HHS to Propose Revised Title X Regulations Next Month

On March 18, the HHS Office of Population Affairs published a press release with an update on its review of Trump administration Title X rules.

President Biden issued an executive order on Jan. 28 directing the HHS to review the 2019 "Protect Life" Title X rule issued by the Trump administration. That rule barred Title X grant recipients from offering abortion, co-locating with organizations that offer abortions, or referring patients for abortions. That executive order asked the HHS to “consider, as soon as practicable, whether to suspend, revise, or rescind, or publish for notice and comment proposed rules suspending, revising, or rescinding, those regulations.”

In last week's press release, the HHS Office of Population Affairs announced that it would issue a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking no later than April 15, 2021.
