Tour Will Start Aug. 18 and Travel Through 11 States in 17 Days

Planned Parenthood Action Fund today announced that it will be hitting the road later this month, crisscrossing the country on a bus tour to make sure voters know what’s at stake for women’s health in November. The Action Fund is the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, whose affiliate health centers serve nearly three million patients every year.

“We see firsthand the people who are being hurt by policies that attack women’s health, so we know why this election matters so much,” said Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund. “Through this unprecedented bus tour, voters will hear directly from women in their own communities who would be hurt by policies that politicians like Mitt Romney support.”

The bus tour will launch Aug. 18 and travel through 11 states in 17 days. Exact dates and locations will be announced later this month. This bus tour is part of Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s largest-ever campaign effort, which the organization has undertaken because so much is at stake for women’s health in this election and because women will decide the outcome of this election.  

“Women in America trust Planned Parenthood, and over the next two-and-a-half months, Planned Parenthood Action Fund volunteers will be going to door-to-door and making phone calls, to educate voters on women’s health issues and where candidates for office stand,” said Richards. “These are basic economic issues for women and families and supporting family planning is smart fiscal policy for the country.”
