Dear Friend,

I cherish Thanksgiving.  It’s such an important time for family and friends, and reflecting on the precious things dear to us.  At this time of Thanksgiving, I am so very grateful for

  • The tens of thousands of patients we get to serve each year

  • The Pence Amendment being defeated by the Senate

  • The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services requiring health insurers cover birth control pills with no co-pay

  • Community partners who help us reach new populations for our educational programs and health services

  • Mississippi citizens defeating the “personhood” amendment

  • The tens of thousands of educators and teens we get to train each year

  • Our loyal, pro-choice legislators

  • A passionate, dedicated staff who always are working for our patients

  • Journalists who tell the true story of Planned Parenthood’s work

  • Donors like you who tirelessly advocate for Planned Parenthood and our mission!

To borrow a phrase from John Tierney in the NY Times, I have the “attitude of gratitude”, and hope you do too.

Many thanks for your continued support.
