There’s no question that access to abortion, birth control, and health care at Planned Parenthood is on the line in this election. This is what we’re up against: Every single leading GOP presidential candidate is pushing extreme policies that would make it harder for Americans to access reproductive health care.
This year we’ve seen an all-out assault on safe and legal abortion in this country. You can bet it’s on the ballot this election. Why? Because the leaders we elect will have the power to fight back against attacks on safe, legal abortion — or make those attacks even worse.
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.
There's no question that reproductive health and rights are going to be BIG on the ballot next year, from statehouses to the White House. That's why as we gear up for our biggest election campaign in years — we want to know what's most important to you and your community.
Republican presidential candidates’ positions cost women a lot: Opposing equal pay ($500 billion in costs), no-copay birth control ($1.4 billion in costs), and gender discrimination protections in health care ($1 billion in costs) adds up to costing women $502.4 billion per year.
If you want to see the result of Republican leadership's devastating attacks on women's health, look no farther away than Texas. This timeline reveals how low the Texas legislature has sunk in just the past five years, and how hard we need to fight to win back reproductive health care access for Texans.
