SF800 is a proposed $2 million cut from Minnesota’s family planning safety net affecting low-income Minnesotans and their families, many of whom will be left without access to family planning care and cancer prevention services.

Unlike a defund Planned Parenthood bill, this would impact all family planning clinics in Minnesota. 

  • The proposed cuts will decrease family planning funding in Minnesota by 20%, harming low-income and vulnerable communities the most.
  • The cuts will mean that people have less access to critical services like counseling on birth control options, pre-conception care, and STD testing and treatment.
  • Unintended and teen pregnancy rates have been going down in Minnesota and across the country, but there is still much work to do. Thirty-six percent of all pregnancies in Minnesota are still unintended and the teen pregnancy rates for teens of color are three times greater than those of white teens.
  • In addition, the chlamydia rate continues to increase every year in Minnesota and the rates are highest among women, African-Americans, and 20-24 year- olds.
  • Cutting family planning funds will leave thousands of women and their families without care - and it will inevitably increase poor health outcomes for low income women and their families, worsening the already stark health disparities plaguing our state.
  • Cutting more than $2 million from our family planning safety net will impact Minnesota’s ability to reach our state's most vulnerable communities, particularly low income women and their families, many of whom will be left without access to family planning care and cancer prevention services.

Fight Back Against the Title X Gag Rule

The Trump-Pence administration's Title X gag rule would block access to birth control, cancer screenings, and other basic care that Planned Parenthood patients rely on. Take action by a sending message to the elected officials that represent you to encourage them to vote in favor of HF 1011 / SF 1293, a bill that will increase funding for the state-based Family Planning Special Projects (FPSP) grant and help offset the impact of this dangerous rule.
