No Gag Rule. Protect Our Care
Any minute now, we are expecting the Trump administration to announce an Executive Order blocking Planned Parenthood health centers from receiving Title X funds and banning other Title X recipients from counseling patients on their full reproductive health options.
Make no mistake, this is a Domestic Gag Rule, and its consequences will be devastating to health care:
- It will impose new rules that are designed to make it impossible for patients to get birth control or preventative care from designated family planning providers like Planned Parenthood.
- Under this rule doctors, nurses, hospitals, and community health centers across the country will no longer be able to refer their patients for safe, legal abortion.
- It removes the guarantee that you’re getting full and accurate information about your health care from your doctor. For nearly two decades, Title X has been clear: Health care providers cannot withhold information from you about your pregnancy options. This new rule means they can.
Planned Parenthood health centers serve 41% of Title X patients nationally and 63% of Title X patients in Ohio. If the domestic gag rule is enacted, it will leave these patients without access to life-saving services like birth control, cancer screenings, well-woman exams, and more.
We won’t stand for this! Join us on Wednesday, May 30th at 12:00 p.m. at Supreme Court of Ohio, 66 S. Civic Center Dr. (we will be directly in front of the building at the Coleman Point park) where we will host a large Rally and Press Conference.
Tell the Trump Administrative to stop attacking our health care. #NoGagRule #ProtectOurCare
