Why I Stand With Planned Parenthood

Join me in spreading the word about why you #StandWithPP
  1. Planned Parenthood provides nearly 4.5 million STI tests and treatment per year, the core of their health services
  2. They provide over 1 million preventative cancer screenings annually
  3. And nearly 4 million clients saw them for reversible contraception options (vasectomies, tubes tied) and emergency contraception (Plan B)
  4. 79% of their clients are at or below 150% of the federal poverty level (150% = makes less than $17,000 a year)
  5. Abortions are only 3% of their services
  6. But even if they were 300%, they're still a health care organization making medicine and wellness accessible to all women
  7. They're a resource for hundreds of thousands of women who can't afford other options
  8. They provide a voice and a safe space for members of many communities that may not otherwise have had anywhere to turn, due to social stigma
  9. As a child of immigrants, despite being upper middle class and raised by educated liberals, I know first hand how little sex, and thus sexual health, is discussed in immigrant communities. PP is a resource for ALL, not just politicized minority groups.
  10. Their staff goes to work everyday in the face of prejudice, threats, harassment, and violence, because they're that committed to accessible health care and supporting women's rights to equality in said care
  11. I support basic human rights and the people who go above and beyond to ensure them
