It also prohibits health care providers from performing or referring patients to have abortions at the same facility receiving Title X dollars, regardless of the funding source. Lesser amounts are earmarked for partner groups, such as Planned Parenthood.
ABC News reported that the proposal is considered a so-called "gag rule" by pro-choice advocates, saying "it's the most concrete step that the administration has taken to limit abortion access since President Trump's inauguration".

Enacted in 1970, the Title X program now provides 4 million low-income people access to reproductive health services, including birth control, STI testing, mammograms and cancer screenings. Each year, roughly $2 million in federal funds are given to the organization for health care services.
"Every woman should be able to access reproductive health care when and where she needs it", Mills said in a statement. About $2 million in Title X funds are in jeopardy under the gag rule, Mills said. "Congress must take action to overturn the final rule".
