Issues

PPADMV fights day in & day out to elect bold repro rights champions to office; protect access to reproductive health care services; & build bright futures by engaging & fostering positive relationships with the communities we serve.

We serve the District of Columbia, Maryland, & northern Virginia, each with their own priorities. Because of our proximity to the capital, we also participate in many national level actions with coalition partners to protect access to healthcare & preserve reproductive justice.

Our Priorities

With anti-repro health leaders in Congress & the White House, we’re fighting hard every day to protect our care. Our top priority on the national level is to defeat attacks on birth control access for good & advocate to preserve full funding for family planning services. 

We believe everyone should have access to affordable health care & the freedom to choose to receive care from Planned Parenthood.

Maryland

Reproductive health care champions in office in MD have passed laws the past few years that ensure better access to birth control. These laws enhance, expand, and protect access to contraception, regardless of federal actions. PPADMV is continuing our efforts to advocate for coverage of contraception, as well as protect funding and access to comprehensive reproductive health care throughout the state of Maryland.

Washington, D.C.

Here in the District, we face a unique set of challenges, as our local budget is controlled by an anti-women's health Congress & we lack voting representation. Our top priority in D.C. now is protecting birth control access from ongoing national attacks on our care. Long term, we hope to also work with partners to achieve homerule & political autonomy for the District so our patients and community members can make the right health decisions for themselves.

Virginia

In 2017, together with our partners at Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia, we saw sweeping victories in the Virginia elections. Since then, it has been our top priority to work with members of the Virginia General Assembly as well as the Northam administration to expand Medicaid in the Commonwealth, expand LARC access, and improve services for comprehensive sex education, transgender healthcare, and anti-human trafficking throughout the state. In 2018, we aided in bringing about Medicaid Expansion in VA.
