Congresswoman Kelly Slams Domestic Gag Rule Saying, “Get the Government Out of the Doctor’s Office”

May 18, 2018
Press Release

Congresswoman Robin Kelly, a leading health advocate in the U.S. House of Representatives, released this statement of the President Trump’s dangerous ‘Domestic Gag Rule’ that threatens the healthcare of millions of Americans:

“Today’s decision by the Trump Administration is dangerous and unconstitutional. All Americans have a right to access reproductive healthcare and health information without government interference.

This policy has nothing to do with the health of America’s families and everything to do with this White House’s extremist policies that continue to put American lives at risk.

Let me be clear, this policy violates our most basic freedoms and should be declared unconstitutional. More than that, it’s simply wrong to enact policies that will prevent people from accessing healthcare and living healthier lives by limiting access to information.

It’s past time for the government to get out of the doctor’s office.”
