Planned Parenthood Celebrates Gov. Whitmer's Investments in Sexual and Reproductive Health

The Governor’s 2024 Budget Proposal would Expand Healthy Moms, Healthy Babies and Restart Plan First

LANSING, Mich. – Today, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer released her 2024 executive budget recommendation, calling for historic investments in reproductive and sexual health. Gov. Whitmer has asked the legislature to expand Healthy Moms, Healthy Babies, which offers critical support to pregnant and postpartum Michiganders. The governor also recommended restarting Plan First. This program connects more than 25,000 Michiganders with essential reproductive health care.

Statement from Paula Thornton Greear, President and CEO at Planned Parenthood of Michigan: 

“A budget is a statement of values, and, through this proposal, Gov. Whitmer is making it clear that she prioritizes the health and well-being of Michigan families. Gov. Whitmer's 2024 executive budget would significantly expand access to critical and lifesaving sexual and reproductive health care for Michiganders, including birth control, cancer screenings, STI testing and treatment, doula services, and postpartum care.

Planned Parenthood of Michigan is grateful for Gov. Whitmer's continued commitment to advancing health equity and for tirelessly working to ensure that all Michiganders can access the sexual and reproductive health services they deserve. At a time when reproductive rights are under attack nationwide, Michigan continues to light the way forward, providing a blueprint to other states for breaking down barriers and expanding access to essential health care.”


Planned Parenthood offers affordable reproductive health care for all people through medical services, education and advocacy and is the nation’s leading sexual and reproductive health care advocate and provider. Planned Parenthood of Michigan operates health centers across the state, providing medical services and sexuality education for nearly 60,000 Michiganders each year.
