Reproductive health and rights are under unprecedented attack — and that makes the stakes sky high this election. Here’s what we’re up against: extreme lawmakers in states across the country who are doing everything they can to ban patients from getting care at Planned Parenthood, politicians in Washington who are trying to cut off access to essential reproductive care (6 votes in September alone!), and top GOP presidential hopefuls, all of whom would ban safe and legal abortion.
What happens this year will have very real repercussions for access to the full range of reproductive health care, including abortion. It will also have a real impact on the women, men and young people who count on Planned Parenthood across the country for quality, affordable care.
In fact, this year is our biggest chance yet to elect champions of reproductive health. We need leaders in Congress and state legislatures who have fought alongside Planned Parenthood supporters and stood up against relentless attacks on women’s health. We need a reproductive health champion in the White House. Period.
That’s why Planned Parenthood Action Fund is going all out from now until Election Day. On ivoteppaction.org, we’ll be holding anti-women’s health candidates accountable for their positions and (more importantly) telling you what you need to know on the most important reproductive rights issues. Every day from now through November 2016, we’ll be reminding politicians that Planned Parenthood supporters are a force to be reckoned with — and they vote.
