Condemning Title X Gag Rule

Portland, Maine, February 22, 2019
“The Trump administration has shown it will stop at nothing to undermine the health care of low-income Americans and unravel the reproductive rights of women."
PORTLAND, MAINE – Today, Congresswoman Chellie Pingree (D-Maine) condemned the Trump administration’s actions to undermine the mission of Title X, the nation’s only family planning program which provides health care access to tens of thousands of Mainers:
 
“The Trump administration has shown it will stop at nothing to undermine the health care of low-income Americans and unravel the reproductive rights of women. If this domestic gag rule is implemented, it will directly harm 22,000 Mainers who rely on Title X for basic preventive health care like cancer screenings and STD tests. Our state can’t afford to lose these services, nor can rural communities across the nation. This decision is rooted in ideology, not evidence-based care, and I will fight its implementation.”
