Getting Involved with Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood! 

There is uncertainty ahead of us and we are facing renewed attacks. But, one thing is for sure — we will never back down, and we will never stop fighting to make sure that Planned Parenthood patients are able to access the care they need. 

Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood has lots of upcoming events that you can get involved with! Check back with us as this list changes! 

Our upcoming events include:

  •  Submit your official comment on the Gag Rule.

    We need to show just how many people oppose this dangerous policy — and right now is our chance. The administration will be accepting comments, and every single one of them matters.

  •  Send your Senator a message to REJECT any Supreme Court Nominee

    Send your senators a message NOW telling them to REJECT any Supreme Court nominee who will take away our right to safe and legal abortion. Most women in America were born after Roe v. Wade was decided. It's unimaginable to think that people could have less freedom than our mothers and grandmothers did. But that's exactly what will happen if we let Trump hand a lifetime appointment to another extreme judge who will deny us the rights we fought so hard to win.
