Tell Your Senators to Provide Robust Funding for Title X
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. 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 for the program.  

Also, on July 29, 2021, the U.S. House of Representatives passed HR 4502, a funding package for Fiscal Year (FY) 2022. Among other things, the bill provides $400 million for Title X, an increase of $113.5 million over the current funding level. Now we need you to make sure that the Senate also provides robust funding for the program.

What can you do to help? Contact your Senators and urge them to increase annual funding for Title X!
