Austin, TX – Today, the US Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) released its final rule for the Title X program. The following is a statement from Matt Thompson, Interim Title X Director at Every Body Texas, the statewide Title X administrator.
“We are deeply grateful that the Biden administration has rescinded the 2019 Title X rule today and made important improvements to a public health program that more than 150,000 Texans rely on. The final rule demonstrates that the Biden administration is deeply committed to improving health equity in our nation’s family planning program so that all people can access safe, high-quality, unbiased sexual and reproductive healthcare they need.”
Every Body Texas is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring that every person in Texas can access safe, unbiased, high-quality sexual and reproductive healthcare regardless of identity, income, or circumstances. As the statewide Title X grantee for Texas, Every Body Texas distributes millions of dollars per year to a network of 35 healthcare agencies who operate over 170 clinics across the state. This funding is critical to ensuring clinics stay open and deliver much needed care to more than 150,000 people in Texas every year—such as helping them access birth control, decide if and when to have a family, get screened for certain cancers, and much more.
