stand up for health rights.

There are so many reasons to sign Planned Parenthood’s petition to Congress to reverse their bill to bar federal funding to Planned Parenthood. This organization has been a safe haven for both women and men from all walks of life, and has filled a major gap in meeting the crucial health care needs of our nation’s young people for almost a century. The House’s move to bar funding for birth control, cancer screenings, HIV testing is yet another piece of undeniable proof that the House is out of touch with the needs of our generation. These actions will have a pervasive impact on our communities for many, many years, and I am disgusted that the House has betrayed the many individuals who rely on Planned Parenthood to live a more healthy life — all because many of our leaders cannot separate from base ideologies that obviously do not reflect any concern for or knowledge of the real needs of their people.
Please sign the petition.
