Title X & The Gag Rule

Title X is the nation’s family planning program.

Title X provides money to organizations that make sure men and women get the reproductive health care they need. These funds help the most low-income people in our communities take charge of their health. 

What is the gag rule?

What is the gag rule?

The gag rule prevents health care providers from talking about abortion as an option. This means doctors are not allowed to give patients all the options available to them.

Picture being in your doctor’s office seeking care. A rule like this would prevent your health care provider from telling you all the information you need because politicians don’t want you to know.

This violates medical ethics and means that doctors would be forced to withhold important information from their patients. That’s dangerous and wrong.
