Statement on Senate Title X Vote to Allow States to Discriminate Against Abortion Providers

March 30, 2017

In reaction to the Senate vote on Title X to allow states to discriminate against abortion providers, Population Institute Policy Director Jennie Wetter issued the following statement.

“Allowing states to withhold Title X funding from abortion providers including Planned Parenthood will hurt successful family planning programs that have reduced teen pregnancy and improved women’s health. Our report shows that access to reproductive health varies widely across the country, and these clinics are critical to closing that gap. Congress’s actions target low income women, particularly women of color, and limit access to birth control across the country. Women no matter where they live should be able to access affordable health care and that includes abortion care.”
