The Issues We're Fighting For

Issues

Issues

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.

OUR TOP PRIORITY:
The ROE Act

With the Supreme Court poised to gut Roe v. Wade, Massachusetts must dismantle barriers to care and reform 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 politicians interfering. That’s why we are leading the charge to pass a new proactive abortion access policy, the ROE Act.

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. 

PAST VICTORIES

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

Confidential health care
 

Every person in Massachusetts should be able to access the confidential care they need. That's why we passed the PATCH Act.

Repeal of archaic abortion laws

Every person should have access to the full range of reproductive health care services, including safe and legal abortion. That's why we fought for the NASTY Woman Act

Paid family medical leave
 

No one should be forced to choose between taking care of a child they love or keeping their job. That’s why we advocated for a strong paid family and medical leave policy.

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.
