The Planned Parenthood Federation of America filed a lawsuit charging that it is unconstitutional for the U.S. Agency for International Development to withhold funds from foreign, non-governmental organizations that counsel, make referrals for, or advocate abortions. "It (the policy) seeks to completely choke off any discussion of abortion," PPFA President Faye Wattleton said. She said Planned Parenthood, which received $17.7 million from AID for foreign programs last year, would refuse to sign an "abortion clause" necessary to continue its AID financing agreement after it expires Dec. 31.
