PLANNED PARENTHOOD WITHDRAWAL FROM TITLE X MUST SERVE AS ALARM BELL TO NATION’S PROCHOICE MAJORITY

“#VOTEPROCHOICE supports Planned Parenthood’s courageous, principled decision to leave the Title X family planning program in light of President Trump’s dangerous gag rule. Planned Parenthood provides essential reproductive healthcare services to millions of people across the nation—and complying with this unethical, dangerous gag rule would gravely harm those who need reproductive healthcare services most.

"With gag rules and abortion bans spreading like a wildfire of misogyny, we can support Planned Parenthood and fight back by electing prochoice champions in state and local races everywhere. Contrary to what the anti-choice minority wants us to believe, America is not divided on the issue of reproductive freedom. We are an overwhelmingly prochoice nation: 77% of Americans do not want Roe v Wade overturned. While the extreme, anti-choice conservative minority elected President Trump and took over the Supreme Court, our prochoice nation can still fight back if we vote prochoice up and down the ballot. There are 49,000 races in 34 states on the ballot November 2019. Planned Parenthood’s decision must serve as an alarm bell to our nation’s prochoice majority that we are under attack—and it’s time to stand up and vote prochoice in every election, everywhere.”
