Planned Parenthood deliver vital reproductive health care, sex education, and information to millions of people worldwide.
Today (4 May 2017), by a narrow vote of 217 to 213, Paul Ryan and his out-of-touch allies forced through their bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act and “defund” Planned Parenthood health centers. The Senate vote is next. Now more than ever, Planned Parenthood needs our support. I relied on this organization when I was in my 20s and had no healthcare – millions of young people and adults do, especially women, and oftentimes this is the only affordable option for those with sexual health needs. Planned Parenthood is a safe place and a vital healthcare resource for teenagers and young adults in America; our children. Together we can help ensure the stability of this important public charity, during these times when the future of healthcare in the US hangs in the balance.
