Reproductive Rights

Woman's right to control her own reproduction, including access to contraception and abortion.

Another attack on healthcare

Right now, Congress is considering a provision to strip all federal funding from Planned Parenthood health centers.

This is truly an emergency for Planned Parenthood and women's health. Anti-choice leaders in the House are forcing a vote on Title X that would deny Planned Parenthood health centers every dime of federal funding. Without this funding, many people would lose access to their only source of basic health care.

Call now and tell Rep. Steve Stivers to vote NO. You can reach him at his Washington office, 202-225-2015, or District office in Columbus, 614-299-6415.

You may not realize the range of care that Planned Parenthood provides. Women and teens turn to them for birth control, cancer screenings, HIV testing, and other lifesaving care. For many (including people that you know who don't have adequate insurance coverage), Planned Parenthood clinics are the only source for these services.

The consequences of passing this bill are clear — and they would be devastating. More women would have unintended pregnancies. Cancer would develop, undiagnosed, in countless women. There is no doubt: cutting off millions of women from care they have no other way to afford places them at risk of sickness and death.

That's exactly what Congress is voting on right now. Speak out now — demand that Rep. Stivers vote NO.
