Title X changes impact abortion providers

Published August 29, 2019

PBS Frontline quotes Gretchen Ely, professor of social work, in an article on how changes to Title X funding are impacting Planned Parenthood, which has pulled out of the program, and other clinics. Among the changes: doctors will be forbidden from referring patients directly to an abortion provider. “All the clinics that receive this Title X money are going to be faced with whether or not they’re going to let the gag rule stand and take the grant money, which I’m sure is contrary to their mission, or are they going to drop the Title X and no longer be able to serve patients,” Ely said. “It’s a terrible choice for a health care provider.”
