Pro-Life Title X
Enforced conscience laws, a life-affirming approach and a new rule are opening the door to pro-life & faith-based organizations.
Final Title X Rule Issued
The new rule benefits:
• Patients seeking family planning services from health professionals and organizations with life-affirming values.
• Taxpayers who do not want their tax dollars to fund the abortion industry.
• Health professionals and organizations who could use federal funding to help provide services for family planning.
Conscience protections enforced
No required abortion referral or counseling*
New funding partners sought
Parents involved in decisions about children
"Family planning" more broadly defined
The rule will help stop abuses by the abortion industry and others who under the old rule may have:
Used fungible federal funds to expand their abortion operations and did not physically separate abortion facilities and operations from Title X funds.
Used federal funds to lobby for, advocate for or routinely refer patients for abortion.
Declined to ask patients about or report suspected cases of abuse such as human trafficking, child abuse, child molestation, sexual abuse, rape, incest or intimate partner violence.
Not effectively involved parents and families in the healthcare of minor children.
*To apply for any exemption related to an abortion-related concern in prior Title X policies in effect until the new rule takes effect, contact the HHS Office for Civil Rights (Toll Free Call Center: 1-800-368-1019).

Practically speaking, the new rule now opens the door to many more health organizations, which should translate into more and better options for patient care. Many life-affirming, full-service health organizations nationwide had been shut out of the program by the previous administration's abortion-related requirements.
