Protect Women's Health


I am sure you have heard by now of the outrageous craziness that is going on in the House of Representatives.

If the amendment goes into law, the measure would cut $330 million through the end of September for the Planned Parenthood.

To me this has nothing to do with your political views; I do not care if you are Republican or Democrat, but I do care that we all ban together & not let women loose their rights!

Planned Parenthood is a place where women (and men) can get the proper treatment they need. They can go here knowing they will not be judged & their rights protected. This is an organization that I believe in & hope you do too.

This is not about abortions, Planned Parenthood also provides family planning, HIV tests and preventative cancer and other medical screenings.

This is about making sure that we women, have a place to get the vital care that we need if it! This is about our bodies!

YOU CAN DO SOMETHING TO STOP THIS INSANITY!


  • Send a letter supporting Planned Parenthood and demanding that their funding be maintained.
  • Give money to Planned Parenthood so they can spend the next 10 days fighting for their funding and women’s rights.
  • Attend a rally (or start one!) to let your representatives and the country know that support for women’s health is not negotiable.
  • Donate your Twitter or Facebook status to supporting women and Planned Parenthood.

  1. Thank you for posting this. It makes me sick that lawmakers think it's somehow appropriate to make women's healthcare suffer to save a few bucks. Haven't we suffered enough? Why do women have to pay this price?

  2. I've been thinking of this all weekend and I keep getting angier. I called my congressman's office and I will go and make my status on FB for PP

    if we as a country get rid of funding for this, it's a FAIL...it's something we can truly be ashamed of.

  4. Thank you for posting this. It breaks my heart. PP provides so many much needed services! and I believe they do not use federal funding for abortions so there is no reason for the pro-life people to be so up in arms.
