Planned Parenthood is committed to ensuring women, men and teens have access to the full continuum of reproductive health services.
Every year we face outrageous attacks on reproductive health services in the Missouri and Kansas legislatures and in Congress. The Public Affairs Department works year-round to defend reproductive health from anti-choice, anti-family planning legislators and activists.
Learn more by joining our action network! We promote bills that:
- Ensure comprehensive sexual and reproductive health education in schools and communities.
- Protect women's access to birth control and abortion services.
- Improve access to prevention and treatment of sexually transmitted infections.
- Help plan for healthy pregnancies and healthy families.
We fight bills that:
- Keep Planned Parenthood sex educators out of public schools.
- Protect pharmacists who deny women their prescriptions for birth control.
- Require over-the-counter emergency contraception by prescription only.
- Require parental consent for birth control including condoms.
- Ban all abortions, no exceptions.
