People should be free to determine when and if they want a family and they should have easy access to the information that can help them make these important decisions.

Even though Maryland is progressive state, a growing number of legislators, supported by an influential anti-choice grassroots movement, are making it increasingly difficult for people to control their own bodies and lives.

These powerful voices would like the government to make sure that people only have sex when married and only for the sake of having children, no matter what the cost may be to our communities and personal freedoms. Simply put, the government should not be in the business of controlling the number of children we have, or deciding when it is best for us to start our families.

PPM is the primary resource to legislators in Annapolis on issues of reproductive healthcare and education.

We lead statewide coalitions that lobby and educate locally and within state government. Often we are the only provider of reproductive health services that will testify in Annapolis. We are able to provide first-hand perspectives on these issues because we treat and educate thousands of Marylanders every year. We travel to Washington, DC to join rallies on the Affordable Health Care Act and birth control coverage.
