Merger of Two Affiliates Brings Increased Strength, Opportunities for Reproductive Health Care Across Six States
Thanks to your support as of April 1, 2021 we are officially Planned Parenthood Great Northwest, Hawai‘i, Alaska, Indiana, Kentucky! The paperwork is signed, and teams, infrastructure, and systems in each state are moving in concert - all six states are humming along together, for the health of our many diverse communities.
This merger is a forward-looking move. Through it, Planned Parenthood can bolster the fight for reproductive rights in each state, recover from heavy damages wrought during the time of the Trump administration and the COVID-19 pandemic, and plug all Planned Parenthood health centers into the best medical technology and education — keeping Planned Parenthood poised to expand access and improve reproductive care at every opportunity.

Black women were openly admitted to women’s suffrage conferences in Indiana throughout the mid to late 1800s.
There are currently 17 cases about abortion that are just one step away from the Supreme Court, and any one of those cases could result in a significant impact on abortion access.
