STAND WITH PLANNED PARENTHOOD
Let’s fight back against the latest attacks by radical conservative fringe groups looking to push Congress to defund Planned Parenthood.
They hope a badly edited video smear campaign is enough to fool the American public into taking down a century old organization that provides healthcare for millions of people.
Here are some reasons why we’ve got to push back!
About 1 in 5 women relied on a Planned Parenthood health center for care in their lifetime.
In 2013, Planned Parenthood provided 10.6 million services.
Patients came into Planned Parenthood health centers 4.6 million times for services.
Around 2.2 million or nearly 52 percent of all patient visits, were with patients enrolled in Medicaid.
Nearly 400,000 Pap tests
Nearly 500,000 breast exams
Nearly 4.5 million STI tests and treatments, including HIV tests
Planned Parenthood served 2.7 million women, men, and young people.
At least 60 percent of the patients Planned Parenthood serves each year benefit from public health coverage programs such as the nation’s family planning program and Medicaid.
Planned Parenthood affiliates reached 1.5 million young people and families through sex education and outreach.
STOP THE LIES
All government funds that Planned Parenthood affiliates receive are restricted for specific purposes. Federal funds are prohibited from covering abortion — except in the dire circumstances of rape, incest, or when the life of the woman is in jeopardy. Planned Parenthood fully complies with this and all government restrictions.
