Mayor Pete Buttigieg on the Title X Domestic Gag Rule

On June 20, 2019, Buttigieg responded to the enactment of the Title X gag rule, which prevents organizations that perform abortions or offer abortion referrals from receiving federal funding under Title X, tweeting:

“The Title X ‘gag rule’ flies in the face of freedom. This decision threatens health care for millions, especially low-income Americans who depend on this funding for preventive services, primary care, and treatment. We need comprehensive, unbiased care. We must [protect Title X].”
