Comments Against Proposed Gag Rule

Posted July 31, 2018 by Amanda Dunker

These comments were submitted on July 31, 2018 in opposition to changes proposed by the Trump Administration to the Title X Family Planning Program. Title X provides vital sexual and reproductive health services to people across the country, including family planning services, cancer screenings, and wellness exams. The proposed rule would restrict information that medical providers may provide their patients, allow federal funding to be spent to encourage ineffective family planning, and impose strict regulations that could close many clinics. Many of the new regulations are focused on restricting access to abortion.
