Protect Women's Health Access!

On March 30, 2017, despite heavy opposition, Vice President Pence broke a tie in the Senate, passing a bill that gives states permission to withhold federal family planning funds from Planned Parenthood. On April 13th, out of the view of cameras, President Trump signed it.
Though federal law already prohibits taxpayer dollars from funding abortions, this devastating bill reverses an Obama-era regulation that prohibited states from withholding funds from abortion providers since the majority of their work includes other family-planning and medical care.
Fully 97% of Planned Parenthood's services are for general healthcare, including STD prevention, birth control counseling, breast exams, yearly checkups, and more.
This bill will have a devastating effect on the more than 2.5 million women and men who visit PP health centers each year for health care, education, information, and disease prevention.
President Trump and members of Congress, don't cut aid to Planned Parenthood!
