Tell Congress to Protect Title X
Your chance to help protect the nation’s family planning program—Title X—is here! Congress is considering FY20 appropriations bills that include protections for the Title X program. As you may have heard, Planned Parenthood has been working with bill sponsors to include a Title X Protection provision that will block the Trump-Pence administration from implementing the harmful Title X “gag rule” in addition to continued funding for the critical program. Planned Parenthood sued to stop the gag rule from going into effect in May, and now we need to put policy in place that will stop the dismantling of the Title X program. The U.S. House of Representatives is poised to act on the bill within the next week.
Call your Congressional representative today. Tell them to vote to fund the Title X program without a gag rule and remind them that family planning has always enjoyed bipartisan support. Planned Parenthood in Utah receives Title X funding and uses the funds to provide subsidized health care to 37,000 Utahns from low-income households every year. Access to affordable birth control and preventive health care (cancer screenings, annual exams, STI testing, etc.) is something the Beehive wants and needs. Call TODAY and ask your representative to protect and fund access to birth control through Title X.
