We Will Not Go Back!

They must not remember. 

Those who seek to ban safe, legal abortion — they couldn’t possibly remember a time when abortion was illegal.

If they did, they would know that banning abortion did not stop the practice; it just forced women into dark alleys and into the hands of unregulated, unsafe practitioners — resulting in the needless death of thousands of women. Our daughters, sisters, our mothers, grandmothers, ourselves, our partners. The fight is on and the cost is our lives, our freedom and our autonomy. 

And in the quest to restrict access to abortion in many states, health centers have closed. Not only does this restrict access to abortion, a vital health service, it also restricts access to important preventive services like birth control, cervical cancer screenings, clinical breast exams and testing and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases.

Annually 10,000 women, men and teens come through our doors. The majority of them tell us that we are the only healthcare provider they may see in a given year. It is on behalf of these patients that I ask you to make UHPP a priority this year. 

As we saw Thanksgiving weekend, some people will go to extreme lengths to prevent women, men and teens from accessing necessary healthcare. We need you with us now more than ever before. Please put your support of Planned Parenthood into action through a generous year end gift.

Help us say “yes” as we continue to be there for all who need us. Thank you for standing with Planned Parenthood and the patients we serve. 

 

In solidarity,
