Trump wants to end requiring U.S. religious welfare groups to tell clients of options

Religious social service providers receiving funds from the U.S. government would no longer have to tell their clients about other, possibly secular organizations that offer similar help under changes the Trump administration proposed on Thursday.

Conservative Christians, a key bloc in President Donald Trump’s Republican party, have pushed to lift the requirement that religiously affiliated service groups must tell clients about alternative providers if they receive federal money. They also must post information on referrals and track the referrals they make.

The requirement has been a flashpoint in the national fight over abortion.
