Tell the GOP: Stop Playing Politics and Put Women's Health First
Komen’s funding for Planned Parenthood allowed the organization to provide nearly 170,000 clinical breast exams and referrals for more than 6,400 mammograms over the past five years. This is preventative care that saves lives.
But under pressure from anti-choice groups and Congressional Republicans, Komen pulled its funding. And now tens of thousands of women could be at risk.
In this Congress, we’ve seen an all out assault on women from the GOP, and this is just the latest fallout.
This War on Women must stop – women’s lives are at stake. Tell the GOP to stop playing politics: it’s time to put women’s health first!
The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation announced that it is halting all funding for Planned Parenthood. This money was vital for Planned Parenthood -- it allowed the organization to provide tens of thousands of women with crucial preventative services like breast exams and mammograms.
With women’s health yet again on the chopping block, one group is smiling: the GOP. Republicans in Congress have tried to defund Planned Parenthood time after time -- and now they are relying on extremist outside groups to pressure organizations to stay away from Planned Parenthood.
Now, women all over the country are at risk because the GOP is putting its extreme agenda before women’s health care.
This War on Women must stop.
Tell the GOP to stop playing politics: it’s time to put women’s health first!
