Lawmakers in the US Senate are moving quickly to dismantle President Obama's rule protecting the Title X family planning program. If successful, this would embolden states to block people's access to preventive care at a health center just because it also provides safe, legal abortion.
Title X provides basic preventive health care for millions of people with low incomes or without health insurance. We must speak out immediately and urge our elected officials to protect President Obama's rule.
The stakes are high. Please submit your letter to your elected officials and show them we are voters, and we will not allow them to play political games with essential health care.

Protect Title X family planning
I'm a constituent and I'm writing today to express my concern over the use of the Congressional Review Act to overturn President Obama's rule guaranteeing that Title X family planning patients have access to the most qualified providers of women's health, including Planned Parenthood and other reproductive health centers.Title X is a critical, lifesaving program that provides access to cancer screenings, STI testing and treatment, birth control, well-woman visits, and more. This care is not optional -- it's essential. Many people choose to receive this care from the doctors and nurses they trust at Planned Parenthood health centers. For many others, Planned Parenthood health centers are their only option for basic care.
