#ProtectX: We Need to Undo the Dangerous Title X Gag Rule
UPDATE: Even though the Trump-Pence administration’s Title X gag rule was originally blocked by federal courts, a ruling by a panel of a U.S. Court of Appeals just allowed the gag rule to go into effect everywhere but the state of Maryland. This is a targeted blow to the 4 million patients who obtain birth control, cancer screenings and other essential care through Title X.
But this fight isn’t over. Less than 24 hours before this devastating decision, the House voted in favor of protective language for the Title X program without the gag rule. In a few weeks, the Senate can choose to do the same.
