This week, NAPAWF, @NLIRH, and @BlackWomensRJ sent a letter to Congress demanding they protect #TitleX.

"Cutting off Planned Parenthood and other providers from this essential program further threatens women of color's access to essential preventive health services" @PPact
@NLIRH @BlackWomensRJ @PPact "This harmful and unlawful regulation denies people of color the ability to make healthy and fully-informed decisions for their bodies and their families, undermining individual agency and bodily autonomy." #TitleX @PPact
@NLIRH @BlackWomensRJ @PPact "Communities of color already face significant barriers to affordable health care services, and the implementation of the Title X rule poses a significant and immediate threat to these critical services." #ProtectX

Yesterday, the Trump administration forced us out of the Title X program, the nation's only dedicated program for affordable birth control and reproductive health care.

I want to tell you what this means. Thread ⤵️
President Trump is bullying health care providers into withholding abortion information from their patients. If providers are forced to refer to *only non-abortion services,* they aren't providing unbiased counseling as Congress mandates.

That's illegal.
Not only is this illegal, it violates medical ethics. In fact, major medical associations like @acog @AmerMedicalAssn @ANANursingWorld and public health experts like former US Surgeon General @vivek_murthy oppose the gag rule.…

For the first time in nearly 50 years, Planned Parenthood is being forced out of the Title X program, meaning people across the country who are already struggling to make ends meet might not be able to access the care they need.

Absolutely devastating.

It’s not just Planned Parenthood. Seven states and the only Title X grantee in Maine have also made clear they CANNOT stay in the program under the gag rule — together with Planned Parenthood, they serve nearly HALF the patients in the program. #ProtectX
Trump’s gag rule is destroying the nation’s decades-old program for affordable birth control and reproductive health care. While the Trump administration may have given up on you, we NEVER will — we’re doing everything we can to make sure patients don’t lose care. #IStandWithPP

Today, the Trump admin is forcing us out of the Title X program — our nation's program focused on family planning, of which we serve 40% of patients. This is a *direct attack* on Planned Parenthood and on our health and rights, and we will not stand for it. #StandWithPP #ProtectX
We’re working to make sure that all patients can still get the health care they need. Contact your local health center to find out how much a service costs and ask if there are other ways to get your care covered:
We aren’t throwing in the towel & we won’t give up on our patients. Being forced out of Title X won't stop us from referring for or performing abortions, prescribing birth control, or any of our other services. Our doors are open and we are fighting against the gag rule.

“Women for Trump” launched today, and the hypocrisy is stunning.

Since taking office, the Trump admin has systematically taken away our health and rights — policies that hurt all women, including his own supporters.

We have the receipts. Thread ⤵️…
The administration has implemented the Title X “gag” rule, making it impossible for millions of patients to get birth control or preventive care from Planned Parenthood through the Title X program. #ProtectX…
They’ve repeatedly tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which would roll back the significant gains people of color have made in being able to access health care.…

We are going to have a frank talk about women’s rights, boycotts and big tents. The vast majority of Americans and the vast majority of Democrats support Roe v Wade and the autonomy and liberty of patents to choose the size and timing of their families. We must #StopTheBans. 1/
People are mobilizing on Tuesday May 21 to rally support for women’s rights and patients’ reproductive justice. (yes, trans and non-binary people can get pregnant too - be inclusive!) We must show support for patients and doctors criminalized under these extreme laws. Sign up! 2/
Sadly, one of our rallies must be in #Louisiana where a Democratic Governor pledged to sign a bill banning abortion rights even in the case of rape and incest. It’s awful and people should ask @LouisianaGov to give patients the same choice his wife had! 3/…

BREAKING: The Trump administration strips Title X funding from Planned Parenthood in Wisconsin, Hawaii, North Carolina, Virginia, and southwest Ohio, putting health care at risk for 40,000+ patients — in a coordinated attack to block patients from coming to Planned Parenthood.
This comes on the heels of the administration’s finalized Title X gag rule, which bans providers in the Title X program from referring their patients for abortion. If the rule goes into effect on May 3, access to care will be at risk for 4 million people. #ProtectX
In many counties, Planned Parenthood health centers are the *only* places that provide people struggling to make ends meet the reproductive care they need.

tl;dr: Planned Parenthood health centers are irreplaceable.
