They just voted to bar Planned Parenthood health centers from all federal funding for birth control, cancer screenings, HIV testing, and other lifesaving care.
Click here and sign Planned Parenthood's open letter and it will be sent every single representative in the House who voted for this rancid legislation and to every senator who must now stop it!
I went to bed mad as hell…
Anti-choice members took to the floor with lies and inaccurate information about Planned Parenthood in an attempt to justify legislation that would defund the healthcare provider’s Title X funding.
Pro-choice champions took to the floor and kept it real – defunding Planned Parenthood would prevent the delivery of life saving cancer screenings, STI and HIV/AIDS testing, and contraception and counseling services.
Trying to defund Planned Parenthood benefits no one, helps no one, and serves no one.
Actually doing it would have a devastating impact on communities across America.
I watched and listened as those elected to represent the people used the people’s time to pander to the far right and…well, it made me mad as hell.
This is about politicians playing political games with people’s lives.
If you want to reduce the STI infection rates in your community…if you support proven prevention programs – stand with Planned Parenthood.

Take action and tell Congress to hold up, step back and cease wasting the people’s time on bad policy and political games.
For 95 years those opposed to reproductive justice have tried to restrict access to reproductive health care…
…and for 95 years Planned Parenthood has been there, defending our rights and providing services.
95 years and counting.
