Title X projects must not provide abortion as a method of family planning. Title X projects must offer pregnant clients the opportunity to be provided information and counseling regarding each of the following options: prenatal care and delivery; infant care, foster care, or adoption; and pregnancy termination. This sample policy template was updated in August 2022, is aligned with the Title X Final Rule, and can be modified with agency or site-specific information.
