They didn’t just underestimate us. They underestimated you.
Since the vote on February 18, more than 700,000 women and men have signed an open letter to stand with Planned Parenthood against these outrageous attacks. Unbelievable! We’ve made an impact. And, as the Senate considers its course on this legislation, we have the chance to make an even bigger impact. We have a chance to stop it — but we need your help.
We’ve gotten this far because people like you took a minute to chat with friends, to persuade family, to share a story and link. And we’re going to reach one million because you keep on going. Your passion, your commitment, your words — they are the engine that is driving this movement and they are what will get us to one million. Take a moment now, even if you’ve already done so, to spread the word.
Did you hear? The House voted to bar Planned Parenthood from federal funding. They cut funding for HIV tests, cancer screenings, birth control, and more, putting millions of women and families at risk. It’s time for you and me to stand with Planned Parenthood. Sign the open letter to the reps who voted for this bill — and to the senators who still have a chance to stop it.
I’m hearing stories from grandmothers who were patients at Planned Parenthood health centers 50 years ago — and who took their daughters and granddaughters to seek care with Planned Parenthood during their teen years. I’m hearing young women speak loudly and confidently to protect their own access to care. I’m seeing — the nation is seeing — just how much Planned Parenthood and the women, men, and teens who rely on us matter to our supporters.
Supporters like you truly are the heart and soul of this organization. I can’t tell you what an enormous difference your unwavering dedication makes right now for Planned Parenthood and the women, men, and teens who rely on us. Thank you for standing with us.
In my years working with Planned Parenthood, I’ve never seen so many people so ready to fight for women’s health. The messages of support, the rallies, the calls, the signs, the photographs, the videos — you have done so very much for us and with us. We are truly awed by your commitment. Thank you.
When anti-choice members of Congress voted to bar Planned Parenthood from federal funding, they thought they’d won. But — they were wrong. So very wrong.
