Planned Parenthood supporters spent this week putting up a fight.

When the Senate tried  to rush a vote on ‘Trumpcare’ this week, hundreds of local Planned Parenthood supporters fought  back by  “pinking out” the Hill every morning and evening with a clear message to the Senate, “Protect Planned Parenthood. Vote NO on Trumpcare.”

Thanks to the hard work of these advocates, McConnell announced that the Senate vote on Trumpcare will be delayed until after the July 4th recess to solicit more support from GOP senators. But even though they’re trying to buy more time, it won’t change the fact that this bill is an unpopular one.

Trumpcare would strip health care from millions and block low-income patients from going to Planned Parenthood for preventive care, including birth control and cancer screenings.


80% oppose “defunding” Planned Parenthood

A new poll from Quinnipiac University came out today finding that 80% of American voters oppose so-called “defunding” Planned Parenthood, including 67% of Republicans

This support for the care Planned Parenthood provides has stayed consistent over time. Back in March of this year, a Quinnipiac poll also found that 80% of voters oppose so-called “defunding” Planned Parenthood.

In addition to “defunding” Planned Parenthood and slashing Medicaid, Trumpcare guts Essential Health Benefits protections, including maternity coverage and prescription drugs. Thirteen million women could lose coverage to maternity care under this bill. It would also disproportionately impact women who already face unfair barriers to care, including low-income women and women of color. We can’t let that happen.


Keep Calling

Even with the delay on the health care vote, it’s more urgent than ever that Senators know we won’t tolerate attacks on Planned Parenthood.

Call your Senator and tell them you’re one of the millions of Americans who supports Planned Parenthood.

Top 3 Ways to Take Action

Stand up to discrimination

The Trump-Pence administration just set up a new HHS office to promote discrimination. Tell them that we won't tolerate hate. 

Be a PP Defender

Defenders are a core group of supporters who have said they'll give their time to defend Planned Parenthood, the health services they provide, and the people who rely on them — in what just may be the fight of our lives.

Volunteer for PP

Now more than ever, Planned Parenthood is counting on volunteers who are ready to take action locally and online and stand up for reproductive health and rights.
