California is suing the Trump Administration again, this time over abortion. State Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced he filed a lawsuit in San Francisco Federal court on Friday. He’s asking the judge for an injunction blocking a proposed new government regulation that would bar doctors in federally-funded family planning clinics from referring any patients to abortion providers. In a statement, Becerra says the lawsuit is intended “to protect patients, providers and family planning clinics.”
