FILE - In this Aug. 21, 2019, file photo, pamphlets are shown in the clinic of Planned Parenthood of Utah in Salt Lake City. The Biden administration on Oct. 4, 2021, reversed a ban on abortion referrals by family planning clinics, lifting a Trump-era restriction as political and legal battles over abortion grow sharper from Texas to the U.S. Supreme Court. Groups representing the clinics say they hope the rule reversal leads to the return of hundreds of service providers that left the program to protest the Trump administration's policy. HHS has estimated that the upheaval led to as many as 180,000 unintended pregnancies. The clinics provide birth control and basic health care mainly to low-income women.(AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)
