Over 400 laws have been passed in the last 7 years that directly restrict abortion and women’s health care. Trump has also done his darndest to hamstring abortion clinics and services, and continues to conspire on further restrictions. And while today some are celebrating because the Supreme Court left in place federal court rulings that prevent states from denying Medicaid funds to women who go to a Planned Parenthood clinic for healthcare, the high court’s refusal to hear an appeal petition will not prevent the justices from taking up the issue in the future. Brett Kavanaugh might not (will most likely not) be so accommodating next time.
So, let’s do what we can now to protect women and the right to widespread reproductive health care.
1 Call your MoC and voice your strong support for (and make sure they vote to support!) the continued funding of Planned Parenthood without any restriction.
2 Give the gift of choice this holiday season by donating to Planned Parenthood on behalf of yourself or a loved one (or Mike Pence!).
