This bill would replace federal funds lost under the Trump-Pence gag rule with state funds, to sustain Maine's existing family planning network. Tens of thousands of patients rely on this network of 50 sites for affordable birth control, STI tests and treatment, cancer screenings, wellness exams, and more. Without a strong, statewide family planning network, these Mainers could lose access to affordable sexual and reproductive health care in their local communities.
