Crucial organization

Planned Parenthood is a trusted part of our everyday lives and our community, and has been for nearly 100 years.

They provide millions of women and men with basic, preventive care like lifesaving cancer screenings, birth control, STD testing and treatment, and well-woman exams — and I’m one of them. So is my daughter and many of our friends and neighbors.

Let’s talk about what defunding Planned Parenthood would really mean — cutting 2.7 million women, men and young people nationwide off from basic reproductive health care.

It’s time to stop false and manipulative allegations against one of this country’s greatest organizations and time to come together to ensure that women and families have what they need to plan for their futures.
