Biden Administration Timeline: Strengthen Access to Family Planning Services Across the United States

EF Staff | Fact Sheets

After the damage caused by the previous administration, the Biden-Harris administration must do more than reverse harmful policies—it must also restore and advance rights. In that vein, Equity Forward developed a series of transition recommendations on family planning and reproductive rights. Many of these recommendations were developed in collaboration with broader coalitions supporting the sexual and reproductive health, rights and justice movements, as well as the broader human rights sphere and groups working to protect science and evidence-based policymaking.

Building on our timeline of policy changes within the Biden-Harris administration’s first 100 days, this fact sheet chronicles a timeline of the administration’s progress in strengthening access to family planning services across the United States. For example, we are tracking HHS’ rulemaking process to reverse Trump’s Title X domestic gag rule, which barred providers from referring patients for abortion care. Equity Forward is also tracking the Biden-Harris administration officials creating and implementing these policies. This research is featured on HHS Watch and Global Spotlight.

This fact sheet was originally published on June 30, 2021; its timeline is periodically updated.
