Sixth Circuit Upholds Biden Administration’s Title X Rule

Washington, D.C. – Today, in a victory for the nation’s family planning program, the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit declined to enjoin the Title X rule finalized by the US Department of Health and Human Services under the Biden administration in October 2021. The following is a statement from Clare Coleman, President & CEO of the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association.

“For the health and well-being of the people who need Title X, we are profoundly grateful that the Sixth Circuit has ruled to leave the Biden administration’s program rule in place. The 2021 program rule finalized by the Biden administration brings back critical quality standards and patient protections that had for decades helped define Title X as the gold standard for providing family planning care in this country. We are pleased that today’s ruling means that the work underway to repair our nation’s family planning program and restore access to care following damage created under the previous administration can continue.”
