House Democrats are introducing a resolution condemning President Trump's tweets targeting four first-term congresswomen of color. Trump tweeted that the four Democratic representatives should go back to their own countries if they're not happy with the U.S. Three of the four elected lawmakers he was referring to were born in the United States. The resolution condemns the tweets as racist.        Abortion clinics knew it was coming and now it has officially started. The Trump administration on Monday announced a ban on abortion referrals at taxpayer funded family planning clinics. This means the clinics must stop giving low-income women abortion referrals or risk losing their funding. Planned Parenthood calls the move a "gag rule" on doctors and has vowed to leave the program.       A proposed digital currency could become a national security issue, according to the government. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin [[ mih-NEW-chin ]] said Monday that Facebook's cryptocurrency Libra could be misused by money launderers and terrorist financiers. He said digital currencies have been linked to crimes such as tax evasion, extortion, ransom, illicit drugs and human trafficking.        A Florida church is paying off medical debt for people in five counties. The Stetson Baptist Church in DeLand is donating 72-thousand dollars to the charity RIP Medical Debt, which removes 100-dollars' worth of debt for every one dollar donated.        For the first time ever, Huggies is featuring dads on diaper boxes. The new Special Delivery diapers come with seven box designs, three with men and babies and four with women and babies. Huggies brand director Kristine Rhode told USA Today that with the important role dads have in the family, the company wanted to make sure they were equally celebrated.
