(U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit, November 30, 2023) The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals struck down aspects of the Biden Administration’s regulations related to Title X funding for family planning clinics. Per Congress, Title X funding may not be used for abortion care. The decision, applicable only in Ohio, revives the Trump Administration’s policy requiring clinics to maintain “strict physical and financial separation” if they offer contraception and other services through Title X and also offer abortion care with other funding. That rule requires that the differently funded services be provided in different buildings, by separate staff, and using distinct billing systems. The Court did not strike down the Biden Administration rule that Title X funded clinics refer patients to abortion providers if the patient requests abortion care. Read the full Opinion here.
