Public Funding of Family Planning Services
Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado (PPVC) believes that all individuals have the right to nondiscriminatory access to a full range of reproductive health care services, and that no individual should be denied those services because of age or economic status. As part of this, PPVC works with government entities to provide women in Colorado access to reproductive health care services. The Medicaid program covers contraceptives, counseling services and patient education, infertility services and sterilization reversals, cancer screenings, and testing for sexually transmitted infections related to family planning services. In accordance with the Hyde Amendment and Colorado law, these federal funds do not pay for abortion services.
