Planned Parenthood has been in the news a lot lately. So it’s understandable that you may have some questions about defunding, insurance, birth control, abortion, and ways you can help Planned Parenthood.
The main thing to know is that our health centers are open as usual, and staff are doing what they’ve always done; opening the health center doors and providing expert, affordable health care to anyone who needs it.
Here are the answers to some common questions we’ve gotten from patients and supporters.
What YOU can do to help.
There is uncertainty ahead of us as anti-women’s health legislators target us, but we will never stop fighting to protect access to the full range of care our patients depend on: affordable birth control, STI testing and treatment, cancer screening and abortion.
Here are some ways you can take action and show your support:
Help spread the word. Share with your friends and family that our doors will remain open so that they know that can continue to count on us for health care.
Donate. Make a donation at a health center or through the Community Action Fund to support advocacy efforts that help protect Planned Parenthood against defunding efforts.
Sign up for updates. Sign up to receive information regarding upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, and action alerts from the Community Action Fund.
Volunteer. We need people to advocate for women’s health and reproductive rights and to make a difference in the community.
Write a letter. Had a great experience at one of our health centers? The staff works very hard to provide all patients with high-quality care and they appreciate letters of support and thanks.
Make an appointment. A great way to show support for Planned Parenthood is to continue to come in for high-quality, affordable care.
