You may have heard that recently, the Trump-Pence administration released a new gag rule for Title X, the national funding program for affordable reproductive health services that Planned Parenthood participates in. This rule will censor, or gag, health care providers and prohibit them from giving patients referrals for ALL of their pregnancy options. The gag rule will keep patients from getting the best health care possible.
Because of our commitment to ethical patient care, it would be impossible for Planned Parenthood to continue participating in the program. All patients, regardless of income, should have access to the best medical care and information possible. This gag rule would keep patients from having information about all of their options. We won’t withhold critical information from our patients.
To be absolutely clear: Our health centers are open. Our hours and services have not changed. We are continuing to provide the same high-quality, affordable health care we always have, including routine and preventive sexual and reproductive health care like birth control, annual exams, STD testing, cancer screenings, and more.
If you have any questions about our services or your care, please give us a call at 1-800-230-PLAN.
