The Court was careful to distinguish Title X regulations from a more general prohibition on abortion counseling:
Assuming that these restrictions are not modified by Congress, clinics providing Title X services should track this language to explain the limitations on their services. Every woman should be told specifically that abortions cannot be discussed as a birth control option and that she will have to seek that information elsewhere. While the clinic personnel cannot refer women to abortion counselors, they can make sure the women know that the Title X clinic is not a full-service facility and that advice should be sought elsewhere. Information about abortion counseling can be provided outside the clinic as long as it is not provided by clinic personnel. If the clinic is in a multipurpose building, a separate office with separate funding could be setup next to the family planning clinic to provide abortion counseling.Rust v. Sullivan. 111 S. Ct. 1759 (1991).
