Right to choose under attack (again)

Millions of patients will be harmed by the Trump Administration's proposed gag rule that restricts doctors and nurses from discussing the full range of reproductive treatment options with their patients. I firmly believe that the government has no business dictating what health care providers can say to their patients.

Specifically, the administration wants to deny Title X funding to clinics whose staff members discuss abortion with their patients.

There's little mystery in Trump's end goal: defunding Planned Parenthood.

Sign the petition to protect women's health care rights.

Title X is a federal program that provides funding for clinics that provide services including cancer screenings, family planning, and sexually-transmitted disease treatment.

In many areas of the country, Title X clinics are the only game in town.

Join me in telling Trump to stand aside and allow medical professionals to do their jobs.
