A letter from our CEO, Linda Williams
Dear Friends and Supporters,
Our worst-case scenario for the election has come true. A president who has promised to defund Planned Parenthood and appoint Supreme Court justices committed to overturning Roe v. Wade. A House and Senate controlled by avowed enemies of our mission and services who have repeatedly tried to defund, discredit and destroy us. There is now no bulwark against their relentless attacks.
For Planned Parenthood Mar Monte, that changes everything and nothing. The bulk of our funding is in dire peril. And the services we provide, the health care and education relied on by hundreds of thousands of women, men, teens and families are as essential as they have ever been and likely to be more so. The majority of the people we serve are the very ones Donald Trump has most disparaged and marginalized.
At PPMM our task today, tomorrow and after the January inauguration remains exactly what it has always been: serve the people who need our services. And that is what we commit to do. Planned Parenthood is 100 years strong. We've faced adversity many times in many forms over those years. We have never deserted the people who trust us to serve them, and we won't desert them now. No matter how great the threat, our commitment to them has never wavered.
Your commitment is an integral part of our strength. Together, we are passionate, we are smart, we are caring, we are creative, and we are very, very persistent. The people we serve can count on Planned Parenthood Mar Monte because we can count on you.
With deep appreciation,
President and CEO
