The Domestic Gag Rule & Title X

#NoGagRule Rally to stand against the Trump Administration's Domestic Gag Rule

Thanks to Title X funding, Planned Parenthood of Montana is able to provide medical services, including birth control, STI testing and treatment, annual exams, and cancer screenings, on a sliding scale to thousands of their patients.

The Trump-Pence administration introduced a nationwide gag rule which makes it illegal for doctors, nurses, hospitals, community health centers, and any other provider in the Title X program to tell patients how they can safely and legally access abortion. It would also introduce new rules designed to make it impossible for patients to access birth control and other reproductive health care at Planned Parenthood health centers across the country.

60 Title X advocates gathered to rally against the Trump Administration's Domestic Gag Rule and to stand with Title X providers. 
Guest speakers included:
- PPMT & PPAMT President, Martha Stahl
- Bridgercare Executive Director, Stefanie McDowell
- Faith Leader, Dwight Welch
- Planned Parenthood patient advocate, Lisa Atwood

Victory on #NoI-183!

Planned Parenthood Advocates of Montana are proud to have been a part of the Free and Fair Montana Campaign. This grassroots campaign stood with transgender and non-binary Montanans by opposing I-183, a proposed anti-trans ballot initiative. Because of the tireless work of Free and Fair Montana supporters, the dangerous initiative failed to make the November 2018 ballot! #NoI183!
