Abortion Is Health Care
Access to safe, legal abortion is access to vital health care—and we need those in power to take action now to ensure accessible, high-quality health care to everyone in America.Sign this Petition
Planned Parenthood keeps landing smack-dab in the middle of the Republicans’ war on women, ostensibly for its abortion practice. But that seems strange, considering this chart:
Only 3% of their patient care actually goes to abortion services. And, according to federal law, Planned Parenthood cannot actually use government funds on abortion procedures. So, if Planned Parenthood gets defunded, it’ll hurt poor people who are in need of cancer screenings, contraception, and STD testing.
So, nice try on that abortion thing, Republicans. As usual, your claims don’t hold.
