News This Week

  • A federal judge in Seattle struck down President Trump’s immigration ban, reactivating tens of thousands of visas.

  • Congress moved forward with confirmation votes for Trump’s cabinet, including Tom Price for Secretary of Health and Human Services.

  • Legislation to defund Planned Parenthood passed the Virginia legislature and is headed to Governor Terry McAuliffe's desk, where he's expected to veto it.

 

If You Do 1 Thing Today

Your members of Congress will likely be in your state during the President’s Day recess, February 18-26.

If you do one thing today, either:

 

More Time? Do These Three Things!

  1. Congress is still determined to roll back President Obama's rule protecting the Title X family planning program. We can’t let them dismantle the rule and open the door to extremist politicians blocking people's access to preventive care at a health center just because it also provides safe, legal abortion.

    Share this image on Facebook and encourage your friends to ask their senators to hold Judge Gorsuch accountable on Roe.
  3. Stay connected with us wherever you go — follow Planned Parenthood Action Fund on Instagram.

 

Get Loud

Defender of the Week

Defenders are a core group of supporters who have said they’ll give their time to defend Planned Parenthood, the health services it provides, and the people who rely on its health centers.

Our star defender this week: Sierra D. (21, OH) is an activist with Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio (PPGOH) who constantly impresses her peers with her work ethic and passion for human rights issues, especially those affecting women and immigrants. From working double get-out-the-vote shifts alone, to phone banking, to starting an internship with PPGOH — thank you, Sierra, for your contagious kindness and dedication to do good in this world!
