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:

@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.

@HHSGov @transscribe @mlaurahuss In 2017, 12 percent of #TitleX patients were men, 54 percent of Title X patients were white, 22 percent Black, and 33 percent Latinx, meaning that a disproportionate number of Black and Latinx people are receiving services through Title X.

@HHSGov @transscribe @mlaurahuss The gag rule would require providers to physically separate their #TitleX practices from their abortion services, meaning everything from building new entrances and exits, to opening completely new facilities and hiring more staff.

@HHSGov @transscribe @mlaurahuss “This rule is really clearly designed to fundamentally dismantle this program and its originating purpose of expanding access to affordable birth control and reproductive health care," said Emily Stewart, vice president of public policy at @PPFA.
