How Planned Parenthood is working to protect reproductive freedom
Planned Parenthood was founded over 100 years ago on the revolutionary idea that women have the right to access the information and care they need to live healthy lives.
That’s why, for more than 35 years, CREDO has been honored to fund Planned Parenthood, its Action Fund and affiliates as they fight to protect that right — totalling $3.6 million.
Right now, Planned Parenthood Action Fund is working hard to protect abortion access from the unconstitutional attacks on reproductive freedom happening across the country and support efforts to establish a statutory right to abortion. Please take a moment to read more about how Planned Parenthood is working to protect care for millions of people and how you can take action — then vote to fund the organization this month.
Attacks on access to safe, legal abortion are escalating across the country. The six-week ban in Texas is only the latest in a long line of dangerous, unjust, and medically unnecessary bans and restrictions on abortion access. By allowing this unconstitutional law to go into effect, a majority of the Supreme Court has turned its back on 50 years of precedent, rendering Roe v. Wade effectively meaningless in Texas.
That’s why Planned Parenthood Action Fund is advocating for the passage of the Women’s Health Protection Act, critical legislation that would help protect the right to abortion throughout the United States and guard against the bans and restrictions state politicians are pushing.
The U.S. House passed the legislation last September, but the bill remains stalled in the U.S. Senate. We urge you to join our allies at Planned Parenthood Action Fund to contact your senators to support this important legislation to protect access to safe, legal abortion across this country.
