NFPRHA Petitions Full Ninth Circuit for Reconsideration of Order that Allowed Title X Rule to Take Effect

WASHINGTON, DC – The National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association (NFPRHA) filed a petition tonight for full Ninth Circuit reconsideration of an en banc panel’s July 11 order that has allowed the Title X rule to go into effect while the en banc panel rehears the stay of the preliminary injunction. The following is a statement from Clare Coleman, President & CEO of NFPRHA:

“Earlier this month, a Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling allowed the unlawful Title X rule to go into effect, despite previous decisions by three district courts to block the rule. As part of NFPRHA’s fight to protect the Title X family planning program, with a nearly 50-year track record of public health success, we’re asking the full circuit court to give proper effect to its July 3 order that granted the rehearing. Doing so will protect the longstanding family planning provider network and its patients from suffering immediate and harmful consequences of the rule.”
