NEW FROM THE 19TH*: ‘YOU REPRESENT US’ - WHAT IT’S LIKE TO LOBBY FOR ABORTION RIGHTS FROM A RED STATE:  Last week, Planned Parenthood Action Fund patient advocates from across the country visited Capitol Hill to meet with their members of Congress and their staff about the importance of protecting and expanding access to sexual and reproductive health care. In this in-depth feature story in The 19th*, patient advocates Elizabeth Feldmanm from Pleasant Hill, Iowa, Yolenna Regmi from Papillon, Nebraska, and Lacey Layne from Fort Mill, South Carolina, spoke to their experiences sharing their stories with their republican representatives. 

“I just want them to know that we’re out here, and we’re going to keep showing up…And whether you like it or not, you represent us,” said Feldman. 

“I think that people shouldn’t be scared to say what they believe in, when you never know who’s listening…You never know what opportunities are going to come to your door if you just say your values and speak up for people,” said Regmi.
