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

@TheDemocrats @DNC @DNCWarRoom issued their barking points and all the #Democrats issued their #dire #TitleX #PlannedParenthood #EndoftheWorld tweets.

Weird, really.

Congress imposed limitations on use of Title X funds. The regs were held constitutional by #SCOTUS 30 years ago.
Yet, according to nearly every #Dem spreading their lies and legs for the #presidentialnomination, the rule is "unethical" and women will lose access to contraception and basic health services.
@PPFA could continue using #TitleX funds.

They really could.

All that is required is that @PPFA segregate out its abortion and abortion referral programs and services from its #TitleX programs and services.

With the changes to #TitleX, access to contraception dramatically shifted for many low-income patients across this country this week and it's a complete shame. Access to healthcare is a human right, not a political game. Patients are not pawns.

Providers should not be gagged when it comes to sharing information and offering care to patients. We must be able to refer them to services they need based on their individual situations. This interferes with the provider-patient relationship.
nytimes.com/2019/08/19/opi…
The plan is to isolate providers offering contraception & abortion; stigmatize them out of existence. They're making it financially inaccessible for patients to go to their providers of choice for all of their reproductive healthcare. The goal is to further stigmatize abortion.

#Q, drops a nod 2an Anon's thoughts on how the #QResearch Board is run.
If you have worked 8chan, you know what this says, as relates to how the "Breads" are running at this time.
The Anon, & apparently Q, agree, it should remain as is.

In 1965, #SCOTUS struck down a law which banned the use of “any drug, medicinal article or instrument for the purpose of preventing conception” in Griswold v. Connecticut.
That means in my lifetime, we have progressed from outright bans on #birthcontrol to affordable, accessible contraceptive care.
And now, those same forces are trying to take us back. Make no mistake, the wave of attacks on birth control, abortion care, #TitleX, and the #ACA are all connected.

Right on cue, fiscally-solvent @PPFA is fundraising on proposed #TitleX changes by continuing to spread the lie that they're the "only" health care option for many women across the country—especially low-income women.

That’s not true.
Their employees COULD tell women they have access to dozens of higher-quality, comprehensive, FREE health care centers in their area—but they're instructed to tell women (many of whom have to drive long distances) they have no other resources but @PPFA.

Let's bust that myth.
Not only is @PPFA not the "only option" for women in need of health care—they're not even close to the best option. #titlex

OPA posted the final regulations for the Title X family planning program and they look very much like the proposed regulations. kff.org/womens-health-…

They don’t become official until they are published in the Federal Register. hhs.gov/opa/sites/defa…
The final reg blocks family planning providers from participating in the program if they provide or refer for abortion. This would effectively disqualify Planned Parenthood from the program & greatly reduce the existing Title X family planning provider network in many states.
The reg removes the requirement that family planning providers offer non-directive pregnancy options counseling that includes abortion, adoption and prenatal care referral to pregnant women. If offered, only MDs and Advance Practice Clinicians can provide this counseling.

The @HHSGov released its final version of new regulations for #TitleX programs, which bans federal family planning funds from going to health providers who perform or refer abortion services—amounting to a domestic gag rule, repro rights advocates say.

@HHSGov But what will be the effect of banning #TitleX family planning program, and why are the administration’s policies such a threat to reproductive health access? @transscribe and @mlaurahuss explain:

rewirenews.link/2H412Zd
@HHSGov @transscribe @mlaurahuss #TitleX clinics are the main source of medical care for 6 in 10 women who receive services there. Annual report data from HHS revealed that Title X centers served 4 million family planning patients in 2017. About 2/3 of these people live in poverty.
