How Planned Parenthood's Withdrawal From Title X Impacts Arizona Patients
Planned Parenthood said it will withdraw from Title X, the federal program that administers millions of dollars for contraceptives and other family planning services that largely goes to low-income people across the country.
The decision comes in the wake of a "gag rule" that could interfere with the doctor-patient relationship. The rule bars organizations receiving Title X funds from providing abortions or referrals to other abortion providers except in limited cases, like rape or incest.
The rule was challenged in court — and legal challenges could continue as the rule takes effect. But what happens now?
