Planned Parenthood Action Fund Launches Nearly Six-Figure Ad Campaign to Mobilize Oklahomans Against Anti-Abortion Laws
Planned Parenthood Action Fund (PPAF) has launched a nearly six-figure digital video ad campaign in response to Oklahoma Governor Stitt signing away Oklahomans’ access to abortion as he cavalierly joked about arresting patients seeking essential health care.
