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.
