Title X is essential for affordable family planning

Title X is a federal program that helps low-income people access comprehensive family planning and affordable reproductive health care. Through Title X, more than 4 million people across the country have access to cancer screenings, STD testing, birth control, and other reproductive health care.

Title X is essential for affordable family planning services and for preventing unintended pregnancies.

The Trump Administration is already pushing ineffective abstinence-only programs; now they have proposed a gag rule that would restrict doctors and nurses from discussing the complete range of reproductive options with their patients.

It doesn't take much of an investigation to see the Administration's goal here: deny Title X funding for providers who discuss abortion with their patients.

Together, we can stop this gag rule. Start by signing the petition to protect Title X.

The Trump Administration has no business telling health care providers how to discuss treatment options with patients — especially when they have anti-choice objectives that have nothing to do with the health of their patients.
