"I was the first woman in my family to make it to 19 without being married, pregnant, or both thanks to sex education and access to birth control. Also, my grandmother grew up in the mountains of East Tennessee during the great depression and later moved to Washington, D.C., where she and my grandfather lived and raised eight children in one of the poorest neighborhoods in D.C. Many years later, the day before she died, I spent the day with her in the hospice center. One of the last things she told me was, “I loved all my kids, but if I was young like you and could have gotten birth control, I wouldn’t have had so many." Over 60 years later, there are still a lot of poor women like her in both rural and urban areas who don’t have access to birth control so I support Planned Parenthood for my grandmother, Dottie May Cabage."

"​Planned Parenthood gave me power for the first time my freshman year of high school when they taught sex ed. They continued to empower me by teaching me leadership skills though their peer education program. They empower me today by providing reproductive health care. I stood with Planned Parenthood. I stand with Planned Parenthood. I’m never sitting down."
