"Rather than focus on fixing the economy and creating jobs, conservatives are pulling a bait and switch and are working to strip federal family planning funding from Planned Parenthood health centers," says Planned Parenthood of Illinois CEO Carol Brite. "If that happens, millions of women who rely on Planned Parenthood for their primary and preventative health care--including annual exams, lifesaving cancer screenings, contraception visits, and testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections--would lose access to their main source of basic preventative health care."
On Roe v. Wade's 38th anniversary, Planned Parenthood is still committed to fighting state and federal anti-choice efforts against women's health care. With grassroots supporters in every state, Planned Parenthood is striving to educate the public on these threats and is working to stop legislation that threatens to take away women's health coverage and care.
