The Issues We're Fighting For



The national political environment makes it more important than ever that we advocate for bills that ensure sexual and reproductive health care, including safe and legal abortion, remain accessible and protected for all – no matter what. The Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund and its grassroots supporters are a forceful presence on Beacon Hill for issues that relate to improving access to reproductive health care and greater health equity for all people across Massachusetts.

The ROE Act

With the passage of key provisions of the ROE Act, Massachusetts dismantled barriers to abortion and reformed state laws so every person has the right to pursue the life they want, including the right to decide if and when to become a parent - without political interference. The ROE Act will ensure that more people in Massachusetts can seek care when and where they need it.

The Healthy Youth Act

Young people in Massachusetts deserve access to sex education that provides accurate information. That's why we're advocating for the Healthy Youth Act. 


Birth control access

All people in Massachusetts deserve access to affordable birth control. That's why we advocated for and passed the Contraceptive ACCESS Act

National Attacks

The federal government is now in the hands of out-of-touch lawmakers who have tried for years to shut down Planned Parenthood health centers and cut patients off from care. If they succeed, millions will lose the care they rely on each year, with people of color, those with low incomes, and folks in rural areas most affected.
