Republicans for Planned Parenthood
In this highly charged hyper-partisan political atmosphere, bipartisan work on a range of issues is much more challenging than in days past — and women’s health is no exception.
While some may believe Republicans do not support family planning and reproductive freedom, that isn’t the reality.
Supportive Republicans are working every day in every state to make sure that their voices are heard across the country. In a number of states, Planned Parenthood was started and supported by Republicans; in addition, a number of Republican presidents have demonstrated strong commitments to federal family planning programs that provide affordable access to birth control and other preventive care.
We believe that women’s health care decisions are personal and private, and should be left to a woman, her family, and her faith with the counsel of her doctor — AND without government intrusion. The nearly 3 million patients that Planned Parenthood health centers see each year aren’t coming because of politics — they are coming because they care about their health and their lives. They come for cancer screenings, Pap tests, birth control, and STD tests.
Now, more than ever it is important for Republicans to speak up for women’s health and let our leaders know that it is important that we protect the individual rights of women and their families to make their own private medical decisions.
