INDIANAPOLIS – Tomorrow, as part of an unprecedented increase in nationwide grassroots activism, the Health Access and Privacy Alliance (HAPA) will be hosting a press conference urging Indiana's state and federal elected officials to stop playing politics with Planned Parenthood and women's health. Across the country, and in Indiana, people do not want to see their reproductive rights under attack. 

When politicians say they want to defund Planned Parenthood, what they're really saying is they want to block millions across the country and nearly 50,000 Hoosiers from access to basic health care – cancer screenings, birth control, well-woman exams – that they depend on.

What: Health Access and Privacy Alliance Press Conference


State Senator Karen Tallian

State Representative Linda Lawson

Reba Boyd Wooden, President, Health Access and Privacy Alliance

Dr. Tracey Wilkinson, Physicians for Reproductive Health

Haylee Brannon, Planned Parenthood Patient


When: Thursday, February 23, 2017 at 9 a.m.


Where: Indiana Statehouse, 3rd Floor, South Atrium

200 West Washington Street

Indianapolis, IN 46204


Why: To highlight the negative impact on Hoosiers if Planned Parenthood is defunded.
