Trump is Allowed to Pursue His Domestic Gag Rule, Courts Rule

Late last month, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals brought us one step closer to dismantling our national family planning program: Title X. The proposed regulations also take aim at women’s health by “gagging,” or prohibiting, any provider receiving Title X funds from providing or even referring patients for abortion services. Every judge to rule in favor of unblocking the rule was appointed by a Republican.

The Gag Is in Place

Across the country, low-income and young women are facing increasing barriers to reproductive health care because of a gag rule recently imposed by Donald Trump’s administration on recipients of Title X.
