Abortion Is Essential Health Care: 5 Ways to Take Action

1. Add Your Name: Say Abortion Is Essential Care

Republican governors in five states are trying to force health centers to turn away patients. While people are doing their best to survive this crisis — worrying about their health and livelihoods — the Trump administration and Republican leadership snuck dangerous language into the COVID-19 relief bill. It targets Planned Parenthood and expands the harmful and discriminatory Hyde Amendment. We're here with you. This is outrageous and it’s unacceptable — and we're fighting back.

2. Be a Planned Parenthood Virtual Volunteer

One of the best things you can do to help defeat anti-reproductive rights lawmakers, stop bad bills and protect access to Planned Parenthood health centers is to volunteer from home. Join the Virtual Volunteers, so you can choose how you want to  help, whenever you have the time — we’ll provide the resources, training, and community that you need to take action without leaving your home.

3. Share on Social

Share on social media that you stand with abortion patients and providers everywhere because abortion is essential health care.

4. Donate

We need resources to fight back against attacks on abortion across the country. Your health care is essential — help us today.
