Want To Stand Up To Trump And Help Protect Planned Parenthood? Here’s How You Can Help
Donald Trump and his group of conservatives are looking to slash funding for Planned Parenthood, a program that helps bring healthcare access to millions of patients every year. But you can help millions of people keep their healthcare access.
I Stand With Planned Parenthood has set up a website where it shows you step-by-step on what you can do to help.
Their website states that “if extreme politicians get their way, 2.5 million patients per year will lose access to care at Planned Parenthood health centers.”
Their website also states that “an estimated one in five women has relied on Planned Parenthood health centers for care in her lifetime.” This is why the program is so important and this is also why most of Americans support Planned Parenthood.
Anti-abortion extremists like Donald Trump and Mike Pence are spreading misinformation on Planned Parenthood in order to hide the truth behind it and how they’re actually hurting patients.
According to the petition website “if Planned Parenthood health centers can’t provide care for [patients], nobody will. In fact, in more than 20% of the counties where Planned Parenthood health centers operate, there are no other health care providers who serve patients who rely on safety-net providers.”
That raises the question; why would the right-wing conservatives want to take away healthcare from so many people? Is it to stop abortions? Well a study in Texas showed that “pregnancy-related deaths doubled after the state stopped reimbursing Planned Parenthood and imposed stringent funding cuts for women’s health.”
This is where you come in. It’s time to stand up. You can start helping by visiting IStandWithPP.org and sign the petition. The website also offers a deeper look into what the program actually offers and it goes into detail on what you can do to help.
