Stop Anti-Choice Efforts to Eliminate Family Planning Funding
Anti-choice representatives in Congress have introduced legislation that would eliminate funding for Title X, the nation's family planning program. This bill would cut off funding that provides women with birth control, cancer screenings, HIV testing, and more.
Title X provides care that saves lives — and anti-choice politicians want to end it entirely.
Help protect Planned Parenthood and the women, men, and teens who rely on the organization's hundreds of health centers by contacting your representative and telling him or her to vote "NO" on any attempt to cut off family planning funding.
I strongly support Planned Parenthood health centers and the essential health services, including family planning, they provide to hundreds of thousands of women, men, and teens every day.
I urge you to vote against any attempt to eliminate Title X funding. The House version of the FY11 Continuing Resolution would cut millions of American women off from birth control, cancer screenings, HIV tests, and other lifesaving care. This outrageous attack would have a devastating impact on the women, men, and teens in our community. Planned Parenthood serves over one third of all Title X patients.
At a time when so many Americans are struggling to afford basic health care, Congress should be focused on expanding access -- not attacking the nation's leading sexual and reproductive health care provider and advocate. Protect Title X -- vote NO on the FY11 Continuing Resolution.
