Title X Gage Rule

On Thursday, the 9th Circuit issued it’s decision that the government has the right to deny grant funding for reproductive health services to facilities that also perform abortions or that have providers that offer information about abortions to patients.

This move, which is similar to the Global Gag Rule is detrimental to low-income people who rely on organizations like Planned Parenthood to access reproductive health services.

Dr. Leana Wen (President of Planned Parenthood) issued a statement: “Planned Parenthood will not let the government censor our doctors and nurses from informing patients where and how they can access health care, we will continue to fight the Trump administration in the courts and alongside champions in Congress to protect everyone’s fundamental right to health care.”

Planned Parenthood is asking supporters of health equity to TAKE ACTION today.
