President-elect Joe Biden campaigned on restoring the Title X family planning program that has been diminished under the Trump Administration. The Biden Administration will likely take executive action to reverse the Trump Administration regulations and restore access to Title X funded services to parts of the country that have lost federal support as a result of the regulations. This executive action could also restore the standards of care that were previously required by the Title X program, including provision of abortion referrals when requested and non-directive pregnancy options counseling, as well as allowing family planning sites to provide abortion services with non-federal funding. New regulations would also have an impact on the ongoing litigation challenging the Trump Administration regulations.

This analysis reviews the impact the Trump Administration regulations have had on the Title X network and discusses the likely impact and limitations of the Biden Administration’s potential actions.
