Title X Legislation was originally passed in the early 70's and stated that women's reproductive health care should be available to all regardless of age, race, or monetary status. It also setup "Title X" Birth Control Clinics that provided women with low-cost contraceptives as well as medical screenings. Title X has been very successful. Over the years it has aided in decreasing pregnancy rates as well as reducing the spread of AIDS and STDs. However, what worked in the simplistic age of the 70's is not quite as effective in the transitional period of the 90's. The new bill limiting the use of such clinics was co-sponsored by Congressmen Don Manzullo, Ernest Istook, and James Barcia.
