The future of Planned Parenthood across Illinois is far from certain. But its services don't appear to be under immediate threat from a recent directive from President Trump.
That measure would allow state and local governments to withhold Title X family planning funds from health facilities that also provide abortion services.
McLean County's sole Planned Parenthood clinic would not be affected because it doesn't perform abortions. Additionally, all Planned Parenthood clinics statewide receive Title X funds as a direct grantee of the federal government and not through the state, said Julie Lynn of Planned Parenthood of Illinois.
However, women's reproductive services, especially for low income residents, remain a target of many federal and state officials, Lynn said.
