Engel Condemns Trump’s Domestic Gag Rule

Congressman Eliot Engel issued the following statement:

“When you visit your doctors, you trust that they are providing you with all of the facts and unbiased counsel about your health. The Trump Administration wants to change that. 

“They have unveiled a policy that will bar providers that specialize in reproductive health, like Planned Parenthood, from even providing information about abortion to patients if those providers receive federal family planning funds. 

“Denying people comprehensive, unbiased information about all of their health care options is unconscionable. Every person deserves to have complete information when making decisions about their health. This latest attack on health care doesn’t just threaten Americans’ well-being—it gets in between patient and provider, where the Trump Administration has no business being.”
