SOUNDBITE (English) Melanie Newman, Planned Parenthood Federation of America:"Planned Parenthood has been forced out of the Title X program because the Trump administration has instituted its unethical and we believe illegal gag rule which would force our health care providers to limit the information that they provide our patients and not provide the full range of medical information that is available to them. And we won't put our health care providers in that position and so we've been forced out of the program."ASSOCIATED PRESS - AP CLIENTS ONLYIndianapolis - 20 August 20193.

SOUNDBITE (English) Melanie Newman, Planned Parenthood Federation of America:"The domestic gag rule that the Trump administration has implemented would require doctors to not provide abortion referrals or information about abortion to patients who are requesting it and that is limiting the information and it violates the medical ethics of our healthcare providers and Planned Parenthood is not going to put our healthcare providers in that position."

SOUNDBITE (English) Melanie Newman, Planned Parenthood Federation of America:"It's going to make it very difficult to access the care of that Title X has provided for the last 50 years and that includes cancer screenings, STI screenings, birth control. It's gonna be harder to access birth control in this country. Planned Parenthood's doors are open. We are going to continue providing the care that our patients are seeking but it is going to make it much more difficult and that's what the Trump administration wants." ASSOCIATED PRESS - AP CLIENTS ONLY Washington, D.C. - 20 August 20197. SOUNDBITE (English) Melanie Newman, Planned Parenthood Federation of America:"The Title X program is the nation's affordable reproductive health care program and it is for the last 50 years provided access to health care for people in low-income communities, rural areas and primarily people of color. And people of color, low-income communities, rural areas should have the same access to health care as everyone else. Your health care shouldn't be determined by your zip code." ASSOCIATED PRESS - AP CLIENTS ONLYIndianapolis - 20 August 20198. Various exteriors and signage at Planned Parenthood clinic in Indianapolis (PARTIALLY COVERS PREVIOUS SOUNDBITE)STORYLINE:Planned Parenthood said Monday it's pulling out of the federal family planning program rather than abide by a new Trump administration rule prohibiting clinics from referring women for abortions.The organization's nationwide network of health centers would remain open and strive to make up for the loss of federal money. But many low-income women who rely on Planned Parenthood services may be forced to delay or go without care, according to Planned Parenthood leadership.Melanie Newman, Senior Vice President of Communications and Culture for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America says "Planned Parenthood has been forced out of the Title X program because the Trump administration has instituted its unethical and we believe illegal gag rule." Enforcement of the new Title X rule marks a major victory for a key part of President Donald Trump's political base — religious conservatives opposed to abortion. They have been campaigning relentlessly to "defund Planned Parenthood" because — among its varied services — it is the largest abortion provider in the United States, and they viewed the Title X grants as an indirect subsidy.Newman said, "It's going to make it very difficult to access the care of that Title X has provided for the last 50 years and that includes cancer screenings, STI screenings, birth control."About 4 million women are served nationwide under the Title X program, which distributes $260 million in family planning grants to clinics. Planned Parenthood says it has served about 40% of patients, many of them African American and Hispanic. Family planning funds cannot be used to pay for abortions.===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
