President Trump Signs Measure Reversing Obama Era Rule Protecting Women’s Access to Basic Health Care

President Trump today signed a measure which rescinds an Obama-era rule protecting health care for patients who rely on federal funding for family planning services like birth control and cancer screening through the Title X program. The U.S. House of Representatives voted to rescind the rule earlier this year and the Senate narrowly passed the measure last month In overturning the rule, Congress and President Trump have paved the way for state politicians to block people from getting care they need from highly qualified reproductive health care providers.

U.S. Senate Votes to Reverse Obama Administration Rule Protecting Women’s Access to Basic Health Care

By a vote of 51-50—with Vice President Mike Pence breaking the tie--the U.S. Senate voted today to rescind a rule protecting health care for patients who rely on federal funding for family planning services like birth control and cancer screening through the Title X program. The U.S. House of Representatives voted to rescind the rule-- which was issued by the Obama Administration in December 2016--last month. In voting to rescind the rule, Congress is paving the way for state politicians to block women from getting care they need from highly qualified reproductive health care providers. Women’s health champions in the Senate made a strong showing of opposition to this bill, with two dozen speaking out on the Senate floor in support of access to reproductive health care.
