                                Recent Developments

                                Jul 7, 2024 - Moderate Sales Growth Expected
                                • Family planning industry sales are forecast to increase at a 5.1% compounded annual rate from 2024 to 2028, faster than the growth of the overall economy, according to Inforum and the Interindustry Economic Research Fund, Inc. Family planning center industry employment and average wages for nonsupervisory employees increased slightly during the first quarter of 2024, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.
                                • Fewer birth control prescriptions were filled in states that passed the most restrictions on abortion after the US Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade than were filled in other states, according to a study published Wednesday in the journal JAMA Network Open. Roe v. Wade was the 1973 decision in which the Supreme Court ruled that the US Constitution generally protected a right to have an abortion. Researchers concluded that the decrease in prescriptions filled from March 2021 through October 2023 is likely attributable to the closure of family planning clinics and confusion about which options remain legal.
                                • The Biden administration released its fiscal year (FY) 2025 budget proposal, requesting $390 million for the Title X family planning program. It will be the largest appropriation in the program’s history if Congress approves the request. The Biden administration requested $512 million for the program for FY 2024 but $286.5 million was approved by Congress. Major FY 2025 proposal details include providing level funding for the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program at $101 million, extending the mandatory evidence-based comprehensive Personal Responsibility Education Program at $75 million, eliminating funding for the discretionary Sexual Risk Avoidance Program (also known as abstinence only), and removing the Hyde Amendment, which blocks coverage of abortion for people with federally funded insurance plans such as Medicaid.
                                • Some abortion opponents are seeking ways to limit the ability of residents of states with total bans to access abortion in other states, according to nonprofit news organization The 19th. Clinics in states such as Florida, Illinois, New Mexico, Kansas, and Colorado — all close to states with near-total abortion bans — have reported major increases in the number of patients, with the majority often coming from out of state, according to The 19th. Opponents are said to be relying on new legal strategies and targeting people who assist those who are traveling to facilities in other states. Alabama’s attorney general has declared that his office can use criminal conspiracy laws to prosecute people who helped residents leave the state for an abortion but he has not leveraged that authority, leaving the legal basis untested. Some counties in Texas have passed ordinances that would outlaw using their roads to drive someone out of state for an abortion. These measures would largely be enforced by civil lawsuit rather than criminal punishment.
