Protect X: Why the Title X Gag Rule Is Our Next Big Fight

The Trump-Pence administration just issued a "gag rule" — one of the most dangerous and unconscionable attacks on our health and rights we’ve seen yet.

It dismantles the Title X program — founded nearly 50 years ago to provide affordable birth control and reproductive health care for millions of Americans.

Mission Statement

More than 100 years ago, Planned Parenthood was founded on this simple idea: Your body is your own. If it is not, we cannot be truly free or equal.
