Oregon pulls out of Title X to protect patient access to care

OHA Director Patrick Allen last week announced that Oregon has ended its participation in the federal Title X grant program.

After the Oregon Health Authority declined to use federal dollars in the wake of new Trump administration rules that prevent health practitioners from discussing abortion with their patients, the federal Department of Health and Human Services directed Oregon to give up its Title X grant or face grant termination.

OHA Director Patrick Allen announced the decision, saying, "We cannot violate our own state laws that guarantee Oregon women full access to reproductive health services and prohibit any restriction on benefits, services or information regarding a woman’s right to choose to terminate a pregnancy."
