This is the first time a president has ever singled out a health care provider in the federal budget like this.

President Trump just doubled down on blocking women from accessing care at Planned Parenthood — calling on Congress to bar Planned Parenthood from participating in ANY health care program, including Medicaid, HIV programs, Zika prevention programs, and our nation's only birth control program.

The House of Representatives already voted to "defund" Planned Parenthood as a part of the ACA repeal bill — the worst bill for women's health in a generation. The Senate is about to vote on that same bill in the coming weeks. Now, with Trump singling out Planned Parenthood this week and calling on Congress to block women from care, this is the most dangerous moment we have ever been in. If opponents of women's health are successful in "defunding" Planned Parenthood, millions of people will be cut off from basic health care.

Take Action Now

 

This is the first time a president has ever singled out a health care provider in the federal budget like this. It reinforces the most troubling trend we've seen this year: politicians going to every length possible to come after Planned Parenthood and hack away access to care.

 

Before Congress goes on break again next week, they need to hear from us — loud and clear — again:  Make sure lawmakers feel the outrage and anger they've provoked by their relentless attacks on our care.

Send a message now.

 

The threat to our health care is real and imminent. Just yesterday, the Congressional Budget Office revealed that the latest version of Paul Ryan's health care bill — the one the House already passed — will cut 23 million people off from health insurance, in addition to blocking care at Planned Parenthood health centers.

It's hard to imagine a recent time when access to health care and reproductive rights were under greater threat — or when the voices of those willing to protect them were more necessary. 

With anti-reproductive health lawmakers like Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Paul Ryan, and Mitch McConnell pulling out every stop to restrict access to reproductive rights — no matter whose health care they take away, no matter whose lives they ruin, no matter who may end up dead from lack of access to care — we need to be louder and more persistent than ever before.

Send your representatives in Congress a message before they leave town. They need to remember that you're outraged, fired up, and won't back down.

Thanks for sticking with us every step of the way.
