Stop the Gag Rule & Stand Up for Women’s Health Care

Title X funds provide family planning, cancer screenings, STD testing and treatment, and general health exams to lower-income women. The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has proposed a rule that would close Planned Parenthood health centers but ignores the devastating impact upon their patients. This “gag rule” would prohibit Title X facilities from providing abortions, referring patients for abortion, or counseling patients that they may consider having an abortion. The Advocates for Women committee encourages you to tell HHS that you oppose the rule. Please click on the link then submit a formal comment using Advocates for Women as the Organization.
