Letter Opposing the Domestic Gag Rule

The UUWF and the UUA, among 110 faith and secular organizations, signed a letter May 16 to Secretary Alex Azar, Secretary of the Health and Human Services Department ,expressing grave objections to likely restrictive  new regulations guiding the Title X national family planning program by instituting a new, anti-choice domestic “gag rule.”

The proposed regs were issued May 22, and taken individually or as a whole would indeed “compromise the program’s continued success and interfere with Title X-supported providers’ commitment to offering high quality care.”

We are part of a Religious Advocates Working Group (RAWG), and are in the process together of coming up with the most impactful ways to weigh in on this development. The next few days and weeks we will be using social media and other means of witness urging DHHS to reject implementing any proposals that would restrict access to high quality affordable family planning services.

 

One position on the UUWF Board remains open, the VP for Funding Programs. The UUWF Board of Trustees is a dynamic, committed group of people. We meet in person twice a year, and attend General Assembly.
