Family Planning supporters at state capitol

Posted

A group known as Harrisburg Stands with Planned Parenthood gathered on the steps of the state Capitol Sept. 15 to “tell Congress they must pass the Title X Protection to safeguard access to health care for the 4 million patients covered by the Title X program,” according to event information.

Title X is a federal grant program that provides individuals with comprehensive family planning and related preventive health services. Its overall purpose is to promote positive birth outcomes and healthy families by allowing individuals to decide the number and spacing of their children.
