Should the Title X Abortion Gag Rule Be Overturned?
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has proposed overturning a rule issued during the Trump administration that bans Title X-funded clinicians from discussing abortion, offering to perform an abortion, or referring patients for abortions. Since the rule was put into place, 25% of Title X-funded service sites have withdrawn from the program, which has led to decreased availability of family planning services for low-income and uninsured patients. Anti-abortion groups vehemently oppose the proposal, but many medical organizations and reproductive health specialists feel that the change will help restore access to necessary care.
