An Incredible Win | Planned Parenthood Video

"Planned Parenthood grassroots organizers and advocates were a driving force in opposing efforts to ""defund"" Planned Parenthood.

With more than 600 health centers across the country, Planned Parenthood organizations serve all patients with care and compassion, with respect and without judgment. Through health centers, programs in schools and communities, and online resources, Planned Parenthood is a trusted source of reliable health information that allows people to make informed health decisions. We do all this because we care passionately about helping people lead healthier lives. Transcript: We are here today to thank generations of organizers, troublemakers, and hell-raisers who formed secret sisterhoods, who opened Planned Parenthood health centers in their communities, and demanded the right to control their own bodies. We are here to deliver a message: We’re not going to take this lying down. And we will not go back. For the majority of people in this country, Planned Parenthood is not the problem—we are the solution. We have been a part of the fabric of America for 100 years, and my pledge today is to ensure our doors stay open. Now is the time for us to link arms for the right of working women to earn a living wage, for the right of immigrant families to live without fear, for the right of mothers everywhere to raise families in safe communities with clean air and clean water. We’re here for the right to live openly no matter who you are or who you love, no matter what. And you better believe we are here fight for reproductive rights, including access to safe and legal abortion. Congress is going to be moving quickly to try to pass restrictions on reproductive health access. And we need to stop them. You need to contact your congressman, call your senators, and let them know we will not go back. One of us can be dismissed, two of us can be ignored, but together we are a movement and we are unstoppable.more
