Republicans in Congress just said their top priority for 2017 is repealing Obamacare and stripping federal funding from Planned Parenthood.
Republicans are closer than ever to using government power to take away women’s health care. We need to stand with Planned Parenthood now more than ever.
Will you sign our petition in support of Planned Parenthood? And then, commit to join California Democrats and Planned Parenthood in Sacramento on January 17 for Capitol Pink Out Day!
Republicans and their allies on the hard right have been obsessed with defunding Planned Parenthood for years. President Obama vetoed a defunding bill last year, and Vice President-elect Mike Pence introduced a bill when he was in Congress in 2011.
The fact is that every dollar of federal funding goes to Planned Parenthood’s primary services like cervical cancer screenings, treating sexually transmitted infections, sexual health programs, and breast exams. If they are successful, Republicans will target poor women and families who depend on Planned Parenthood for basic health care.
As the LA Times said, “defunding Planned Parenthood hurts the healthcare system” and the 2.5 million people it serves every year with basic health care.1
California Democrats are standing with Planned Parenthood and with women’s health care, and we need you to stand with us.
