Tell Congress to Save Title X
The House Appropriations Committee has voted to ELIMINATE funding for the Title X family planning program. For almost 50 years, Title has provided vital sexual + reproductive health services to millions of low-income and uninsured patients across the Country. Without Title X, many patients would have no access to contraceptive care, pelvic and breast cancer screenings, STD testing or other sensitive services. Contact your Member of Congress and tell him/her to save Title X and restore funding for the next fiscal year.
Help Protect Freedom of Choice in Medi-Cal Family Planning Providers
Current federal law allows Medi-Cal patients to get family planning care from any willing Medi-Cal provider, allowing greater patient choice and access to time sensitive services. The hostile environment on the federal level toward reproductive rights has put the future of the federal provision at risk. SB 743 seeks to protect access in California by codifying the federal free choice of provider provision into California law.
