Planned Parenthood claimed President Donald Trump has pushed countless policies, like amending Title X and reinstating a global gag rule on abortion, in an effort to control women all over America and that its new venture, “Tracking Trump,” is vital to ending the “harm” the organization said those policies cause.

“Tracking Trump is a record of all that’s happened so far and what it means for all of us,” Planned Parenthood explained on its launch site. “We’re uncovering the facts, highlighting the key players, and revealing the effects.”

President Trump controls women, immigrants, the LGBTQ community and low-income earners, according to the abortion organization’s website. Vice President Mike Pence controls health care, civil rights and discrimination laws, the organization posits. Planned Parenthood lists a number of other officials within the Trump administration along with the items they control, pointing only to the controls the abortion group considers deleterious to women rather than providing a comprehensive list.

“The Trump-Pence administration is illegally trying to dismantle Title X, the nation’s only program dedicated to affordable birth control,” Planned Parenthood stated. (RELATED: Planned Parenthood Cancels Appointments Left And Right After Supreme Court Ruling)

The abortion organization alleged that Trump and the actions of his officials — whom it posits do not represent the people because many of them were appointed rather than democratically elected — continuously seek to restrict the rights of women and minority communities. The group said it hopes “Tracking Trump” will not only act as a resource, but also as a catalyst for change so women will be able to access birth control and abortions without any barriers.

Planned Parenthood’s launch of the tracking site falls contiguously to the Supreme Court’s Monday ruling that the federal government has no obligation to provide illegal immigrant minors with abortions.
