On Sunday, the Seattle
Seahawks and Denver Broncos will take each other on. If the teens of
Seattle and Colorado (no data on Denver were available) were to have an

X is a federal grant program meant to meet the family planning needs of
low-income people, from contraception to related preventive health
care, such as STI testing and breast and cervical cancer screening. 60
percent of women who use Title X clinics, in fact, identify those as
their regular source of medical care. In this brief, we describe how
these women's health needs differ from those of other women, to enable
providers to offer better-targeted services.
