Background on Donald Trump
Donald Trump and his administration issued a "gag rule" that bans doctors in Title X — our nation's only program focused on affordable birth control and reproductive health care — from telling women how they can safely and legally access abortion. The gag rule would make it impossible for patients in Title X to get birth control at Planned Parenthood health centers.I Stand With Planned Parenthood
