Planned_parenthood_supportersOn Friday, the US House passed a bill to defund Planned Parenthood. It is not expected to pass in the Senate, but it looks like Republicans will try to now fast-track a 20-week abortion ban bill. Contact your Senators to OPPOSE ABORTION BANS via the Planned Parenthood action alert.

Planned Parenthood has been the target over the summer of a relentless and deceitful smear campaign by ideologues determined to destroy them, and in the process severely cripple American women’s access to family planning services and preventive care as well as safe and legal abortion care.

Bans are often the preferred policy solution for those who oppose the legal right to abortion (and often those same people oppose the legal right to contraception). But bans mean women will die. Bans treat pregnancies as if they are all alike and will progress smoothly. Women know that is not the case.

Politicians are not doctors. They should not be able to interfere in the relationship between a woman and her doctor. I’ll say it again, bans will mean women die. Contact your Senator TODAY to say you OPPOSE ABORTION BANS and SUPPORT PLANNED PARENTHOOD! In PA, call Senator Casey at Toll Free: (866) 802-2833 and Senator Toomey at (202) 224-4254.
