In response to the Ninth Circuit’s failure to intervene to halt the Trump administration’s unethical Title X gag rule, forcing Planned Parenthood to pull out of the Title X program, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue issued the following statement:

“By forcing Planned Parenthood out of the Title X program, Trump is fulfilling his debt to the anti-choice movement — a vocal, extreme minority in this country– for their work to put him in the White House. Millions of women and families who rely on Planned Parenthood for a full range of reproductive healthcare will be forced to pay the price for political payback by the Trump administration and their reckless Title X gag rule. The decision about when and with whom to have a family is one of the most personal and important decisions a person will ever make, and it’s definitely one that should be free from political interference.”   


NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates and chapters are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all. For more than 50 years, NARAL has worked to guarantee that every woman has the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. Since 1969, NARAL has made history, grown to over 2 million members, and met the moments that have defined this fight with action, power and freedom. In recognition of its work defending our constitutional right to choose, Fortune Magazine described NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”

Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
