Trump-Pence Administration Censures Medical Professionals with Title X Gag Rule
We vehemently oppose the Trump-Pence Title X Gag rule.
MADISON — The Trump–Pence administration issued a Title X gag rule today. This rule would ban health care providers receiving Title X family planning funds from providing patients with all pregnancy counseling options or referrals for abortion care. This latest attack is strongly opposed by the medical community. This rule will take effect in 60 days if unchallenged.
“The Trump-Pence Title X Gag rule requires healthcare professionals to censure what medically accurate medical information women are allowed to receive during their visit. The last thing women need is for President Trump to play doctor and decide what information they are or are not entitled to hear at their visits.
“This is another patriarchal political stunt by the Trump-Pence administration that takes medical decision-making power away from women. This administration is playing a dangerous game with women’s health to satisfy their dwindling base.
“Wisconsin Alliance for Women’s Health strongly supports a woman’s right to make their own health decisions. We will continue to work to ensure all women have access to healthcare and access to medically accurate information. We vehemently oppose the Trump-Pence Title X Gag rule.”
The mission of the Wisconsin Alliance for Women’s Health (WAWH) is advance comprehensive women’s health in Wisconsin by engaging, educating, empowering and mobilizing individuals and organizations.
