After the Trump administration finalized new federal rules Friday, by which abortion businesses will be ineligible to receive Title X Program funding. In a call-to-action on their webpage, Planned Parenthood said the new rule "puts healthcare at risk for four million patients and keeps patients from getting information about all of their health care options".
Enacted in 1970, the Title X program now provides 4 million low-income people access to reproductive health services, including birth control, STI testing, mammograms and cancer screenings. The program's annual budget is $286 million per year.
Federal law bans the use of taxpayer money for abortions, except in cases of rape or incest or when a pregnanat mother's life is in danger. Today's broad-based move against abortion and family planning services is more illustrative of the comprehensively restrictive intentions of this administration and its party.
"The Protect Life Rule does not cut family planning funding by a single dime, and instead directs tax dollars to entities that provide healthcare to women but do not perform abortions", Dannenfelser said in a statement.
"Consistent with the statutory requirement that no funds may be expended where abortion is a method of family planning, this regulation no longer requires, and affirmatively prohibits, referral for abortion as a method of family planning", it says.

Planned Parenthood president Dr. Leana Wen said on Friday that "the Title X gag rule will essentially dismantle this critical federal program" and that in many remote or rural areas of the U.S., Planned Parenthood is "the only provider who participates in the program". Additionally, any organization that receives Title X funding, including Planned Parenthood, would have to stop performing abortions in order to continue receiving that money.
'Imagine if the Trump administration prevented doctors from talking to our patients with diabetes about insulin, ' she said. Last August, HHS announced that the network would largely remain status quo, with 12 additions including Planned Parenthood affiliates. If a pregnant patient has made a decision to have an abortion and makes an explicit request for a referral, physicians would be allowed to provide a list of comprehensive care providers as long as they do not indicate which of them offer abortion services.
Planned Parenthood and NARAL condemned the changes and continued to refer to them as a "gag rule" despite the fact that it permits abortion counseling by Title X centers.
Reproductive rights advocates are calling this a "domestic gag rule", an allusion to a long-standing Republican worldwide policy known as the "global gag rule" (or Mexico City Policy) prohibiting USA -supported family planning money from going to organizations that perform or promote abortion services. However, clinics will have 120 days to comply with the requirement that family planning and abortion services are kept financially separated and a year to comply with the physical separation requirement. Said Cummings, "The Administration is ignoring the significant health and economic impacts its actions will have on millions of Americans who rely on the Title X program".
"We want our patients to know that our doors our open, and we will be here for them", she said.
Leaders of health associations representing black and Latino health care providers and patients joined Wen at a news briefing to decry the new rule They said women from their communities make up more than half the beneficiaries of Title X grants and would be disproportionately harmed by the changes.
