Matsui Denounces President Trump’s Title X Domestic Gag Rule

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Doris Matsui (D-CA) released the following statement after the Department of Health and Human Services announced President Trump’s proposed rule to gut Title X, which provides funding for family planning services:

“This outrageous rule takes us backwards to a time when women couldn’t make decisions about their own reproductive healthcare. The rule restricts access to family planning services like birth control at local health care providers that people know and trust, and prevents women from having full information about all of their options for reproductive healthcare. That’s unacceptable.”

Matsui joined with over 200 members of Congress in a letter expressing opposition to the rule on May 15, 2018.
