Proposed Changes to Title X Jeopardize Health Care for 18,000 Granite Staters, including over 11,000 Planned Parenthood NH Patients

Concord, NH - Today the Trump-Pence Administration officially announced proposed changes, known as the “domestic gag rule,” to the Title X family planning program that would essentially dismantle the nation’s program for affordable birth control and reproductive health care. In New Hampshire, the proposed changes would impact roughly 18,000 women, men, and young people served by the Title X program annually. The five Planned Parenthood health centers in New Hampshire provide health care to approximately 60% of those Title X patients and are among the only places people can go to for specialized care like intrauterine devices (IUDs) or the birth control shot.

Statement from Sabrina Dunlap, Vice President of Public Policy for Planned Parenthood of Northern New England:

“The proposed gag rule is a cruel policy that would be disastrous for the populations most in need of basic health care. In New Hampshire, 18,000 people rely on Title X funding for essential health care services - 60% of whom are served by Planned Parenthood of Northern New England. Under this rule, those Granite Staters will not receive the health care they need, such as birth control, cancer screenings, STD testing and treatment, or well person exams.

At Planned Parenthood, we believe everyone has the right to access information about their health care - including information about safe, legal abortion - and everyone deserves the best medical care, regardless of income or where they live. Planned Parenthood will never stop fighting for our patients across the country and here in New Hampshire. No matter what.”


Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE) is the largest provider of reproductive and sexual health care for women, men and teens across the State of New Hampshire. We serve New Hampshire residents through 6 health centers in Claremont, Derry, Exeter, Keene, Manchester and White River Junction, VT. Last year we saw more than 11,000 patients at these sites.

Planned Parenthood New Hampshire Action Fund (PPNHAF) is an independent, nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization formed as the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England in New Hampshire. The Action Fund engages in educational and electoral activity, including voter education, grassroots organizing, and legislative advocacy.
