The House votes to defund Planned Parenthood!

It's up to the Senate to say "no."

We need to send 50,000 emails to the Senate. Send your email right now.

Moments ago,  the U.S. House of Representatives declared war on birth control

The House just voted to defund Planned Parenthood, and is also set to pass a bill that eliminates funding for family planning at other local health centers. It means that women in your community could lose access to birth control, Pap smears, breast-cancer screenings, and many other types of preventive health care.

We must make a big statement right now to call on the Senate to say no to this devastating cut. Help us send 50,000 emails to the Senate in the next seven days.

Anti-choice lawmakers' attacks today are just plain irresponsible. Cutting funding for Planned Parenthood and other health centers would leave at least five million women and men without access to basic health care. Where will these people go for critical services?

We are talking about birth-control prescriptions, screenings for breast cancer and cervical cancer, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases, Pap tests,  annual exams, and prenatal and well baby care.

Tell your senators to stand up for the nation's family-planning program and the five million people it serves.

I know a lot of women and men who turned to a Planned Parenthood while they were in college or between jobs. And I'm sure you do, too.

That's why this is a huge moment for all of us who are pro-choice. We understand what it means to make responsible choices about preventing unintended pregnancy and protecting our reproductive health, even when money is tight.

Anti-choice lawmakers clearly don't. They're out of touch with the reality of women's lives.

Our opponents are attacking health-care services that are vital to women. This is not a symbolic belt-tightening gesture. This attack is personal. It's about all of us.
