Acting A.G. Underwood Joins 20 Attorneys General In Urging National Injunction To Protect Women's Access To Family Planning


More Than 4 Million Americans and Hundreds of Thousands of New Yorkers Rely on Title X Funding, Which is Currently Being Threatened by Trump-Pence Administration

NEW YORK – Acting Attorney General Barbara D. Underwood joined a coalition of 20 Attorneys General in filing an amicus brief in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in support of a nationwide preliminary injunction that would block a recent attempt by the Trump-Pence administration to reduce access to Title X, the nation’s family planning program. Title X provides family planning services, including birth control and other critical preventive care, to uninsured and underinsured patients. The new set of requirements put forward by the Trump administration would jeopardize the lives and the health of millions of low-income women and families across the United States by threatening funding for birth control, sexually transmitted disease testing, breast and cervical cancer screenings, and infertility treatment.
