Report: Missouri's safety net cannot serve patients without Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood is a crucial component of the health care safety net — but some lawmakers are working to discriminate against Planned Parenthood patients and block them from getting preventive care at Planned Parenthood health centers.

Preventing Missourians from choosing Planned Parenthood leaves many without access to vital preventive care, including birth control, cancer screenings, and sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing and treatment.

Missouri's health care safety net needs more resources — not fewer providers.
