We’re in the fight of our lives to protect Planned Parenthood, health care, and reproductive rights — and we need every member of the movement doing all they can if we’re going to win. In the “Pink Out, Power Up” weekly blogs, you’ll find updates on the fight, meaningful ways to take action, and news you can use.

If You Do One Thing Today

Fight Back February is in full swing — and there’s still time to turn out during the President’s Day recess, February 18 to 26. This is one of the most important moments in Planned Parenthood history, and we need reproductive rights advocates to make sure their senators SEE PINK everywhere they go.

If you do one thing today, RSVP to an in-person event near you to fight and turn out in support of Planned Parenthood!

 

More Time? Do These Three Things!

The House is about to vote to dismantle President Obama’s Title X rule — cutting low-income patients off from essential family planning services. Call your Representatives now and tell them you oppose this attack on health care.

February 11 was billed as a “protest Planned Parenthood” day by anti-women’s health activists. Planned Parenthood supporters had other ideas. More than 50,000 people sent messages of support to health center staff, and turnout at pro-Planned Parenthood counter-protests dwarfed the opposition. Check out a recap of this weekend’s nationwide rallies in support of Planned Parenthood.  

The staff at Planned Parenthood health centers provide high-quality, supportive care to patients every day, no matter what. Take a moment to show these amazing people just how much their hard work and dedication means: Sign a special message to say "thanks" to health center staff.

Who will be hurt the most if Planned Parenthood is defunded? Hint: Not the legislators pushing to do so.
