What Does the Gag Rule Mean for Planned Parenthood?

And What Happens Now?

The gag rule keeps patients from getting information about all of their options and forces doctors to withhold critical information from their patients. The rule makes it impossible for Planned Parenthood health centers to uphold their medical standards and provide complete, ethical, high-quality care.

Because Planned Parenthood is dedicated to acting in the best interests of our patients, our health care providers are unable to participate in the administration’s unethical Title X program.

We’re working to make sure that all Planned Parenthood patients can still get the health care they need. To find out if you can still get free or low-cost services at Planned Parenthood, call your nearest Planned Parenthood health center


Planned Parenthood health center doors are open to everyone.

Planned Parenthood will always be here for its patients and will continue to fight for everyone’s ability to get affordable, quality health care.



We believe everyone deserves the best medical care and information available.

We’re going to do everything we can to fight for patients’ ability to come to Planned Parenthood for health care. Health care is a human right and we will not let this stand.

Now is the time to unite, and make sure we all have the right and opportunity to live full, healthy lives.
