care to transgender individuals based on religious objections, Severino said the rule refers to statutes that are based on providing procedures.

Experts on Thursday said the move to protect workers on religious grounds raised the possibility it could provide legal cover for otherwise unlawful discrimination, and encourage a broader range of religious objections.

MSN does a wonderful job of completely mudding up the issue, taking it from funding and turning it into some kind of transgender? and/or religious objection and inserting "unlawful discrimination".   Wow....   This article reminds me of group-think, sitting around in a board room, and everyone trying to craft an all-inclusive statement (which nobody reads, nor would understand).

Interesting... the article does not provide ANY of the original text to the HHS guidance, or link - so we got nothing to confirm any of it is even true / fact check?    And MSN gets upset when President Trump (libs hate that) decries "Fake News"?   This article isn't news, it's a page of opinion, in-my-opinion, which is just as good as theirs!
