Action 1: Thank Gov Pritzker for rejecting the Trump Administration's gag rule

Governor Pritzker announced Thursday that the Illinois Department of Public Health would not accept Title X family planning funding while the Trump-Pence administration's gag rule is in effectMore than 100,000 people in Illinois rely on Title X for cancer screenings, birth control, STI testing and treatment, and other family planning services - and they deserve to know their doctor is giving them all the information needed about their health. The relationship between a patient and their doctor is based on trust and honesty; the gag rule violates that trust and puts patients’ health at risk. 

Governor Pritzker and the Illinois Department of Public Health have now joined Planned Parenthood of Illinois in declining the funds because of the unethical gag rule. Call and say thanks for standing up for the health of Illinois citizens!
