Stop the defunding of Planned Parenthood

This petition had 80 supporters

I am a junior at Naugatuck High school. As a junior I must complete my Civic Action Project where I identify an issue or problem that matters to me, connect it to public policy, then take “civic actions” to try to impact my selected issue/problem. I chose to complete my Civic Action Project on stopping the defunding of Planned Parenthood. 

As of January 6th, 2017, “H.R. 354: Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2017” was assigned to a congressional committee.  If politicians in Congress succeed in “defunding” Planned Parenthood they would cause a national health disaster. Millions of Planned Parenthood patients would lose access to the preventive care they’ve relied on. Such as- cancer screenings; birth control; and STD testing and treatment, including HIV tests.
