NWLC signed an amicus brief filed on July 5, 2019 by the National Health Law Program in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in support of family planning clinics and organizations as well as state attorneys general that are challenging the Trump-Pence Administration’s final rules for the Title X family planning program. NWLC also signed a similar amicus brief filed on Aug. 5, 2019 in the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals.


NWLC signed these friend-of-the-court briefs to highlight how the final Title X rule would fundamentally change the nation’s only federally-funded family planning program into something completely unrecognizable and harmful to individuals across the country. The Law Center vigorously supports efforts to have this unlawful rule set aside and permanently enjoined.
