Anti-abortion lawmakers in the House are lobbying the administration to adopt a "domestic gag rule." This rule would withhold funding for health centers unless they promise to never even mention the word "abortion," keeping millions of people from accessing health care in this country.
Send your representatives a message demanding that they oppose any and all attempts for the administration to pass a "domestic gag" rule.

No "domestic gag rule"
I'm writing about a recent report in The Hill that said a group of lawmakers are lobbying the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to adopt a "domestic gag rule" around Title X, the nation's program for affordable birth control and reproductive health care. If enacted, the "domestic gag rule" would withhold funds from ANY health care provider unless they agree to never even mention the word "abortion" -- putting the health care of the four million people who depend on Title X at risk. It would keep people from accessing or even having information about all of their health care options. And it would also block the 41 percent of Title X patients who rely on Planned Parenthood health centers from care, leaving them without access to life-saving services like birth control, cancer screenings, well-women exams, and more. We know from history that the gag rule leads to clinic closures, leaving people with less access to care. This would be radical, and has never been in effect in the United States before.
