This move by the Trump-Pence administration jeopardizes access to health care for patients who receive care through a statewide network of Planned Parenthood-supported Title X clinics. As a result, patients could lose access to critical services like birth control, STD testing and treatment, and life-saving cancer screenings. The detrimental impact of this policy on the health of Americans’ cannot be overstated.
The Trump-Pence administration has implemented a gag rule scheduled to take effect in 60 days. This gag rule will dismantle our nation’s family planning program, which is ensures that people with low incomes can access reproductive health care. In Minnesota, 53,000 patients across 31 locations–including 51,000 Planned Parenthood patients–rely on Title X-funded clinics for life-saving health care, cancer screenings, birth control, and STD testing.

Everyone, regardless of their race, of their income, or where they live, deserves the best medical care and information available. Under this rule, they won’t get it. Here in Minnesota, 53,000 patients across 31 locations – including 51,000 Planned Parenthood patients – rely on Title X-funded clinics for life-saving health care, cancer screening, birth control, and STI testing. Title X funding is a major part of our public health infrastructure that provides Minnesotans with the birth control and reproductive health services they need.
