Reports in that Donald Trump to issue arrest warrants for Planned Parenthood leadership by the end of week. Amid flurry of executive orders in first week his presidency, including orders removing USA from key trade agreements, orders renewing efforts to build domestic pipelines, and orders to dismantle Obamacare, Trump looks to make his boldest move yet and arrest four top leaders at women’s health group Planned Parenthood
Planned Parenthood is a national nonprofit aimed at promoting women’s health and providing safe, affordable access to birth control and abortion, among other things. The forthcoming arrest warrants are viewed as a sharp departure from the Obama presidency’s stand on reproductive health and mark a new era in the turbulent battle for abortion rights in America.
While the exact charges for the Planned Parenthood leaders are unknown, reports indicate they could range anywhere from manslaughter to conspiracy to commit murder. These charges will not come easily and once the warrants are issued, this is expected to be the first in a series of legal battles fought by the Trump administration’s new attorney general, Jeff Sessions.
