Anti-women’s health members of Congress haven’t given up their aim to “defund” Planned Parenthood health centers and block patients from accessing care. But we’re not letting them threaten Planned Parenthood patients’ health care.
That’s why on Wednesday, March 29, we’re fighting back with Pink Out Day. The day will be a show of strength for our movement that will turn the whole internet Planned Parenthood PINK. No matter where you turn on #PinkOut Day, you'll feel the groundswell of support from the majority of Americans who oppose Congress’ dangerous scheme to “defund” Planned Parenthood.
Why #PinkOut Day
The threat to Planned Parenthood patients is urgent. That's one reason why millions came to the Women's March, and thousands flooded town halls to tell their elected officials. Reproductive rights supporters told their electeds to stop attacking people’s health care, and we need to keep the pressure on.
So, why #PinkOut? A whopping 75% of Americans oppose the effort “defund” Planned Parenthood health centers. That’s not a big surprise given the millions of patients who count on Planned Parenthood health centers for quality, supportive care.
By Pinking Out the internet and in public events, millions of Americans are sending a message to Congress: Do not block access to care at Planned Parenthood. Not now. Not ever.
