Planned Parenthood applauds Governor Dayton’s decision to appoint Lt. Governor Tina Smith to the United States Senate
As United States Senator Tina Smith will be a powerful, moving force for justice and she’ll continue her life’s work to improve people’s lives.
From the federal to the state level, attacks on women’s health and rights have been the centerpiece to the Trump Administration’s war on women. These attacks disproportionately harm women of color, undocumented women, LGBTQ+ folks, and low-income earning women.
The Trump Administration wants your ability to access birth control to be determined by your bosses’ beliefs.
Do you want to spread some holiday joy AND support reproductive rights?! Heck yeah you do. Get your holiday shop on in style and support Planned Parenthood at the same time.
Planned Parenthood stands with the courageous women who are coming forward to tell their stories of sexual harassment and assault. For far too long, these behaviors have been brushed aside and ignored. Sexual assault and harassment are completely unacceptable and should never be tolerated, or turned away from, in any setting including the workplace. Perpetrators of sexual assault and/or harassment must be held accountable for their actions. We all deserve to feel safe and respected in our workplaces.
“It was welcoming and non-judgmental. There was no, 'gee, really? You want this? Why do you want this?' None of that. Just very respectful and very professional and very comforting. You know all the things you would expect from Planned Parenthood and I was really pleased that you do it better.”
The 2017 municipal elections are on November 7! Many issues that are critical to our daily lives are on the Election Day ballot, so no matter who you vote for, make sure you vote.
The Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) is still in effect, and will be unless there's a change in the law. That means that birth control — including IUDs and the implant — is still covered without a copay. And there's still time to get covered. In Minnesota, you can sign up for coverage until January 14, 2018.
From attempts to repeal and replace the ACA, to defunding Planned Parenthood, to protecting perpetrators of sexual assault on college campuses--our patients need the support of our community more than ever.
