Eshoo Statement on Planned Parenthood’s Withdrawal from Title X

August 19th, 2019

PALO ALTO, CA — Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo (D-CA), Chairwoman of the Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee, released the following statement regarding Planned Parenthood’s withdrawal from Title X due to the Trump Administration’s unacceptable gag rule:

“The Trump Administration is reaping the discord they sow. By forcing a gag rule on health care providers that use Title X funding, the Administration is robbing nearly 1.5 million women of affordable, quality, and lifesaving care. Title X is the only federal grant program dedicated to providing family planning services to low-income and otherwise underserved communities. The Administration’s ill-begotten rules target and will hurt the most vulnerable women in our country.

“I applaud Planned Parenthood for their unfailing commitment to provide the best care and medical counsel available to their patients. Unlike the Trump Administration, they prioritize patients over politics.”
