NFPRHA, Cedar River Clinics, and Washington AG Ferguson Announce Plans to File Lawsuits Challenging Family Planning Rule

Seattle, WA – Today, the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association (NFPRHA) joined Washington State Attorney General, Bob Ferguson and NFPRHA member Cedar River Clinics to announce NFPRHA's intention to file a lawsuit challenging the administration's recently released draft final rule. 

"The Title X rule is designed to destroy our nation’s family planning provider network and deprive millions of poor and low-income people of access to the contraception and other preventive health care they need,” said Clare Coleman, President & CEO of the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association, a national organization representing publicly funded family planning providers and administrators.

“NFPRHA is grateful for Attorney General Ferguson’s commitment to protecting the Title X program for Washingtonians and individuals across the country, and is honored to work with the Attorney General as NFPRHA and Cedar River Clinics also file a legal challenge against the administration’s unlawful rule.”
