HHS Issues Proposed Rules for Title X Providers

A proposed rule from the Trump administration to block family planning providers who receive Title X funding from making abortion referrals would still allow those providers to discuss information about abortions with patients who request information.

Providers would not be allowed to share physical space or other resources, such as office staff, with an abortion provider. But they would be permitted—although not required—to provide “non-directive counseling” about abortion and provide a list of providers who offer comprehensive health services, including some which provide abortion services.
