The Title X Family Planning Program Urgently Needs Your Help
Title X is the federal funding that health centers around the country depend on to offer you free or low-cost birth control and other family planning services. But regulations put in place by the Trump Administration (the Title X “domestic gag rule), and years of underfunding have made it harder for health centers supported by Title X to meet the demand for services. Now is the time to undo the bad regulations and fully fund Title X so that everyone—no matter who they are, where they live, or how much money they make—has the birth control they need.  

Because of the Title X gag rule, health centers served 844,000 fewer patients in just one year, a 22 percent decrease. This has exacerbated the barriers that those living in contraceptive deserts already face.  

There have been some encouraging first steps to repair Title X, but Congress still needs to hear from you. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has begun the process of getting rid of the domestic gag rule in response to a directive from President Biden. And the American Rescue Plan included a one-time investment to bring clinics back into the program. To fully repair the damage done to Title X and get more people the birth control they need, the program needs significantly more money each year

What can you do to help? Contact your members of Congress and urge them to increase annual funding for Title X to at least $512 million and encourage HHS to move as quickly as possible to replace the Title X gag rule.
