Rust v. Sullivan, 500 U.S. 173 (1991), (commonly referred to as the "gag rule") was a ruling made by the United States Supreme Court to outlaw government funded family-planning services from discussing, referring, or advising a patient on abortion. This ruling was made after the Department of Health and Human Services issued regulations (1988) barring federally-funded services from engaging in conversation about abortion services or information with their patients.

  • Rust v. Sullivan, 500 U.S. 173 (1991), (commonly referred to as the "gag rule") was a ruling made by the United States Supreme Court to outlaw government funded family-planning services from discussing, referring, or advising a patient on abortion. This ruling was made after the Department of Health and Human Services issued regulations (1988) barring federally-funded services from engaging in conversation about abortion services or information with their patients. Many physicians and clinics challenged the decision, arguing that it violated physician's first amendment rights and women's right to an abortion (Roe V. Wade). The controversy was sent to the United States Supreme Court where a five-four verdict maintained the original regulation, arguing that it was within bounds for the government to "fund one activity to the exclusion of another."
