The Hippocratic Oath states “Do no harm.” If medical providers follow a gag rule, deliberately withholding information about medical services, they are harming their patients.

The proposed law will force medical providers to act unethically. Please contact Rep. Don Young and ask him to not support the domestic gag rule for Title X.
