April 7th Coalition Rally with Planned Parenthood

Date/Time: 
04/07/2011

PLEASE JOIN THE RALLY on APRIL 7th to STAND UP FOR WOMEN’S HEALTH!
RSVP Now!

This Congress was elected to fix the economy and create jobs. Instead, the House majority is working overtime attacking women's health and rights with a series of bills to end the national family planning program (Title X), bar Planned Parenthood from providing health services through federal programs, enacting new tax hikes to end private health insurance for abortion, and more.

Join the crowd as Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards and NARAL Pro-Choice America President Nancy Keenan take the stage with legislative leaders, allies, and celebrities as we ALL stand up for women’s health.

Planned Parenthood Speaks Out Against the Elimination of Family Planning Funding

We received the following news from Planned Parenthood this morning:

Yesterday the House Appropriations Committee announced that the Title X family planning program ($317 million) will be eliminated in the House leadership’s FY11 Continuing Resolution (CR), which will be considered next week by the full House. This bill is necessary to continue funding the government after March 4 (when the current CR expires) through the end of the fiscal year. 

Other critical health programs are also targeted for significant reductions – including the maternal and child health block grant program and community health centers.
