How You can Support Planned Parenthood As They Are Under Attack From Extremist Law Makers

As you may know, many right wing extremist law makers want to defund Planned Parenthood which would deny women access to important and life saying care.  These law makers misatakenly belive that Planned Parenthood does most of its business preforming aboutrions.  And yes, while many Planned Parenthood clinics (including ours in Ottawa Illinois) It actually makes up less then two percent of what they actually do.  Here are the other services Planned Parenthood provides.

From our local Planned Parenthood website in Ottawa Illinois the Planned Parenthood Webpage.

  • Abortion services and counseling
  • Adolescent sexual health
  • Clinical breast exams
  • Comprehensive birth control services
  • Emergency contraception (morning after pill)
  • Hepatitis A & B vaccine (TWINRIX)
  • HIV counseling and testing
  • HPV vaccine (Gardasil)
  • Miscarriage management
  • Permanent sterilization
  • Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV prevention
  • Pregnancy testing and options counseling
  • STI testing and treatment
  • Transgender hormone therapy
  • Ultrasound dating
  • Urinary tract health and infection screening
  • Well-person exam

If planned Parenthood is defunded:  Your daughter, sister, wife, girlfriend, nieces, and any other woman in your life will loose access to this important and in many cases life saving care.  Could you live with yourself if your daughter or girlfriend died of cervical cancer because your local Planned Parenthood had to close because its funding was cut off?  The far right seems a bit too obsessed with what women do with their reproductive rights and this needs to stop.  In fact the government already does not fund Abortion Services, a fact that they don't seem to remember very well.  

Here is where to donate.  Half  of you donation goes to you local Planned Parenthood Clinic

If you can't afford to donate money, You can drop by with some coffee and donuts or some kind of food.

Here are some other ways you can help

We need to stop these right wing extremists from putting millions fo women's health and lives at risk
