Engel on Trump Administration Title X 'Gag Rule'

Engel on Trump Administration Title X 'Gag Rule'

Washington D.C.—Congressman Eliot L. Engel issued the following statement and the Trump Administration’s newly proposed rule for Title X:

“The Trump Administration continues its attack on women’s health care with this disgraceful Title X ‘gag rule.’ This rule will hurt millions of low-income Americans by making it far more difficult to obtain medical care and is designed in no small part to cut off federal funding for Planned Parenthood, which for many women—and men—is the only place they can receive care. The GOP has made it clear when it comes to women’s reproductive health they will not stop until their radical, neoconservative agenda is met. It is incumbent upon us to make sure that never happens. This rule will be challenged in the courts and challenged by Democrats in the House.”
