SACRAMENTO – Jodi Hicks, President/CEO of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, issued the following statement in response to Governor Newsom’s May Revise state budget announcement.

“Planned Parenthood is very concerned with the proposed shift of funding away from Proposition 56 supplemental rates. In a time of economic insecurity and rising unemployment, now more than ever, Californians need access to sexual and reproductive health care from trusted providers. In California, Planned Parenthood is a critical part of the health care system, providing high-quality, affordable health care to hundreds of thousands of patients, including those without health insurance.

“Planned Parenthood, the largest single provider of health care to Family PACT patients, serves a population that does not always have another health care provider to turn to. People that are low-income, immigrants, or without insurance often rely on Planned Parenthood as their only point of contact in the health care system.

“In recent years, the allocations of Proposition 56 funds to sexual and reproductive health care has been the primary reason Planned Parenthood’s health centers have been able to remain open after years of compounding budgetary challenges.

“As a safety net provider, Planned Parenthood offers essential, time-sensitive services that are needed, even in the midst of a crisis, including care that keeps patients out of otherwise overwhelmed hospitals. And our services will continue to be needed following this public health emergency. Continued Proposition 56 funding is critical for Planned Parenthood’s doors to remain open so we can continue to provide all Californians with the compassionate care they deserve.”



Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California (PPAC) is the state public policy office representing California’s seven separately incorporated Planned Parenthood affiliates. Through advocacy and electoral action, PPAC promotes sound public policy in areas of sexual and reproductive health care and sex education.
