The Nixon administration may be infamous for many things, but we owe a debt of gratitude to the deceased Republican for signing Title X into law. Nearly echoing Marx – who championed woman's rights as the surest sign of social liberalization – Nixon believed that “no American woman should be denied access to family planning assistance because of her economic condition." Given today's economic climate we would imagine Title X funding to be secure, especially in light of the services it provides: information and access to contraception and related health care needs for low-income men and women. But instead this vital funding is on the brink of annihilation by House Republicans who stand opposed to it because of a flight of fancy. Directly from the GOP's website, they affirm their stance against “using public revenues to promote or perform abortion and [they] will not fund organizations which advocate it.” And thus Title X, which does NOT provide funding for abortions, is up against the wall because groups which receive these monies are also frequently pro-choice. It is ironic that the same piece of legislation which was conceived by Republicans is about to be aborted by them – for the most ridiculous of rationals.
