We know that Minnesotans stand with Planned Parenthood and support access to reproductive health care. In a state-wide poll conducted just last month, solid majorities of citizens from across the state support funding for family planning services and access to safe and legal abortion.
Now it's time for Minnesotans to speak up and let their elected officials know they support Planned Parenthood. Tomorrow, we expect to see an array of anti-women's health and anti-Planned Parenthood provisions voted on at the Minnesota State Capitol.
If passed, these measures could have devastating consequences:
- Eliminate access to Planned Parenthood clinics for 45,000 patients each year who rely on Planned Parenthood for birth control, STD testing and treatment, clinical breast exams, and life-saving cancer screenings
- Restrict access to safe and legal abortion for rural and low-income women.
- Place unnecessary restrictions on abortion providers in order to shut down clinics across the state.
- Eliminate abortion coverage for women who access health insurance from state sponsored programs.
Now, more than ever, we need your voice to be heard to keep access to safe and affordable reproductive health care a reality for all.
