Statement attributable to:

Susan R. Bailey, M.D.

American Medical Association President

“The AMA strongly applauds the Biden administration’s proposal to reverse the Title X ‘gag rule’—a rule that has inappropriately interfered with the patient-physician relationship and jeopardized safe access to reproductive care. This move brings us one step closer to restoring access to necessary care for millions of low-income and uninsured patients who depend on Title X for family planning services. We are pleased that the Biden administration shares our commitment to undoing this dangerous and discriminatory ‘gag rule,’ and look forward to its elimination through any means necessary to achieve the best outcome for patients and physicians —improving the health of our nation.”
