About

This election, Planned Parenthood advocacy and political organizations are fighting harder than ever against the relentless attacks on reproductive health and rights — and against each extreme, out-of-touch, 2016 candidate who is campaigning to make those attacks even worse.

Don’t worry. We know how to stop them: By electing officials who will protect women’s health.

 

The unrelenting and unprecedented wave of attacks on women’s health and rights has had a devastating effect on women’s lives. Millions of men, women and young people rely on Planned Parenthood to provide them with a wide range of services and also to fight for their rights – and that’s why Planned Parenthood Action Fund is fighting on every front to protect women’s health. 

We are doing what it takes to make sure that Planned Parenthood health centers can continue to provide services to women who rely on them for basic health care; we’re fighting to keep these dangerous restrictions from passing in state legislatures and Congress; and Planned Parenthood lawyers are challenging them in court if they do pass.

But we’re also on offense to stop bad laws from passing in the first place. At the end of the day, the only way to stop dangerous laws from passing – and to protect women’s health – is to change who is making the decisions.

That is why we are launching I Vote Planned Parenthood Action for the 2016 election cycle.

Together, we will move heaven and earth to elect people who will fight for reproductive rights and replace those who are passing these restrictions on abortion, birth control, and preventive health care. No matter where you live, you can get involved today to make a real impact on people's lives in all 50 states. Lasting change starts right now.

Take Action

Our Values

We’re going on offense, and our values are driving the fight:

A vision of America where inequity in access to reproductive health care is no more.

Values

Abortion

Get Politicians out of Personal, Medical Decisions

Together, we will elect women's health champions who will not interfere in women's personal medical decisions — lawmakers to replace the ones who have passed an unprecedented number of dangerous restrictions on abortion in Congress and statehouses, and who threaten to pass more.

Sex Ed

Eliminate Inequity in Access to Sexual and Reproductive Health Care

Together, we will get out the vote for candidates who will work with us toward a vision of an America where all young people — and adults — have access to quality sex education.

Access

Give all young people access to quality sex education

Together, we will elect candidates who will vote for laws to help eliminate inequity in access to reproductive health care and against laws that block patients from accessing reproductive health care, like affordable birth control and services at Planned Parenthood.

Join us in the fight ahead.

On November 9, our Planned Parenthood family, supporters, and patients woke up to a reality we fought so hard to prevent. Instead of welcoming reproductive health champion Hillary Clinton as our first female president, we saw Donald Trump take the White House.

We now face a very different future, and there is uncertainty ahead. But one thing is for sure: We will never back down, and Planned Parenthood will never stop providing the care patients need.

For the past 100 years, Planned Parenthood has been there for those who needed it — and even with this unthinkable news, that won't change.

In these moments, we have all a choice: Do we let callousness win, or compassion? Do we tune out, or do we engage? Shut down, or stand up?

Planned Parenthood chooses to stand up, and fight back.Even in the hardest times. Especially in the hardest times.

Join us in the fight ahead. The work starts today.
